I am the supervisor of the Youngsville facility. As a funeral director, I provide comfort to family and friends of the deceased, arrange details and handle the logistics of funeral and cremation services. Through personal interviews with the deceased’s family, I guide them toward the most meaningful funeral or cremation service.
After these choices are made, I help arrange the clergy members or other person who will officiate the service. With the family’s assistance, I establish the service location, date, and time of the visitation and viewing ceremonies, memorial services and cemetery committal services. Depending on the service choice, I will arrange for a hearse to transport the deceased from the funeral home or mortuary to the final resting pace.
I also prepare obituary notices and place them in desired newspapers, arrange for pallbearers and clergy, and schedule the opening and closing of the grave with the cemetery.
My goal is to carry out all of these responsibilities with discretion and compassion in order to serve the families in my community.
I grew up in the funeral business prior to graduating from Duff’s Business College in Pittsburgh, Jamestown Community College in Jamestown, New York and the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science.
