Joseph Paul Tyree was the founder of Tyree Funeral Home. Prior to engaging in the funeral business, Joe Tyree ran a sawmill which in times past was a fairly natural progression. A sawmill owner or carpenter who provided wood and built caskets easily moved into providing other services and merchandise for the care of the dead. It was in 1915 that he started his funeral business in his barn at Maynor. In 1920 he moved the business to Pax where he operated for several years. At this same time he had a funeral home in Fayetteville and opened his first Oak Hill facility in 1927.
