About Buresh

The Buresh family tradition began when Anthony Buresh established a funeral home in Detroit, Michigan on Vernor Highway and Junction Street near Holy Redeemer Church. In conjunction with the funeral home, Anthony owned and operated a livery service renting horse drawn hearses and carriages to Detroit area funeral homes. Later, Anthony expanded adding two Detroit branch locations in Dix Highway and Sullivan Avenue. Anthony’s son and successor Edward Buresh, operated the Funeral Home at two different Detroit locations, Greenfield Avenue near Fenkell and Puritan at Schaefer. Edward’s successor, Edward G. Buresh, Jr. operated the Puritan location until 1970 when he moved the family business to Oscoda, MI. Matthew W. Buresh, an Oscoda High School and Michigan State University graduate and fourth generation Buresh, now leads the fine tradition of Buresh Funeral Home, Inc. services.
