H. Reese Taylor
Funeral Director / Vice President of Operations

Reese was born in Lubbock, Texas and a graduate of Smyer High School, and attended South Plains College on a livestock judging scholarship. In 2006 he enlisted in the United States Army, being stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington after basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia. He served our country for 6 years, with one tour in Afghanistan as an infantryman, assigned to a Stryker Brigade. After returning from his tour of duty, in the summer of 2012, Reese made the decision to move to the Texas Hill Country and pursue a career in the Funeral Profession as a valued member of the KFH Team. Having obtained his Certificate as a Certified Crematory Operator, he then graduated from Dallas Institute of Funeral Service, Dallas, TX in November of 2014 and became a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer in the State of Texas after successfully negotiating the exams of the International Conference of Examining Boards.

In August of 2015, Reese married Amanda Evans Taylor, whom he met while residing in Dallas. They now make their home Kerrville, TX where Amanda is also a Funeral Director with the family business. Cooper Reese Taylor, the “mini” Reese, is his pride and joy, and the reason he works hard every day to be a father that his son can be proud of. Reese enjoys golfing, hunting and spending time with his family and friends. He is also a loyal fan of the Texas Tech Red Raiders," Guns Up!"

Reese is a member of the Texas Funeral Directors Association, National Funeral Directors Association, the Cremation Association of North America, the Hill Country Funeral Directors Association, and the Funeral Ethics Association, along with membership in Kerrville Area Chamber of Commerce, and the West Kerr Chamber of Commerce, Junction Chamber of Commerce, and the Levelland Chamber of Commerce.
Reese is very thankful for the opportunities life has dealt his way. He is very pleased to be a part of the Team for Kerrville, Kimble, and Krestridge Funeral Homes, and looks forward to having a long and fulfilling career helping families in the area that we serve.
