Pre-Planning Funeral Director
Jeff was born and raised on a farm in Chatham-Kent, formerly Orford Township. While graduating from Ridgetown District High School, he was introduced to funeral service with a summer job at McKinlay’s in 1989 and 1990.
Jeff has been a licensed funeral director since 1994 and after a few years in Toronto and Orillia, made his way back home and to McKinlay’s in 2006 to take on the role as pre-planning director with the funeral homes. He and his wife Susan live in Ridgetown and homeschool their three sons: Cameron, Joel, and Noah.
After becoming a Christian in 2002, Jeff’s call and passion is to herald the Gospel at every opportunity and to equip average, everyday Christ-followers to more faithfully do the work of an evangelist. He faithfully serves from their church, Harvest Bible Chapel – London and as Vice President of The Cross Current ministry.
Apart from serving families in the local communities of Chatham-Kent at the funeral home and sharing the Gospel of Jesus through ministry, spending time with his wife and family is where the rest of his time is enjoyed.
