Member Spotlight: 

Ralph O Jones Funeral Home


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my family.  My name is Austin Ledford.  I have had the privilege to work for Steven Fuller for the last 8 years as a Funeral Director at the Walker-Nadler-Fuller and the Ralph O Jones Funeral Homes.  Upon Steven's retirement, my wife and I had the opportunity to purchase both funeral home locations.  We approach our business just as we approach our life, with complete devotion and passion for the care of everyone we serve.  I have worked in the funeral industry since 2006, and have held my Funeral Directors and Embalmers Licenses in Missouri and Kansas since 2009.  This is a way of life, not just a job, for myself and my family.  We feel honored to help our community members in some of their greatest times of need.
 My wife, Christy, and I met in 2006 and were married in 2010, and we have been blessed with two beautiful children.  Asher, who is 8 years old, and Addison, who is 5 years old.  Our son loves all things related to science, baseball, and basketball.  Our daughter loves all things involving horses, unicorns, and keeps us laughing everyday.  My wife is a pharmacist at The University of Kansas Health System.  Our family has deep-seated values in faith, honesty, and a sincere desire to serve those around us.  Just as my wife has spent her career serving her patients, I too have dedicated my career to serving people as if they were my own family.

I have been fortunate to meet many of you over the last 8 years, and I look forward to making new relationships with those I have yet to meet.  Our family will be here to humbly serve your family for many years to come.  If you have any questions or would like to meet, we would love to hear from you!
