Shortly after graduating from mortuary school, Shane experienced a life changing event when his twenty-four-year-old daughter, Felicity, passed away suddenly of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. In honor of his daughter, Shane decided to spend the rest of his life helping families who have lost loved ones be able to say goodbye; even in cases of traumatic injuries that most embalmers would deem too severe to restore. Combining his hobby and experience in special effects makeup techniques with restorative art was an excellent starting point but Shane wanted to develop his expertise beyond the current “norms”. Shane attended training classes at the prestigious Fountain National Academy of Professional Embalming Skills, allowing him to become the Huntington-Ashland-Ironton Tri-State’s most respected Post-Mortem Reconstructive Surgery Specialist. He is a tireless learner and teacher who enjoys sharing his knowledge and skills with his fellow embalmers and anyone who is interested in the funeral profession. In his various seminars, he stresses the importance of having a dedication to educating on the value of open casket viewing as well as technical expertise. In addition to his mortuary education, he is also a skilled businessman and holds a BA in Management from Ottawa University.
