It is the strong family bond that qualifies the Buresh Funeral Homes, Inc. to care for the funeral needs of any family with both competence and compassion.
The Buresh family tradition began in 1897 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 on Dix Highway and Sullivan Avenue. Anthony’s son and successor Edward Buresh, operated the firm at two different Detroit locations Greenfield Avenue near Fenkell and Puritan at Schaefer. Edwards successor Edward G. Buresh, Jr. operated the Puritan location until 1970 when he moved the family business to Oscoda, MI. The tradition continues as the next generation, Edward G. Buresh, III and Matthew W. Buresh both Oscoda High School and Michigan State University graduates carry on the succession of the Buresh-Bennett Funeral Home operations.
