Jeff Glaves, Funeral Director
I grew up in Brantford, married my lovely wife Carrie in 1997, and have 3 amazing grown children.
I graduated from both Humber College, in Toronto and Simmons Institute, in Syracuse, N.Y., completing successfully both the National Board Examinations for the United States and the Ontario Board of Funeral Services Examinations. I have volunteered with many different charitable organizations in the Brantford area, and I have worked in several different businesses reaching from Northern Ontario to Southern Maryland. I returned home to work in the family business in January, 1995, where, with my brothers and sisters, I have continued to develop new, innovative services to provide to our funeral families and the public.

I have always called Brantford my home, and in 2005 I set roots of my own down when I married my amazing wife Julianna Suppa. Together we have one lovely and spirited daughter.
I am graduate of Humber College Culinary Management Program (2004) and Funeral Service Education Program (2006). I became licensed by the Board of Funeral Services in 2007 and started, and continue, my career right here in Brantford with the Glaves Family.
Since then I have had the opportunity to help countless families in our community. This continues to be a great source of personal and professional satisfaction to know that I am making a difference in the lives of my neighbours.
