Mortuary installs new crematory

Redwood Memorial Chapel recently took delivery of a new, state-of-the-art Thermtec Cremator.

“We felt it was time to upgrade,” said the Chapel’s President Travis Sandusky in the decision to replace the older cremation equipment. 

 

“Cremation is a central part of our service, and providing it locally with the highest level of dignity and respect is the primary focus of our business.”  

Local contractors Josh Bruce of New Creation Builders and Sage Bruce of Sage Bruce Construction handled the installation of the new cremation equipment, which uses current technology to increase efficiency. Sandusky says the efficiencies realized by the new unit will help keep costs in line with other providers who have the convenience and economy of natural gas service versus the delivered propane that is available in Curry County.  

“We pride ourselves in providing complete service and controlling the quality in every step. Others subcontract the cremation process out to the least expensive provider they can find; the problems that we hear about surrounding cremation usually arise from this type of arrangement,” Sandusky said.

Redwood Memorial Chapel has provided on-site cremation services to residents of Curry and Del Norte counties since 2001. In 2011, the business was purchased by Travis and Alice Sandusky. 

With locations in Brookings and Crescent City, Redwood Memorial offers cremation and funeral services, as well as guaranteed prearrangements, whole body donation, personalized printing and DVD production, and monument and marker design and installation.

Food safety investigations in the United States begin - and often end - at the local level, and some states limit the disclosure of implicated restaurants, keeping diners in the dark.
