John Scanlin

Funeral Director, Manager, Owner

B.A. Psychology University of Alaska Fairbanks

Licensed Funeral Director

My name is John Scanlin and I've been serving the Pacific Northwest as a Funeral Director for the last 6 years. I grew up in the Puget Sound community and wanted to come back and serve a community that has gotten me to where I am at today.

In my free time I enjoy cinimatic adventures, Trappers Sushi, local parks, driving anywhere, and listening to books (thanks audible). I love animals with "socks". Those are when the animals feet have a different color then the majority of their coat, specifically on the feet. I have one cat named Darwin, a dog named Lava and am looking to add another to the crew in the coming year.
