Our History

Our Story

Graham's Mortuary has been part of Las Cruces since 1912 and its hacienda-styled building was constructed in 1948. Five years shy of the family business' 100th anniversary, ownership of the mortuary and crematory is now five years old with La Paz - Graham's Funeral Home. Salvador Perches (owner) joined his families business in 1990, well established in Juarez and in El Paso and now in San Diego. The staff is seasoned, kind and caring and had the privilege to learn the ways of Tommy Graham a community influence for years in Las Cruces.

Since 1958, Perches Funeral Homes has served families of all faiths who have suffered the death of a loved one. Our commitment for over fifty years has been to assist those who have been touched by such a loss with dignified, personal service at a reasonable, affordable cost.

In 1995 we opened our doors in El Paso, Texas to offer dignified services at a more affordable price to the community. We believe it is an honor in serving your family in these most difficult times, striving to provide everyone with information about funeral and cremation services so that families are able to make informed decisions.

Currently as of 2019, we have 6 locations in El Paso with our newest addition this year in Central El Paso. Accordingly, we have La Paz-Graham’s Funeral Home in Las Cruces,NM and La Paz-Perches in Odessa,TX.

Because of our expertise in the border city, we specialize in ship-outs to all of Mexico.

Funeral Director of the Year

This month, Perches was named Funeral Director of the Year by American Funeral Director, the “leading independent trade magazine for funeral directors nationwide.” The magazine honored him for his charitable work on both sides of the border and for serving victims in Juárez.

“This year, we celebrate Salvador Perches… as the recipient of our 2013 Funeral Director of the Year award, for his steadfast dedication to the families he serves – particularly the poor and victims of violence,” the magazine wrote in its December cover story.

Under the company name Grupo Perches, Perches owns and operates 19 funeral homes, including 11 in Juárez and four in El Paso, as well as funeral homes in Las Cruces, San Diego, Escondido and Tijuana. He says he is the only funeral director to own funeral homes in both El Paso and Juárez.

Unique Gift for Pope

While many refer to the altar as the stage area where the pope will be during mass at El Punto, the altar is the table used for the Eucharist celebration. It’s being made by 7 workers from the Perches Funeral Homes in Juárez.

“This idea came about from a group of businessmen and women from Juárez and El Paso,” says Omar Acosta, operations manager for the altar.

The businesses from both sides of the border are funding the altar and the ambo, which is the stand or pulpit used to place the bible.

Small Business Administration Awards

"Entrepreneurial Success: Salvador Perches, owner of 58-year-old Perches-La Paz Funeral Homes, which he took over in 2000 after his father died. It operates four funeral homes in El Paso, one in Las Cruces, and 11 in Juárez, according to the SBA."
