History

Signage at Melcher Mortuary Mission Chapel & CrematoryIn 1948, Larry J. Melcher established his funeral home, Larry J. Melcher Mortuary, with a desire to serve the Mesa, Arizona community. In 1972, Larry and his son, Larry C. (Skip) Melcher, opened a new location in East Mesa known as Larry C. Melcher Mortuary. Each funeral home operated independently until the death of Larry J. Melcher. At that time, Skip and his wife Mary took over the responsibility of both locations and renamed them Melcher Mortuaries. A crematory was added to Melcher Mortuary Mission Chapel, to provide additional service options. In 1995, the Melcher family constructed a state-of-the-art building on the same property.

Ongoing service to Mesa

At Melcher Mortuary Mission Chapel & Crematory, our team is actively involved in the Mesa community, serving on committees and working with various charitable organizations. Melcher Mortuaries was founded with the purpose of providing excellent service to Mesa-area families. That tradition has been passed down from generation to generation. Our team continues to honor the legacy of our founder, Larry J. Melcher, by providing compassionate care to the families we serve each and every day.

"I was so worried going into this experience that they were going to be pushing a lot of extras that I really didn't want but it was completely opposite. The staff was very kind, compassionate and made me feel very comfortable the day after the loss of my mom. I would recommend them to anyone."
