My friend Anna Marshall Rodriguez died Oct. 25th, 2023. I was her Executor. She had chosen Bunker some years ago. Heather was my contact & she was most compassionate. She even stayed at the church while we had a reception for Anne before going to the Cemetery. Anything I needed was taken care of immediately. Nice to have that kind of service when I was saddened by the death of my long time friend.

Our experience with Bunker was actually perfect in every way. Their professionalism, care, follow-through and helpfulness lacked nothing and made our stressful time more peaceful. We will continue to use Bunker for future needs and heartily recommend them to other families!

My son Duane was killed in a car accident in December and we picked Bunker off the internet. I am so glad we made that choice because Steve, the man assigned to us by the mortuary, was a great help. All of the people who worked there were wonderful and made sure we had what was needed. We will use them again.

Lesa and staff at Bunker Garden Chapel are wonderful! After my Mom passed in Chandler, we needed to transport my my Mom from AZ to San Diego, CA, where she had pre-arranged funeral plans. They made everything so easy and stress-free during a difficult time. Our funeral home in San Diego also shared how seamless everything went and how great Bunker was to work with. Thank you!!!

Bunkers was wonderful to work with. Everyone was kind and very knowledgeable in all of the many difficult things that must be handled when a loved one passes. They took very good care of my mother and her funeral. It was a seamless process for our family. Thank you Bunkers!

If we could give 10 stars we would. My father unexpectedly passed away and all of us live out of state. Bunker Family Funerals, and Marybeth specifically, could not have been kinder to us, or more patient with our questions and out-of-state calls. They even arranged for my brother to spend time with my dad on short notice, and have proactively checked in on us during the process.It is impossible to express the depth of our relief and gratitude to Bunker Family Funerals and Marybeth for what they have done for our family. It is obvious that Bunker is family owned and puts the needs and tender feelings of families above all else. The milk of human kindness is in evidence at Bunker Family Funerals.

I'm so grateful for the efficient and professional way that Bunker handled my wife's passing. We had a very quick timeframe from her passing to her graveside service. Bunker came through in spectacular fashion. And through the entire process I felt their concern for me and my family. I wholeheartedly recommend Bunker to handle your loved one's passing.

Bunker family funeral & cremation was very easy to work. As we are Buddhist they are very welcoming to our family and friends for my mom funeral services. I would recommend my friends and family to go there. If I can give them 10 stars I will. And the staff are all friendly and tentative ❤️❤️❤️

As the COO of a funeral home in Washington State, I had the recent opportunity to work with the Bunker Family in Mesa. Their compassion, professionalism, and efficiency are unparalleled. The deceased was one of my relatives, and Bunker handled everything with the utmost respect and care, providing tremendous comfort to myself and the family. Lesa helped us and her communication was clear and prompt, ensuring a seamless transport. I highly recommend Bunker Family Funerals for their unwavering commitment to helping families navigate their most challenging moments. Truly top-tier in their field.

Kelly and the staff at Bunkers are wonderful. After having to plan a funeral just three months prior with a different funeral home I was worried this would be another horrible experience. It was the complete opposite. They were so kind and helpful with everything that we needed for the funeral to run smoothly. Their chapel was perfect with amount of seating as well.

Absolutely the best FH! They treated me with the utmost respect. I’m so happy I chose them as in hindsight I can see the other places I called to check out would NOT have given me service I could trust. Do yourself a favor so you can sleep at night when it’s all said and done and you can’t go back to make changes! Chose Bunker.

Not sure I can justly say how I feel about Bunker’s and our latest experience with this company and Stephanie. Wow.Sadly, this was our second time working with Bunker’s Funeral Home. My husband died nine years ago and my family and I were blessed to work with this company. Compassionate, loving , and respectful. Just recently, four days before CHRISTmas, my youngest daughter and her husband were killed in a car crash, on a dark highway, when driving home to Arizona to spend the holidays with us. Bunker’s immediately got on board and once again they guided us through our tragedy. Hands on, direct and constant communication with answers suggestions, advice and love. Our kids’ viewing the night before and the their service the next day were both beautiful. We had to wait for the weekend to be over, New Years, we had the graveside service the following Tuesday. Again, Bunker’s Funeral Home made it a peaceful and memorable event for our family and close friends. Stephanie and Debbie, thank you so much. We love you. The Cook Family

I was hit with a really hard decision to make after the unexpected passing of my father... What funeral home do I intrust my father's body with. I am so thankful I stumbled across Bunker Family Funerals & Cremation. Stephanie was AMAZING. She contacted me right away and was beyond empathetic and supportive. After just loosing my mother less than 2 months prior we weren't financially ready or prepared for the cost of cremation services. Stephanie went through everything step by step answering any and all questions my family had. She worked with me until I was able to raise the money needed. Bunker Family was professional and personable every step of the way. I received my father's ashes in the urn and necklaces I bought the day after his cremation. Every time I spoke with Stephanie in person or over the phone she reassured me my father was in good hands. I can't thank her enough for being so amazing. It truly takes the kindest of people to work in a setting like that. They even checked up on me well after the math, just to see how I was holding up. Thank you Bunker Family from the bottom of my heart.

We have known for a while that Bunker Family Funerals was who we wanted to go to when the time came. Stephanie Morris took such good care of my family when my wife passed away. She was with my family and me every step of the way and provided excellent advice and suggestions. This caring group of people made a difficult time so much easier. The funeral and burial went flawlessly. Since then they have reached out several times to check on my well being and offer support and encouragement. I can't say enough about this caring and professional business.

Bunker Funerals did a wonderful job with my mother-in-law in spite of the circumstances. They were kind and thoughtful throughout the entire process. They treated me and my family with patience, dignity, and respect. We would recommend this place to any family. They even did a follow-up call to check on my wife after her mother passed.

I give this company 5 stars for very many reasons my father passed and we all know its never an easy time . I was lost confused never delt with somthing like this before .let me tell you the ladies that helped me with the process were there for me in more ways than i could have imagined .if i needed space they gave it to me whatever request i had they made. if i was uncomfortable in any way they made it better I could not have asked for a better team to be by my side and my father's. I highly recommend leaving the care of a loved one to them and i guarantee you won't regret your decision thank you Debbie and Stephanie from the bottom of my heart!!

We had a wonderful experience working with Heather and staff at Bunker Family. Our first call was answered promptly and everyone there was very responsive after that. We appreciated getting an answer to any question quickly and accurately. No one wants to know a good funeral home, but it was nice to have them by our side. Preplanning is a kind thing to do for your family. Don't put it off.

It takes special people to handle end of life, especially with everyone so emotional. Lisa definitely has a gift we are so glad she assisted us. Everyone at Bunkers was very professional and respectful. Thank you so much for the quality care you gave to our loved one.
