Our Story

Fowler Funeral Home (formaly Wylie Funeral Home) was founded in 1897 by the late T. J. Brickell at 120 South Main in Brinkley, Arkansas. The firm was sold to Milwee-Dunlap Furniture and Undertaking Company in 1930. The funeral home operated under this name until 1936 when J. B. Dunlop bought out his partner and operated the facility as Dunlop Funeral Home. In 1937, the funeral home was purchased by Davis Wylie, the name was changed to Wylie Funeral Home, who continue to operate the funeral home at 120 South Main until 1957 when it was moved to 209 South Main Street. 

Coday Fowler purchased the firm from Davis Wylie in 1966. The name was changed to Wylie-Fowler Funerar Home, and a new funeral home was constructed at 210 South Main Street and is still used to this day.
