Christopher L. Fitzgerald

Funeral Director/Embalmer

Christopher came to Quesnel in 2006 to apprentice as a funeral director/embalmer at Clayton’s Funeral Directors, and has served Quesnel with compassion, humour and dedication ever since.

At the funeral home, in addition to his more typical funeral director/embalmer duties, Christopher officiates funeral services, writes eulogies, is the regular funeral DJ, does offsite audio-visual presentations and digital photo editing work, creates poetry, keeps Tranquility Gardens organized, and takes care of pretty much whatever technical or written/spoken word type of work needs to be done.

Clayton’s Funeral Directors is a very proud supporter of the P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) program and Christopher has been the “tour presenter” for Clayton’s since the program began here.
