  • Kevin Charles Lewis

    General Manager

    Kevin was born and raised in Fredericton, New Brunswick. After spending time helping out at a local funeral home in high school, he decided to pursue a career in funeral services and graduated from Kingstec in Kentville, Nova Scotia, in 1998. Kevin began his career in New Brunswick, working in many funeral homes throughout the province. In 2001 an opportunity brought him to British Columbia and landed him first in Trail and then in Victoria. Throughout his career Kevin has been honoured to serve thousands of families and his ongoing passion continues; providing compassionate, personalized service to every family he meets. Kevin is always amazed at the creativity and ideas of each family and finds it rewarding to make those ideas reality in each planned service. When Kevin is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters and their dog, Chloe. Throughout the year you may see Kevin around town at the hockey rink or attending dance performances, cheering on his daughters. When they find time, Kevin and his family enjoy camping, spending time outdoors and traveling to explore new places.

He is inspired by Mahatma Gandhi, who said, "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."
