I am the second generation owner of York Funeral Home, which has been an important part of the Fredericton North community since its establishment in 1979. Following in my father's footsteps and with many thanks to the families we have served over the years, we have built a good reputation in the Fredericton and surrounding area as a caring family business.
Following graduation from Fredericton High School in 1982, I began my training and apprenticeship as a funeral director and I have been a Licensed Funeral Director since 1985. I continue to be an active participant in the funeral service industry,advocating for the highest service standards as a board member of the New Brunswick Funeral Directors and Embalmers Board. I was honoured in 2005 by my peers on the New Brunswick Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association by being nominated to represent New Brunswick at the national level with The Funeral Service Association of Canada. From 2006 - 2010, I chaired the National Education Committee and from 2011 - 2012, I was the elected President of the Funeral Service Association of Canada. My participation at both provincial and national levels of the funeral industry assures the families who come to us that they will receive the highest quality of service and care from my entire staff at York Funeral Home.
On a personal level, my inspiration and support come from my family: Harmony, Doug, Kayla, Tom, Maggie and my wife Suzanne. I am very proud to have been part of the coaching staff at St. Thomas University, first as Assistant Coach of the STU Men’s Basketball team for fifteen years and then as the team’s Head Coach from 2016 - 2019. Coaching young adults and knowing you are making a positive difference in their athletic and personal lives has been a privilege I will continue to cherish.
My name is Steven Wallace, I live in the community of Kingsley just outside of Fredericton. I have lived there and interacted with the people through church and other community events. I graduated from Fredericton High School in 1991. I have been an employee with York Funeral Home for the past three years where I have enjoyed interacting with the public on a daily basis. I have completed the Funeral Service program at the Nova Scotia Community College in Kentville, Nova Scotia.
After growing up in Springhill, NS, I moved to Fredericton in 1995 to attend the University of New Brunswick. Prior to my employment with York Funeral Home, I worked in public service positions including retail management, private security services and public computer access programs.
In 2007 I came to York to work as a Funeral Director's Assistant. That same year I enrolled with the Canadian College of Funeral Service and spent the next two years studying to become a Funeral Director and Embalmer. I graduated and was licensed in 2009.
My family and I currently live in Fredericton but in addition to my responsibilities with York Funeral Home, I am the primary Funeral Director at our Miramichi Valley Funeral Home location in New Bandon, NB.
I grew up on PEI, then moved to Fredericton with my husband, Paul in 1997. Paul and I are active at Christ Central Church. I completed the Funeral and Allied Health Services Program at Kingstec, Kentiville, NS in 2005.
Following in the footsteps of my grandfather, father and uncle, I am a third generation Funeral Director. I went to St. Thomas in 2008 where I played on their basketball team. I am currently attended the Canadian College of Funeral Services and graduate in 2014. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and just relaxing at home. I also am an assistant coach of the St. Thomas University Basketball team.
I have been part of the York and Miramichi Valley Funeral Home family since 2006. I grew up on the Miramichi where I developed a keen interest for salmon fishing. Like many other Maritimers, I travelled West, spending over a decade in the Northwest and Yukon Territories. Being far from home and all things familiar, I quickly realized the importance of family. I am happy that I made the decision to move back home, where I am involved in my community and my church. I still love fishing, but now, my first passion is my family.
