Chris Walters

Somerville Funerals Southport location manager

What do you enjoy about your job?
I have never thought of what I do as a job. I have worked in the industry since I was 20 and still have the same passion today that I did back then. The satisfaction of being able to help and care for a family through the toughest time of their life is what has kept me in the profession today.

How long have you been a location manager?
I have worked in the industry for the past 28 years. I was the General manager of our business in Canberra and worked closely with families every day. 8 years ago, I moved to Queensland to be closer to my family and have had roles from Regional to Area Manager within the business, but my heart has always been working closely with families.

What do you enjoy in your spare time?
Spending time  with my family especially my grandchildren, following their sports netball & football. My family have always been  the most important part of my life, I have seen the tragedy that loss causes and how tomorrow can be taken away so quickly with death.

Are there any special community groups you work with or support?
I have worked with many community groups over the years. Sands, Share the Dignity, Red Cross, St Vincent de Paul, SIDS, Meals on Wheels, Cancer support groups, Football, Bowls & Golf  Clubs, to name a few.

Whilst I have only been in the position for a short period, I intend to reconnect with these and many other community groups to offer support when and where required. I am proud of the support and work we do with many community groups here on the Gold Coast, and I look forward to continuing that work.

Due to the careful loving attention that Chris from Somerville gave my mum, and the professional service she offered to us all throughout the whole process. Mum felt that Chris faithfully followed dad’s wises, and the day went exactly how she envisaged, which comforted her when it was all over.
