The Proprietors

For nearly two decades, Ray & Ruthie Wilson have been helping the fine citizens of the Conyers community and cities all around the southeast part of the country say goodbye to loved ones with dignity and respect.   The couple met while they were both attending Gupton Jones College of Funeral Service.  And they have made it their calling to provide superior service to each and every family that calls on their expertise.

Ray Wilson was exposed to the funeral service industry as a teen through his family owned funeral home in Asheville, NC.  Prior to hanging a shutter at Premier Crematory LLC, he spent three years active duty in the US Navy and 6 years in the Naval Reserve.  He credits his military training and his ability to focus on each detail as one of the qualities that set him apart from the rest of his competition in the cremation industry.  Mr. Wilson takes great pride in making sure every family has the kind of service they desire and a service that respectfully and appropriately honors their loved ones’ memory.
