Russell & Hitch to change owners

Jerry Trapp, who has owned and operated the two Russell & Hitch Funeral Homes in Boone County, is leaving the business. He is negotiating with Matt Hunt to sell the funeral home at 116 W. Plum St., Thorntown, and has signed an agreement with Key Auctioneers to sell the funeral home at 223 N. Meridian St. in Lebanon. Key Auctioneers administered the sale of the former Boone County Jail at 104 E. Washington St., just a block from the funeral home, this spring. Trapp, 67, intends to sell the 3,494-square-foot Thorntown funeral home, as well as the Russell & Hitch name and the phone number to Hunt, he said. “My health isn’t that good anymore,” Trapp said. “It’s time to do something else.” See Thursday's Lebanon Reporter for more on this story.
