Describe your business.  

We offer compassionate cremation services for family pets 300 pounds or less, with free pick-up service at your home or your vet’s office. 

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?

I was a paperboy with two different companies. Being busy kept me out of trouble, and I learned that having my own money gave me a lot of freedom.

How are you involved with both the community and your customer?

I work with a local K9 organization that trains dogs for veterans returning home with war-related problems. I’m also organizing a nonprofit called “Robin Hoods” and am planning a Soap Box Derby  in Lincoln on September 23-24 for boys and girls ages 8-17.

Why is your staff the best in the business?

The general manager and I love animals, and our mission is to provide excellent customer service and satisfaction. We recognize that losing a pet is a very emotional time in a family’s life.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

My three children—all successfully married, working and contributing to society—and seven grandchildren (with another one on the way), who are all either in school or working.

Where do you go when the going gets tough?

Church—to sit for a period of time and meditate.

What’s your biggest job perk?

Having enough money to do things, and helping other people that don’t have the resources to do it.

If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?

Ronald Reagan. He was my hero and a great family man.

Do you know that our editorial is not paid for, nor can it be purchased?
In fact, our Introducing and Eat & Drink section reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Megan Wiskus at Once we determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
