I Graduated from Humber College, in Toronto and Simmons Institute, in Syracuse, NY. I am one of the few Canadian Funeral Directors to achieve an Associates Degree in Funeral Service Education, a License in New York State and an Award in Restorative Artistry to compliment my Ontario Funeral Director's License. I have a loving wife Catherine, a beautiful daughter Cassie and 2 step sons, Brody and Tanner.
I have served as the Chair of the Brantford Police Services Board, a past member of the board of directors with the Chamber of Commerce, the Kiwanis Club (25+ years) of Brantford, the Brantford General Hospital Foundation, Nova Vita Women's Shelter, the Children's Aid Foundation Board and many more. Serving my community is my passion.
I've been a member of the Brantford Golf & Country Club, Golf North, Burford Golf Course, Northridge & Arrowdale Municipal Golf Courses. When time permits you may find me on a golf course with friends or playing snooker or pool. I take part in many Brantford based team sports leagues, such as Brant County Snooker League (many years as President or Vice President), 8 ball and 9 ball.

Jeff Glaves, Funeral Director (Retired/Unavailable)
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 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.
** Jeff has left the family business to pursue his own new goals. We wish him the best in his future endeavors !
