King-Lynk Funeral Home is a family owned and operated business. We were founded in 1974 by John  & Jim Lynk. They continue to work at the funeral home today. Jim's son, Jason Lynk is the second generation of the business and has been serving families since 1997. Heather Matlock was brought in to the business in 2006. We are large enough to provide all of the facilities and forward thinking ideas of a large funeral home, but small enough that each family gets the level of attention and care they deserve.
