The mark of excellence: Certified Funeral Service Practitioner

Each of the funeral directors listed has earned the designation of Certified Funeral Service Practitioner from the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice, Inc.

A select few have distinguished themselves among their peers within the funeral service profession as they continue their education to exceed the highest standards of care. This achievement is especially notable because they have voluntarily elected to participate in quality educational and service opportunities that far surpass what the funeral service licensing board in their state requires.
