Kaz's calm demeanor and pleasant personality allow him to focus his attention and give comfort to those in need. After 2 years of teaching English in South Korea, Kaz Montgomery wanted to help people in a different capacity: funeral services with compassion. Kaz embarked on an apprenticeship program to become a funeral director and embalmer. Ever since, Kaz has been honored to help people with a professional and human-to-human approach to his work.
Kaz is married and has a son. His hobbies include traveling and playing hockey. He loves the following quote from Shakespeare in Richard III: “No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity. But I know none, and therefore am no beast.”
