Back in the 70’s and 80’s
oversize caskets were hard to get and poorly made.
Special size caskets were made by hand, and without much
regard to quality or integrity.
In 1985, Keith's father, Forrest Davis, (Pee Wee) quit
his job as a welder in a casket factory and said, “Boys,
I’m gonna go home and build oversize caskets that you
would be proud to put your mother in.”
He and his wife Mary, saw the need to produce a quality
oversize casket. The company started in an old converted
hog barn on their farm, by offering just two sizes and
one color. From those beginnings, the company expanded
rapidly to a full range of sizes starting at 29” wide,
up to 52” wide, and up to 8 feet long.
Keith and his wife Julane joined the business in 1990,
and later continued ownership after Forrest passing in
Our family business of 25 years has been committed to
serving the oversize casket needs of the bigger people.
