Meet Our Staff
Michael Humphrey - started with us as a co-op student from our local high school at the age of 17 and quickly showed signs of sincere interest in funeral service. Mike went on to work part time until he completed high school and in 1985 entered Humber College in Toronto in the Funeral Service program. Mike returned to us to do his in-service training and has remained with us since, receiving his funeral director's license in 1987. Mike's attention to detail and his "obsession" with cleanliness have made him invaluable to us. Mike assumes all the duties of a funeral director, dealing with families, in arranging and pre-arranging funerals and is a meticulous embalmer, who has developed a wonderful merge between art and science. That same attention to detail is also apparent with his maintenance work in and outside the funeral home and is becoming renowned with his gardening abilites as well. Mike is active in the Kinsmen Club of Picton, where he has served as past president. Mike prides himself as our "idea man" and his enthusiasm and pride in his work have made him valuable to all of us.
Benjamin Ens Benjamin received his Funeral Director's license in 1996. He apprenticed at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home in Toronto and continued his career there as a licensed Funeral Director until 2006. Benjamin and his family decided to move to 'The County' in 2006 when he decided to assume a career in Real Estate. After a couple of years Ben realized he missed the Funeral Industry and accepted a position at Whattam's. We are delighted that Ben has decided to continue his career in Funeral Service and has chosen Whattam's to resume this career. Benjamin's wife Heather, their daughter Elise and their son Thomas live in East Lake and enjoy family outings, particularly to the Sandbanks and hiking. Benjamin enjoys old movies, is an accomplished painter and plays guitar. The Ens family are delighted to call The County their home and enjoy being part of the Emmanuel Baptist Church congregation.
