Leggette Funeral Home, one of the first black-owned funeral homes in the northern area of Horry County, was established in 1945 by the late, Mr. Goldie Leggette. Under Mr. Leggette’s leadership, Leggette Funeral Home serviced Loris and surrounding counties. In 1973, Mr. Leggette met the late, Mr. William Penn Troy, Sr. at a mortician’s convention and developed a friendship, as well as a long-lasting work relationship. They both shared the same vision of providing service that was meaningful and special for families.
In 1988, Mr. Goldie Leggette was called home, and Mr. William Penn Troy continued the history of the funeral home and continued its operation. In 1989, the funeral home was renamed Leggette-Troy Funeral Home. Under Mr. Troy’s leadership, Mr. Freddie Bostick managed Leggette-Troy Funeral Home. In 2020, Mr. William Penn Troy, Sr. took his final rest and passed the baton to his son, Mr. Shawn Troy. Under the vision and leadership of Shawn, the legacy continues in his father’s footsteps. Mr. Bostick continues to manage this establishment and is committed to providing families with the utmost compassion and care.
Leggette-Troy Funeral Home will continue to provide dignity, integrity, and professional services. Leggette-Troy Funeral Home is committed to serving Horry County, the city of Loris and surrounding regions for years to come. With over 75 years of combined experience in funeral services, we have come to understand that funerals are for the living, they are a celebration and remembrance of life.
