Loma Vista Memorial Park has been the neighborhood cemetery for Fullerton and the surrounding communities since 1914. It was started by our grandfather Argus Brutus Adams and friend Emanuel Smith. As they saw the needs of the community, Adams and Smith agreed that Fullerton needed a cemetery; and Loma Vista Cemetery Association was born. The original 37.5 acres was purchased from the Bastanchury Family for $15,000.00. Many Fullerton pioneer families are interred in Loma Vista Memorial Park.
Grandson, Richard Adams, has been President of Loma Vista since 1975. Great-grandson, Kurt Adams began working at Loma Vista at the age of 16 mowing the lawns. After graduating from University of Southern California, he gained experience in the cemetery and funeral industry. He is now our Cemetery Manager.
Loma Vista Memorial Park has evolved over the years from its original country traditional burials. We now have five cremation chambers on our premises and have performed over 45,000 cremations. We encourage families to visit our facilities in order to familiarize themselves with the cremation process, in order to feel more comfortable with their decision.
In 1991, we continued our growth and expanded our cremation and mortuary services through West Coast Cremation, Inc. After seventeen years, our small mortuary evolved. Now known as Loma Vista Mortuary, we offer complete mortuary services for burial and cremation, as well as a complete line of merchandise to suit the needs of the families we serve, keeping our commitment to the traditions and values established by decades of family-owned businesses throughout the nation.
Whether you prefer traditional burial, cremation or full-casket entombment, Loma Vista Memorial Park offers a large array of interment choices.
