OUR HISTORY

Chapman – J.T. Fisher Funeral Services is a business that follows in the footsteps of a history that is very rich to the Isle of Wight Community. It all began in the year 1937, when the late Richard Pretlow opened the doors of the business, servicing the community in funeral services from its previous Wharf Hill location. It was under his tutelage that the business’ next director, Mr. James B. Chapman, sharpened his interest and technique.

In 1963, Mr. Chapman acquired the business, which was to see a transitional move to its current location on West Main Street, and set forth, building relationships and meeting the needs of the local community during their times of loss. He continued in this until his official passing of the torch on September 3, 2017 to Portsmouth, Virginia native, J.T. Fisher, a funeral director who, in Chapman’s own words, checked all of the boxes in character, demeanor, and innovation. 

J.T. Fisher’s diligence to the profession has been exhibited in the greater Hampton Roads area dating back to 2004, when he opened the doors of J.T. Fisher Funeral Services at 1080 N. George Washington Highway, Chesapeake, Virginia 23323, a building which has since expanded to its improved location at 1248 N. George Washington Highway, also in Chesapeake. 

There, J.T. Fisher leads in service and innovation, so the extension of his reach to the Isle of Wight community was simply a matter of good measure and perfect timing. The next chapter of the business, under the name Chapman-J.T. Fisher Funeral Services, is one that ushers in new technology, a building makeover, and a fleet of cars expanded to five limousines, three utility vehicles, two hearses, and two lead cars. The organization has made modern advancements to the profession, while still recognizing and remembering the decades of time-honored history and community engagement that has been a staple for so long. We look forward to meeting your needs, in your time of need, and making your experience the best we can.
