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. After building a highly respected funeral business within the community, Rhett sold his company to pursue other interests in 2007.

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.
