We help hundreds of individuals and families each year celebrate life with unique and healing tributes that reflect a life well-lived.

A carefully planned tribute brings peace

Regardless of whether a plan is simple or complex, when I help a family prepare in advance for their final life tribute, I always enjoy seeing the peace that they experience when they know everything is written down and will be taken care of according to their wishes.

my story

Many people wonder how I became interested in a career as a funeral planning specialist. When I was 16 years old, my best friend died unexpectedly. Literally, he was here today, gone tomorrow. I realized how fragile our lives are and that we need to live each day to the fullest. I live every day with the knowledge that none of us are guaranteed tomorrow, and that is what inspires me to do what I do. Today, I help families plan ahead for their final wishes when they are happy, healthy, and of good sound mind so that their families aren't forced to make these tough decisions on the worst day of their life.

personal pursuits

My wife Robyn and I have been married for over 25 years! We have two children, Caleb and Hannah. I am a Certified Minister and currently serve as the Missions Director at our church. Over the years, my wife and I have enjoyed participating in the worship band, church musicals, and singing together in countless wedding ceremonies. During my time off, I like to ride my motorcycle, mow the yard, read my Bible, travel the world, and spend quality time with my wife and kids. We have a very large family, so we are often off to a birthday party, graduation, or anything else that is a good excuse to eat some great food!
