Our History

Pride in the Past


In 1974, Samuel S. Buranich, Jr. purchased a landmark building on West Genesee Street in Camillus, a short drive from Syracuse. It was formerly the Lone Acre Tourist Home, operated by Charles and Ethel Dygert.


Retaining the stately colonial-style exterior, Mr. Buranich established his family funeral home with a deep commitment to helping his neighbors all around Syracuse in times of loss with personal attention, caring, and compassion.


In 2000, his son, Samuel III, joined the firm after earning his degree in Mortuary Science at SUNY Canton. Today, the firm offers the Camillus community a staff of six of your Camillus neighbors, all committed professionals who are ready to assist and support you at any time of the day or night.
