    Sean Joseph McCloskey


    As a teenager, Sean worked part time for a funeral home. That early experience witnessing the comfort and compassion shown to people at the most devastating times of their lives ignited a calling.

    While attending Humber College in Toronto, Sean met his wife-to-be, Louise, who was also in the funeral service education program. They were married in 1989 and they both became licensed funeral directors shortly after. Louise's father owned a funeral home in York Region, so the couple moved there and spent the next 25 years serving the Newmarket-Aurora community. Sean considers it a privilege to work alongside a dedicated team of funeral professionals.
