Kent, I think it's just a matter of grammar and/or a missing hyphen. I think it would make more sense if they said, "Hafer Funeral Home Director-Emeritus Steve Strickland" or "Director-Emeritus Steve Strickland of the Hafer Funeral Home".

"A replica 1966 Ford Ambulance has been a labor of love for Hafer Funeral Home Director Emeritus Steve Strickland."

It is correct the way it is. He is the Director Emeritus for the Hafer Funeral Home. "Hafer Funeral Home Funeral Director Emeritus..." would be redundant.

I would tend to agree with Steve, and your second phrase would probably be best. My point is that many, many times when we are identified with media, the term "funeral HOME director" is used. In most states, the license will read funeral director, funeral service, etc... I don't know of a state that uses, or does the profession use, "funeral home director"...

A member of the funeral home is already a member, so I believe that he is familiar with our club.

What drives me nuts is when the media states a Memorial Service is taking place when the body is present and casketed. It is not a Memorial Service it is a Funeral Service. Or they have the casket open and it is reversed with the head at the foot end. Geez!!!
