About Us

Family Owned and Operated

The Riley-Gardner Memorial Service Company is a family owned and operated business with the current ownership of Robert W. (Bob) Gardner and his son, Riley F. Gardner. The Gardner family, in its fourth generation in Hamilton, Texas, were preceded in ownership by original owners, Bob Riley, Kenneth Gardner, and Melvin Henkes, who purchased the business in 1957 from Elder Lynn Dalton.

Ken Gardner became the sole owner of the company in 1980 who was joined by his son, Bob, in the operation of the business in 1982 and began company expansion with multiple retail locations and funeral homes throughout Texas and Oklahoma. Riley F. Gardner returned to Hamilton and the business in 2003 implementing many state-of-the-art technological advances; gaining access to increased granite market from across the globe, and increasing opportunities for agents to work directly with the customer to design custom products at many locations.

Jon Lengefeld, who opened and operated Central Texas Memorial in 1999 to 2001, rejoined the Riley-Gardner Memorial family business in 2013 as Sales Manager.

They put someone else’s picture on my husband and I’d monument, so far it’s been 3 weeks and they still haven’t corrected their screw up! Do it when we have someone coming that way! I live in Lone Grove, OK and ordered from B&M monuments here! This is not their fault it lies with Riley Gardners monument makers, either in Hamilton or Wichita Falls, TX! There is no excuse for this and then to take weeks to correct is wrong! I lost my husband in December, so this is very devastating for me and our families! Be there when they set it to make sure it doesn’t happen to you! You have no idea how hurtful this is! I want to apologize to Riley Gardner because it was not their fault it was the people that fix the pictures they put the wrong names on the back. Our marker is gorgeous and I thank them for taking the time to find out how this happened.
