Our Heritage

Since our founding, the guiding principle of Squamish Funeral Chapel & Crematorium Ltd. has been the commitment to treating each family who comes to us as our own. With sincerity, pride, and dedication, we are committed to this time-honored tradition.Don & Jesse McKenzie

Our Family, The McKenzie Family, has been in the Funeral Profession since 1946 with Don McKenzie working at several funeral homes in Vancouver and West Vancouver.  Don & Jessie 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 14 answering phones and helping his Dad on services. George then went on to B.C.I.T. where he received his Diploma & License as a Funeral Director & Licensed Embalmer and received the "Professionalism Award" for his class year.

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.

Whether you have an immediate need for our services or you wish to begin pre-planning your funeral arrangement, call us. We will be proud to serve you.

George & Mildred McKenzie bring their own special personalized service to families. They believe a funeral is similar to other ceremonies in our lives. Like a graduation ceremony, a wedding, a baptism, a funeral is a rite of passage by which we recognize an important event that distinguishes our lives. 

Every one of us in unique in our own special way, each relationship we share is different in some small way.   All of these characteristics, whether it be funny, compassionate, hardworking, annoying, loving and a zest for life; is what George & Mildred try to bring to each funeral or gathering, and you can often hear them saying;

"No two people are alike,

so no two funerals should be the same"

 

George & Mildred want families to know that they do more than just take care of their loved ones with dignity and respect.  They try to be a resource, the community can look to for guidance and help in difficult situations.

George & Mildred have five children and are very involved in their community with George being active with the Rotary Club, The Squamish Hospital Foundation Committee, The Masonic Lodge; George also plays the trumpet in a 10 piece horn band that plays at various fundraisers throughout the Sea to Sky & Lower Mainland. Mildred served on the Board of Directors for the BC Funeral Service Association for 10 years and enjoys spending time with her children. The McKenzie Family also enjoys showing / competing / breeding quarter horses - and families come daily to their barn property to visit and see the horses.
