Publication features local funeral director

Eric L. Fithyan, funeral director and owner of the Chambers and James Funeral, Pet and Cremation Services, has received recognition in a national publication.

An article in the April-May edition of Funeral Business Adviser featured an interview in which Fithyan discussed his business practices, techniques and success of the funeral homes.

“I am honored to be interviewed and help other funeral directors learn of our success at the funeral homes. I would not think being a graduate of Brooke High School and from a small town that people all over the United States would look at us as being a success. It proves that it is not the area but the people we learn from and our heart that makes us,” Fithyan said.

The Chambers and James Funeral Homes of Follansbee and Wellsburg have received numerous awards and recognition. Fithyan also serves as president of the Ohio District of the West Virginia Funeral Directors Association.
