    Jim P Brosnan

    Funeral Director

    Jim has been serving in various positions with our funeral home since 1992. Originally from Erie, Pennsylvania, Jim now resides in Wilmington, North Carolina.

    Growing up, Jim liked science, art and history and had a great desire to help people, all which led him to pursue a place in the funeral industry. He feels that his path in funeral service is not just a career but a calling. Believing in the importance of pre-planning conversations, Jim says, “Families should communicate with each other about their final wishes so they can leave their family with the peace of mind that they are doing the right thing."
