Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

The Late Justin Wilson
Emeritus Funeral Director
Justin was born in Brigham City and grew up in Corinne, Utah. He was one of 6 children and enjoyed growing up in a small town. After school, Justin started work in production and spent a lot of time outdoors. He loved camping on the weekends and it was on a camping trip with friends that he met his wife, Spring. After they married, he continued work in production, but dreamed of another career. He wasn’t quite sure what he was supposed to do, but knew he wanted to make a difference.
In October 2010, he and his wife were planning to welcome their 3rd beautiful child and only daughter, Truce. They experienced what no parent should have to and lost her. The care and compassion they received from the Funeral Director during this difficult time led Justin in the direction he knew he wanted to take with his career. He moved his family to the Cache Valley area and then Preston where he started work setting up grave site services and placing headstones. In this job, he became familiar with many local Funeral Directors and grew more of a desire to pursue his dream to help others at their most difficult time. He Is grateful for the opportunity at Cache Valley Mortuary where he works with amazing people and friends and is excited to be part of such a great team.
He and his wife now have 5 amazing boys who he hopes to instill compassion and pass on the desire to be of service to others when they need it most.
Sadly, just passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 21, 2022 & will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and the families he would have served.
