Our Values


Families of West Michigan have placed their trust and confidence in Sytsema Funeral Homes, Inc. since 1929. Family owned and operated, our team has grown to be Muskegon’s most respected name in funeral service. We, at Sytsema Funeral and Cremation Services, are honored by the families who have trusted us to care for their loved one and their willingness to recommend us to their family and friends.


While many funeral homes hire third-party crematories, we have our own crematory, located on-site at Sytsema Cremation Services that includes a private family viewing suite. Other funeral homes transfer your loved one to outside cremation services, making it impossible for the funeral home to manage and supervise the cremation. Sytsema's services are handled and managed by our certified staff, and your loved one never leaves our care.


Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of grieving, and often the first step in the healing process. When serving a family, our goal is to provide a caring, simple and affordable cremation service for their loved one. Together, we will walk through the process and help make decisions that suit their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now they will have deep peace-of-mind because, in coming to us, they’ve done their best to honor their loved one’s wishes.


The success of our company relies directly on our dedicated staff. This rewarding, yet challenging, profession of working at Sytsema Funeral and Cremation Services has our staff members striving for excellence in service, leadership and interpersonal skills.
