Sylvan Lake Funeral Home has been serving the families of Central Alberta from the same location in picturesque Sylvan Lake for more than 80 years.
Over many years, Sylvan Lake Funeral Home has seen several different owners: the Duffields, the Buchanans and the Flinn family since 1985.
Ed Stevenson has been the manager since 1987 when he moved to Alberta with his family from Newfoundland. Ed is married to Heather and has two sons David and Michael and two grandchildren.
Ed has been active in the community since arriving in Sylvan Lake, serving on several boards such as the Canadian Red Cross, The Royal Canadian Legion- Sylvan Lake Branch and the Sylvan Lake Community Partners Association. He is always regarded highly for his knowledge on the projects he takes interest in.
