Press Release: Dedication of the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery

The public is invited to the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery dedication ceremony on Saturday, March 26th at 10:00 A.M. located at 15950 N. Luckett Road.

The dedication will be coordinated by the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery Foundation Inc. Marana, a non-profit dedicated to raising and providing funds for the facility.

“The cemetery will be a tremendous asset, not only for Marana, but the entire Southern Arizona region,” said Mayor Ed Honea at the ground breaking ceremony in November 2015. “We need to do as much as we can to honor and respect our veterans.”

The Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery in Marana will serve as a place of refuge and peace, providing emotional comfort to the families of veterans buried there. The 42 acres of land were donated by the Kai Family Foundation of Marana, and will contain pre-placed crypts as well as columbarium niches.
