Curtis Wilkey

Curtis Wilkey

Managing Funeral Director

Curtis has always wanted to be a funeral director - even from the early age of 7 he remembers watching the hearse pass him on the street headed to the cemetery knowing that someday he would be the one driving that car. Growing up in Nephi, Utah, he is the son of Byron and Rosalie Wilkey, and is the sixth of nine children, three of which siblings died in infancy.

From a very young age he learned the value of hard work from his father and learned that he was truly happy while being in the service of others. Curtis became an Eagle Scout at age 14 and served an LDS Mission in Michigan at age 19.

In 1993, after working various jobs, he decided to pursue his dream of becoming a Funeral Director. He packed up his family and moved to California to work for Wilson and Kratzer Mortuaries while attending San Francisco College of Mortuary Science. This opportunity provided him with the greatest experience on all sides of the mortuary profession. He earned the highest scholastic achievement, the Mu Sigma Alpha award, in 1995.

In January 1996, as a Licensed Funeral Director, Curtis began his career at Wheeler Mortuaries, serving the families of Springville and Mapleton, where he had been for 20 years before being made manager over Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary.

He feels it is his "Calling" in life, not just his profession, to carry out with dignity and honor the final services of those who have died.

Curtis is known by all for his peaceful countenance, compassionate understanding and tender care for those who have lost their loved ones. Directed and determined all his life, he is now extremely accomplished in every aspect of what it takes to be an excellent Funeral Director, father, and husband, all of which are very important to him.

Curtis loves biking, four-wheeling and camping. He is known for his funny sense of humor and his unique and endearing love for his wife, April, and their nine children.
