In 1972, local high school instructor, Fred H. Holladay, pursued a dream and built the Holladay Hills Funeral Home in Santaquin, Utah. As he continued teaching at Tintic High School he and his wife, Betty Lou, began a tradition of generous and caring service. This continued until his death in 2003.
At that time the funeral home was purchased by Mark Brown and his wife Jamie, a local funeral director who had been a support to Mr. Holladay towards the end of his career. The name of the funeral home was changed to Holladay-Brown Funeral Home. In 2012 the time came to update the name of the mortuary to Brown Family Mortuary.
Mark brings with him 30 years of experience in funeral service. He has served as President of the Utah Funeral Directors Association and as a member of the National Funeral Directors Policy Board.
Mark is assisted by his wife, Jamie, and son, Justin.
