Morris-Baker Funeral Home owned and operated by Preston McKee, and as a local, family-run funeral home, we have a singular focus on the Johnson City and Washington County area. We have been serving the families of these communities since 1915, so our values of caring for all and providing the highest quality have been passed down from generation to generation.

We take seriously our responsibility to and for our community, and we want to see it thrive. To that end, we reinvest in the Johnson City area and have supported the Tweetsie Trail, Parks and Recreation, the Washington County United Way, Family Promise, Langston Education & Arts Development (LEAD), the Senior Center, the Alzheimer’s Association’s local chapter, and other important causes and resources vital to local families.

Because we live in the community we serve, we understand the traditions and values most important to our families and can ensure their needs are met, and since nothing is more important than our relationship with our own community, we offer a satisfaction guarantee for any family who allows us to help them in their time of need.
