Our History

George & Mildred McKenzie: Present OwnersHave you Heard Our Story?

Our family, "The McKenzie Family", have been in the Funeral Profession since 1946 with Don McKenzie working at various funeral homes in Vancouver & West Vancouver.

Don met Jessie and married in 1948. In 1968 they were given the opportunity to purchase Hollyburn Funeral Home in West Vancouver from the "Walsh" family. As in true family funeral home tradition, George McKenzie (eldest son of Don & Jessie) began working at Hollyburn at the age of fourteen answering phones and helping his dad on services. George then went to B.C.I.T where he received his Diploma & License as a Funeral Director & Licensed Embalmer. He also received the "Professionalism Award" for his class.

In 1988, George & Mildred bought Squamish Funeral Chapel & installed their own crematorium to service both Hollyburn & the Sea to Sky Corridor.

After the passing of Don & Jessie McKenzie, George & Mildred separated from Hollyburn Funeral Home in 1995. Mildred & George continued to serve families on the North Shore and after several requests from families and clergy, decided to open an office in West Vancouver, McKenzie Funeral Services. They have brought their own special personalized service back to the North Shore and Lower Mainland. They believe a funeral is similar to other ceremonies in our lives. Like a graduation ceremony, a wedding, or baptism a funeral is a rite of passage by which we recognize an important event that distinguishes our lives.

 

You can often hear them saying:

"No two people are alike, so no two funerals should be the same"

In recent years, we've gathered together a staff of highly qualified and deeply caring individuals to assist us in continuing the funeral home's mission of providing excellence in service to families in their time of need.

Our reputation for providing the highest quality of service grew, and today we are privileged to serve hundreds of area families each year.
