Glen has been a career funeral director and involved in the profession for more than 28 years now. His commitment extends well beyond the environment of the work place. Professional associations include the Niagara District Funeral Service Association and currently he sits on the Board of Directors of the Toronto District Funeral Directors Inc. and Ontario Funeral Service Association. Glen is the father of two beautiful young ladies, Sadie and Emma, who have completed their university education and aspire to work with children. Community has always been a strong hold for him with volunteering with Daval Hospice, Stamford Lions Club, Big Brothers Association of Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls Historical Museum – Cemetery Tours, Niagara Falls Block Parent Association and the Knights of Columbus. Recently Glen has expanded his ability in certain fields of web design and had the distinct pleasure to play a role in the construction and configuration of this very site. Glen also enjoys getting his hands dirty with home repairs and renovations and some of his favorite things to do include photography, the outdoors and enjoying a country drive on his motorcycle.
