The current Griggsville location was constructed in the Fall of 2000.  The previous location in Griggsville was the former Skinner Funeral Home, operated by the Skinner family until they sold the business in 1986.  It became the Airsman-Hires Funeral Home in 1986, when Randy Hires began serving the families of Pike County.   Randy oversaw the construction of the new Funeral Chapel and continues to serve the Airsman-Hires Communities.

Randy Hires

Randy graduated from Carrollton High School with the Class of 1981.  After earning his degree in Photographic Technology from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Randy spent several years living and working in Texas.  He decided his work in Texas wasn't fulfilling, and returned to Carrollton, where his father, Jess Hires, told him he could work around the funeral home until he figured out what it was he wanted to do with his life.  Two years later Randy earned his Funeral Director's license from SIU-C and has never looked back.
