Bring Funeral Home Inc., family owned and operated since its 1928 founding in Tucson, has been sold to Tampa, Fla.-based Foundation Partners Group.

Susan Bring, whose grandfather founded the Tucson company, will stay active in it as a long-term consultant; all the staff has been retained; and “the name Bring continues forever,” said Paul Neville, the new general manager.

At age 65, with no children to leave the business to, as her father left it to her, Susan Bring wanted a succession plan “so it wouldn’t just go to auction” someday, Neville said. Bring was out of the office and unavailable for comment Monday.

Bring said in a written news release, “Succession of an 83-year-old family owned and operated funeral home is not easy. With Foundation Partners Group I feel they will not only continue the legacy of service to the Tucson community but bring new leadership and innovation; at the same time offering additional opportunities to my professional, dedicated and caring associates.”

Privately held Foundation Partners owns five cemeteries and 24 funeral homes nationwide, including one other in Arizona – Sunset Vista in Yuma, Neville said.

The company plans to make some capital improvements such as remodeling the two Bring’s locations, at 236 S. Scott Ave. and 6910 E. Broadway, and customers will see “some different options on memorializations,” Neville said.

The sale, for an undisclosed price, was final April 15, he said.

Bring “serves over 900 families annually with an impeccable reputation,” Jim Price, Foundation Partners executive vice president and chief operating officer, said in a news release.
