Our Valued Staff

  • Scott Bernard

    Scott Bernard, Funeral Director and Owner

    After working for over 10 years in Corporate Finance and Operational Support roles for large publicly traded conglomerates of funeral homes and cemeteries, I left the corporate world in pursuit of opening a state of the art funeral home to provide exceptional and compassionate care at an affordable cost. In 2013 I began my journey by enrolling in mortuary school to become a licensed funeral director and business owner which has allowed me to better serve families who are facing one of the most difficult times of their lives. In addition to being a licensed funeral director, I hold a Bachelors of Business Administration and Masters of Business Administration, both with a concentration in Finance. My vision was to modify the traditional funeral home model to one that has lower overhead expenses allowing us to pass those savings on to grieving families. Gateway Funerals and Cremation is able to provide the very best level of service at a significantly lower cost than many funeral homes. My goal is to help grieving families through one of the most difficult times of their lives without creating a financial burden and doing so with the utmost dignity and respect.
