History & Staff

Personalized service options allow you to honor your loved ones in a way that is both meaningful and healing. We hope to provide support and caring while delivering memorial services that celebrate life and help families find the peace they deserve.
If you’re seeking an honorable celebration of life, we invite you to learn more about where we came from, our vision, and the dedicated people behind our work.

Our History

Regency Mortuary & Crematory was established in 2000 by Lawrence Goldberg. He saw a need for an affordable mortuary in the Sun City area. In 2013, John Perkes, a second-generation funeral director, purchased the funeral home. Over two decades since our founding, we remain a local funeral home committed to families throughout Maricopa County

We believe that funeral arrangements shouldn’t be needlessly stressful or expensive. We are here for you and your loved ones 24/7, 365 days a year.

Our Staff’s Dedication to Respectful Care

A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. Our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfill the wishes of your loved one. Our experienced Funeral Directors provide guidance on the crucial first steps toward healing.
