Dan Baxter

Funeral Director Apprentice

Dan was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba before moving to the west coast with his family at a very young age. Upon graduation from University of BC with a degree in engineering, he began officer training with the Canadian Armed Forces in which he served for 5 years including 3½ years under NATO command in Germany. Upon release from the military, he joined the family fire safety and security business where he worked primarily in customer service. This was followed by 12 years consulting for various business clients. During a six-month stint with a private funeral and cemetery provider, Dan discovered a profession where he could have a lasting impact on the clients he served. This led to his decision to seek licensing as a Funeral Director. In 2020, he was awarded an academic scholarship by the Funeral Service Foundation. Dan and his wife, Marina, have been married for 35 years. They have 4 adult children.
