The story of Celebration of Life by Leggett-Patterson Funeral Home Inc. is a testament to a lifelong passion for helping people in their time of need. The late Mr. Frankie Patterson, the founder of the business, had a vision to establish a funeral home in his hometown of Eastover, North Carolina, where he could provide compassionate and dignified services to families in the community. His entrepreneurial mindset and passion for serving others led him to start his own funeral home, which has been serving Eastover since 2002.
Patterson's dedication to the funeral industry began at a young age, when he took an interest in the deceased and began taking photos of them. He spent countless years under the tutelage of many wonderful firms before he decided to open his own funeral home and add competition to the industry. Although he passed away in 2009, his wife, Mrs. Sharon L. Patterson, carried on his vision and established Celebration of Life by Leggett-Patterson Funeral Home Inc. in her hometown of Lumberton, North Carolina in 2017.
Mrs. Patterson, who previously worked as a hairstylist, went to school to become a licensed Funeral Director and continues to uphold the same passion and dedication to serving families in their time of need. Her commitment to combining her vision with her late husband's has led to the establishment of Celebration of Life by Leggett-Patterson Funeral Home Inc. as a trusted and compassionate provider of funeral services in the Robeson County community.
