Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory has been a comforting presence in the heart of our community since 1910.  

The Myers Funeral Home was founded by the Myers family in 1910 and run by the family for more than 100 years. S. Harper Myers began the business after attending the Eckels College of Embalming and Sanitary Science in Philadelphia, where he was declared a master of the mysteries of the art of Embalming and of Sanitary Science. Eckels College was founded and operated by relatives of the late Mabel Eckels, who owned and operated the Eckels Drug Store & Ice Cream Parlor, which is located across the street from the our funeral home and is now owned and operated by Deb McCreary, a Myers-Buhrig team member.

In 1936, Harper was joined by his two sons, Martin L. Myers and Charles L. Myers. Martin remained in Mechanicsburg with his father while Charles opened a funeral home in Camp Hill. In 1958, the third generation, Boyd L. Myers, Sr., joined his father and grandfather. The firm was purchased by Martin in the early 1960s, and when he retired in 1977 it was purchased by Boyd Sr., who owned the firm until his death in 2009.

New Ownership. New Business.

In April 2011, during a time of distress for the business, Robert "Bob" Buhrig, Jr. was reacquainted with the firm, purchased the funeral home building, vehicles and physical assets from Boyd Sr.’s widow, and began a new business – the Myers-Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory, Ltd. At this time, Bob committed himself and the new company to make things right.

At the opening of the new business, Bob unveiled the only West Shore owned and operated crematory, so loved ones never leave the watchful care of Myers-Buhrig’s team.

Over the years, the name was changed to Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory and Buhrig's Gathering Place, a celebration center and restaurant, was unveiled next door. More than 100 parking spaces now support the combined buildings which also house complete monument services as well as full cafe and reception services.  New pricing and offerings were introduced, state-of-the-art technology was added and the historic buildings have undergone dramatic improvements and upgrades.

Additionally, Bob has developed a company culture of compassion by hiring and training team members who share his vision of caring for people in their time of need, walking with them on the journey of grief and helping people achieve the highest amount of healing possible.

Since establishing Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory and Buhrig's Gathering Place, Bob Buhrig’s vision of grounded growth has reconnected the business to the local Mechanicsburg community. From hosting historical society meetings, participating in local chambers of commerce, doing business with local businesses, and to caring for the oldest building in town, the historic Union Church, the devotion to the local community is evident.

Bob also gladly utilizes his local, national and international industry and speaking experience to present to community groups. If you would like to have Bob speak at one of your events, please contact us.

The Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory and Buhrig's Gathering Place remains a local, family-owned and operated business committed to families in our community – honoring the past and actively preparing for the future.
