Wills’ Funeral Service, Inc. was established in July 1993 by Rev. Joe C. Wills, a native of Tuscaloosa, Ala. Together with his daughter Val F. Wills has created a family business with a second generation. From humble beginnings, Wills’ Funeral Service first located on Lurleen Wallace Blvd. in Northport, Al. serving the Greater West Central Alabama area. This facility was only a 3,000 square ft. building and soon became to small to support the growing business.
