Encore Funeral and Cremation is owned and operated by Rhett Buckley. Rhett has worked for over 30 years as a funeral provider in the Denver metro area. Rhett graduated from the California school of Mortuary Science in 1979 and began serving Colorado families in 1981. After first working 12 years for a local Littleton firm and then a large out of state funeral corporation, he opened his own facility in 1997.

His compassion for families during their moment of need extends beyond the borders of the United States. In 2008, Rhett helped build a much needed morgue at a mountain hospital in Rwanda, Africa. As a man of faith, Rhett understands the significance of the talents he has been bless wtih and the importance of giving back to the community by helping as many families as possible with their funeral needs.
After a 3 year hiatus, Rhett is now serving the Denver metro again. The name, Encore Funeral and Cremation Services was inspired by the very definition of the word "encore." His vision is to "once again" provide ALL metro Denver families wanting to avoid the financial costs typically encountered through traditional funeral establishments with simple and dignified funeral and cremation services.
Encore's philosophy is to provide the family with substantial savings while still providing an expectional service so that the family loved one will be treated with dignity and the utmost respect. There are many funeral providers in Denver. But before choosing, a family should consider what options will best fit their needs. A loved ones passing is a challenging time, and Encore, wants to ensure that your family gets the best treatment possible. Regardless of who you choose, Rhett and his staff wish you and your family the very best during this time of need.
