He is a licensed funeral director and embalmer in both NC and SC, as well as a licensed insurance agent in NC. Over the last 28 years, Rob has gained a distinct passion for the funeral business and serving others. “Taking care of families at one of the most difficult times in their lives is a great honor. I feel that it is a sacred task which should not be taken lightly and one must sincerely provide the highest quality of service and respect.”
Rob not only has dedication in serving families during their times of loss, but he also is an advocate for preplanning. His belief is “when a person makes their own final arrangements they are less likely to emotional spend and they have the peace of mind knowing they took care of their family until the very end.”
