“It’s been a gratifying 10 years at Catholic Cemeteries.  There’s such satisfaction and fulfillment in helping people and families in times of need.  Families have said to me, “…much easier than I thought,” and for me, “…it’s been more rewarding than I could have imagined.”  In my spare time, I enjoy football, kayaking, and jet skiing.

Mike Attea

“I was raised Catholic, attended Catholic schools and had a brother who was a Catholic priest.  He passed away when he was 42, which gave me a greater appreciation for those who have lost someone.  My medical background has made me a natural caregiver, and my counseling is a direct extension of that.  I love my job, whether it is being with people at a difficult time, helping to solve a problem, or presenting information in a lighthearted way in order to ease the anxieties of funeral planning.”
Jane Mozer

“Life is about much more than financial rewards, as I had come to find out 27 years ago, when I joined Catholic Cemeteries, as a Family Counselor. The difference I make in people’s lives, helping them at one of the most difficult times in their life, is exactly the right balance of life and rewarding work.   To ease a burden, provide a little relief, or to bring even a smile to the families I have assisted over the years, continues to fill my heart.”

Dave Davidzik

“My job as a Family Service Counselor allows me the daily opportunity to service my community, and the families within it.  I consider that a tremendous gift.   I have been a member and past Grand Knight (Knights of Columbus-Kenmore Council), as well as Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of, The Christmas Bash for Kids.  I am a proud father, happily married man, and a devoted local sports fan (although, at times it is a very trying).”

Mike Archambault 

“As a Family Services Counselor, I visit families, such as yours, to explain the services offered by Catholic Cemeteries on Catholic burial tradition.  Educating people about their choices for prearrangement services, as well as for those who have an immediate family need, is very rewarding.  Even though it is sometimes difficult to discuss, I really enjoy seeing the family when the process is complete and the comfort and relief they feel.”
