Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crematory have been a part of the Indianapolis community for more than 100 years, serving thousands of families throughout central Indiana. During the past year, a number of locally owned funeral businesses have made the decision to be part of the firm’s success by merging with Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crematory.
According to president Paul St. Pierre: “The growing businesses of the six Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crematory locations in Indianapolis, Greenwood, Franklin, and Pendleton has created a need for skilled executives to maintain and improve the level of service families have come to expect from Wilson St. Pierre. As a result, I am pleased to welcome David Andrew “Andy” Clayton as executive vice president.”
“With this Zionsville native joining our team, we know we will be successful continuing to provide our families with excellent, caring service.”
A lifelong resident of Zionsville, Clayton is a second generation funeral director, following his father, Jerrit’s footsteps. He attended Mid America College of Funeral Service where he graduated with honors. Since 1995, Clayton has been a licensed Indiana funeral director and embalmer.
Clayton is active in both the community and various levels of funeral service associations. His professional activities include 2013 to 2014 president of the Indiana Funeral Directors Association, professional development committee member for the National Funeral Directors Association, vice president of Zionsville Cemetery Association, life member of Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice and certified funeral service practitioner.
“One of the most important decisions a funeral professional can make is whether to associate with a locally owned funeral business or a national corporation. I am very proud that these funeral professionals have chosen me to help,” Clayton said. “One of the most important decisions a family can make is knowing a local funeral director when they need one. I strive to meet the needs of the families we serve, and hope to focus on those locally. I look forward to continuing to serve families in Boone County as I have the last 20 years. Even my dad wants to come out of retirement and provide assistance when asked.”
