John and his wife Sandy assumed ownership of Whitney-Ribey Funeral Home on November 1, 2011. They have two sons, Duke and Rory. After living and working in Kitchener, Sandy and John felt they wanted to raise their boys in a small town, as they both grew up in the rural community of Mount Forest. They also had a dream of owning a funeral home and are grateful to have been given the opportunity to do both in the wonderful community of Seaforth.
John grew up on a chicken farm between Mount Forest and Harriston and graduated from Norwell District Secondary School in Palmerston. In 2002 after completing an apprenticeship with Jerrett Funeral Home's in Toronto John graduated from Humber College and received his funeral directors licence. He continued working in Toronto with Ogden Funeral Home before returning home to work at England Funeral Home in Mount Forest. In 2006 John was fortunate to be given a position at Henry Walser Funeral Home in Kitchener. In November of 2011 with the support of Sandy, his mom Mary, dad Rick, mother-in-law Cathy, father-in-law Don, family, friends and mentors, John saw his dream of owning and operating a funeral home become a reality.
John understands that the Whitney-Ribey Funeral Home has provided it's surrounding community with compassionate and dignified care to the families it served and he, along with his wife Sandy will continue, as well as, expand on the exceptional service the community deserves.
