For more than 2 decades, Seth has assisted hundreds of families throughout the country in preparing for funerals. Seth entered the funeral industry in 1989 in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. The exposure solidified his interest and commitment to the profession, and in 1992, he graduated cum laude as a funeral director and embalmer from Community College of Baltimore County–Catonsville.
Following graduation, Seth relocated to Northern Virginia as the regional sales manager for funeral homes serving the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
It was in this capacity that he gained enormous exposure helping families of diverse cultural, religious and economic backgrounds. Intent on expanding his professional scope, he transferred to San Diego, California and subsequently Scottsdale, Arizona, where he developed similarly structured teams of service.
In 2011, Seth joined the Dignity Memorial® team. Our team's support of innovative ideas and giving back to the community were principles that especially appealed to him. He also found the storied history of Earl and Thelma Hodges inspiring.
