The Darst Family


John Darst has spent his entire life in the funeral and cemetery industry. His parents purchased a cemetery and he grew up working with them to build the business. As an adult, he became a funeral director and has spent his entire career working to serve families in their time of need. Darst Funeral Home is the realization of his dream to build a funeral home that would truly put families first.

John and his wife Anne have been Kingwood residents of over 15 years. They have 4 children and 8 grandchildren.

John’s daughter Erin has written several articles, featured in Dock Line Magazine, about her experience growing up behind the scenes of the funeral industry. We are excited to share them with you here. We’d love to know what you think.
