The cemetery began as Paradise Memorial Gardens in 1969 at which time it took a long dusty ride for most to visit the cemetery. During the 70's Paradise Memorial Gardens added a full service funeral home and in 1977 was purchased by the Davis Family and the name was changed to Davis Paradise Valley Funeral Home and Paradise Valley Memorial Park. In 2005 the name was shortened to Davis Funeral Home and Memorial Park.
Our cemetery is approximately 40 acres and we have 8 acres of undeveloped property. We have 10,000 + burials and entombments, an onsite crematory, 3 mausoleums, private family estates, cremation gardens, many beautiful features, and are an Endowment Care Cemetery ensuring that even when all of the property is developed and sold the cemetery will be maintained as a beautiful park.
The heritage in our park begins with the Paradise Mausoleum built in 2003. It is a 2 level mausoleum featuring a fountain water feature, fully maintained restrooms, elevator, private balcony, upstairs sitting area, climate control for the cold winters and very hot summers, and a beautiful chapel area. The mausoleum allows families an alternative to ground burial as well as the features already mentioned. Mausoleum entombment is one of the oldest forms of burial. We also have 2 additional mausoleums, our Garden of Roses and Chapel of Peace. These buildings offer limited crypt space, but there are available cremation niches and unique glass front niches for those families wishing that type of interment.
Davis Memorial Park has been the choice of many politicians, celebrities and prominent people within our community. We have the gravesite of Sonny Liston, Sonny was a formidable boxer who became world heavyweight champion in 1962. He later lost the title to a young Muhammad Ali in 1965. Bo Belinsky was a Major League Baseball Pitcher with the Los Angeles Angels under owner, "Singing Cowboy" Gene Autry. Bo threw the teams first no hitter and first no hitter at Dodger Stadium in 1962. We still have many Angels fans visit and pay their respects while visiting Las Vegas.
