A History of Caring
Wyman Cremation and Burial Chapel opened its doors in 1967. Ken Wyman, the owner, and founder, quickly earned a reputation for personalized service and compassionate care to the families who entrusted their loved one's to him. Mr. Wyman sold the business in 2004 to Samuel and Benjamin Bueler, third-generation funeral service professionals who learned from their father and grandfather. Mr. Samuel Bueler is a licensed funeral director, licensed embalmer, and licensed cremationist. He graduated from Arizona State University in 1996 and Mesa Community College of Mortuary Science in 1999.
Wyman Cremation and Burial Chapel have been privately owned since 1967, carrying on decades of dignified care at affordable prices.
Our Staff’s Dedication to Respectful Care
A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. Our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfill the wishes of your loved one. Our experienced Funeral Directors provide guidance on the crucial first steps toward healing.
Licensed Embalmer, Licensed Funeral Director, Licensed Cremationist
Sam Bueler is a third-generation funeral service professional, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. Some of his earliest memories are centered around the funeral home his grandfather owned and operated. He started helping from the ground up — sweeping walks and mowing lawns. Eventually, he was given the opportunity to learn to serve families. After graduating from Arizona State University (1996) and Mesa Community College of Mortuary Science, he has continued to serve families in the way he learned from his father and grandfather: with compassion and the utmost respect. He and his brother Ben, purchased Wyman Cremation & Burial Chapel from their friend, Ken Wyman, in 2004. In 2005, Ben and his family moved to Camp Verde, Arizona, where he owns and operates Bueler Funeral Homes (Camp Verde and Cottonwood). Sam served as a member of the adjunct faculty for Mesa Community College of Mortuary Science from 2002-2008, where he taught embalming, restorative art, and mortuary administration. He is a member of the International Plastic Modelers Society. He has two sons and enjoys reading, gardening, traveling, and building model aircraft for display.
