For four generations, the Moles team has dedicated itself to “Caring For All Families As We Would Our Own.” Our seven core values guide us in how we relate to families, our community, and each other. Central to each value is our goal of actively listening without formulating a response, then responding in a thoughtful way.

Director of Family Services, Greenacres Memorial Park
Joining Moles in 2001, and after assisting a family suffering with the loss of a loved one, Michael realized immediately he had found his calling. Combining a passion to serve those in need of cemetery arrangements at the worst time in their lives along with the opportunity to serve others planning their own wishes for the future; both farewell tributes (aka funeral/cremation arrangements) and memorialization (aka memorial headstones and cemetery arrangements), has proven to be the most fulfilling of career choices. Moles Farewell Tributes provides Michael with the freedom and continued encouragement to exercise degrees in business administration (MBA) and marketing to create and oversee the development of new gardens at the company’s cemetery; Greenacres Memorial Park, memorialization offerings and customized farewell tributes. Through ongoing training and staff development Michael enjoys sharing his knowledge and years of experience to help and join his fellow team members provide every family served with the caring and professional attention they deserve and value in funeral care.
