"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

Helen Keller

Everest of Thunder Bay, Caring when you need it most.


   For family-owned funeral homes like ours, service is a way of life.  For nearly 135 years, the Gardiner family has been dedicated to caring for your family at one of the most difficult times in your lives. 

   Recently another local funeral home has been taken over by a large corporation that owns cemeteries and funeral homes across Canada, with head offices located in Toronto.

   Regardless of the product they are selling, large corporations have one purpose only - to generate profits to boost their share prices on the stock market, and to satisfy their shareholders.   For them it's about increasing sales and answering to accountants at head office - it's not about service to grieving families.

   My staff and I are here to provide comfort and service to your family, and in turn we are able to provide for our own families.

   If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call me.  Unlike the big corporations, I answer to you.


John-Bryan Gardiner,
President, Senior Funeral Director and Managing Partner,
Everest of Thunder Bay.


    We are pleased to provide the "Book of Memories" to you and the families we are honoured to serve. Obituaries, photographs, funeral details, donations, etc... are all listed here for both the current services and past funerals entrusted to our firm since January 1, 2001. 
    For many services since early 2011, you will also be able to view the funeral or vigil prayers via our webcasting service in our Book of Memories.
   If you are unable to visit the funeral home, or if there is not a service planned, you can still be with the family in thought by signing the online guest book. Using the online condolences, you can also share special thoughts, messages, photos, and your memorable recollections about the deceased. You can also place a memorial donation, from the convenience of your home or office computer.

Thank you for joining us today.

John-Bryan Gardiner
President, Managing Partner
