Gilbert, AZ – For the second year in a row, Gilbert Memorial Park has received East Valley Tribune’s Best Funeral Home and Cemetery award. The achievement is all the more impressive considering the funeral home has only been in operation for two years.

Though the funeral home and cemetery are new, the family behind them are not. Many Mesa residents will be familiar with the Bunker family, who have owned and operated Bunker Family Funerals & Cremation for decades. Gilbert Memorial Park’s modern design, innovative cemetery, and focus on renewal and healing are a result of the Bunker family’s sensitivity to the evolving needs of families.

“We are so grateful to our community for trusting and supporting us as we’ve embarked on this mission to change what funeral service and final resting places can be,” says Bryce Bunker, President of Gilbert Memorial Park. “More than anything, we want families to feel like this is a place they can visit to peacefully reconnect with the memories of their loved ones.”

Everything in both the funeral home and cemetery are designed to encourage restorative reflection and tranquility, from the landscaping to the covered patio. Other unique features found at their facilities include private family estates, chalk walls, a glass niche wall, a cremation garden, and more.

“They put all of my concerns at ease just by the kind of people they are and how they lovingly cared for my deceased loved one,” says Andrea Andersen, resident. “The park is beautiful and serene. I am comforted each time I go there…I am so thankful that we have the best here in Gilbert.”

Like the environment of the Park, many of the services held there are innovative and modern, allowing families to celebrate the lives of their loved ones with completely unique approaches. Gilbert Memorial Park’s funeral directors are well known for working with families to plan services that are as special as the person.
