My name is Ian Kirkwood, I am 67 Years young and I am married and have two adult children. My role with Holy Cross Funerals is Mortuary Technician/ Funeral Assistant and I have been with Holy Cross since its infancy 12 years ago.
I was encouraged to join Holy Cross by Phillip Novella the Manager, a move I have never regretted. It allowed me to serve families when grieving at the loss of a loved one with compassion, understanding and professionalism, together with grounding in my personal faith.
I am proud of the friendship to be associated with colleagues who demonstrate a caring, loving and professional manner as I endeavour to portray.
I have since retired from full time to casual employment, but I still greatly enjoy the association of meeting and serving families at funerals.
A work commitment I hope to carry on for many years.
