Our History

Centuries of service. Some funeral homes are justly proud of their generations of service to their client families. But not many can claim to have served their communities for hundreds of years. In fact, Fred Dickey Funeral Home and Cremation Services is almost as old as Laredo itself.

Some of our early history has been lost in time, but we do know that sometime in the 1800s, John Convery set up his livery stable and funeral business in what would become downtown Laredo. In 1917, H. L. Jackson purchased the funeral establishment and operated it with his sons as the Jackson Funeral Home, serving Laredo for well over fifty years. In the 1970s it was purchased by Services Corporation International, and brought back to local ownership by Fred Buitron in 1991. He changed the name to Buitron Funeral Home and moved to its present address at the old Laredo Air Force Base. In 2007, Fred Dickey, Jr. purchased Buitron Funeral Home.

Today, we serve Laredo as Fred Dickey Funeral and Cremation Services, Buitron Chapel. We uphold our firm’s legacy of service by exceeding your expectations in all areas of our business. Excellence is our minimum standard. When you trust us to help honor your loved one, you will be treated with no other measure. That is our goal, and our promise.
