Aurelius started his business out of his home at White Gate in 1896. For a brief period, the business moved to Poplar Hill, then back to White Gate in March 1957 to the present site of where the funeral home is now. The first part of the building was built by Edward S. and Robert C. Vest. A chapel, embalming room and rest room was completed by Edward Louis Vest in 1973, bring the building to its current structure.

Not only did Aurelius prepare the body for burial and built the coffin or casket, he also conducted many of the funeral services. he served the community in many ways, including being a pioneer with the construction and maintenance of a telephone system both to Pulaski and Staffordsville. Along with being a carpenter and cabinet maker, he also owned and operated the first threshing machine( a machine used to separate the seeds of harvested plant from the straw and chaff, husks or other residue) in the White Gate community.

He and his family threshed for many families. Lucian Aurelius Vest departed this life on September 6, 1955 at the age of 82 years old. His desire to learn, grow, help and always do his best has set the foundation and established business that is now in its fourth generation.
