Ribbon Cutting Held At Draper G. Myers Mortuary LLC On Dargan Street

February 03, 2022

His desire to become a mortician started in high school with Career Day at Pamplico High School.

On that day, Draper G. Myers said, “I want to be a mortician.”

“It wasn’t easy,” he said. “It took a lot of prayers and endurance.”

On Tuesday, the prayers and endurance paid off, and with the help of others, Myers celebrated the opening of Draper G. Myers Mortuary LLC on Dargan Street in Florence. A ribbon cutting, hosted by the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce, was held on January 24th to celebrate his joining the Chamber.

A large crowd gathered at 615 S. Dargan St. in Florence for the occasion, including family, friends, and chamber staff and ambassadors.

Myers said he acquired the house last April and opened the funeral home and cremation services on Dec. 14.

Myers said he has been involved in the funeral business since he was about 12 years old.
