Lesley Vance (1939-2015)

Lesley Vance (1939-2015)

Starting out as a funeral attendant and ambulance driverin May, 1959, Lesley Vance had no idea where this endevor would lead him. Lesley began working at Britton and Dobb Funeral Home located on 5th Avenue in Phenix City, Alabama. As his duties grew, his love for the profession also grew. His loyalty and commitment of many long hours of work and strong drive to succeed was recognized in 1972 when he was given the opportunity to purchase the Britton and Dobbs Funeral Home. Thus began his legacy of a long history of providing funeral services to the bi-city area.
