Thank you to the Evan J. Strong team. My beloved mom’s funeral was nothing short of perfect. I received so many compliments from guests about the beautiful service. Individually, Nicole was professional and compassionate. The aftercare with Kelly was particularly helpful because I was in a fog of grief, as the executrix, and her efficiency /knowledge took a weight off my shoulders.

Evan J. Strong Funeral Services, was very good to us; cordial, yet respectful.
Nichole, was helpful as was Kelly. We recognize that it can also be a difficult business for these folks to be in as to the nature of the business.
It is a service that is needed, but is also one that tact and dignity is required and the staff and personnel Of Evan J. Strong have managed to navigate it well.
Thankyou for the friendliness and genuine care to the fine folks at Evan J. Strong. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone. They have been fair and accommodating with our family at this time, and we certainly appreciate it.

Kurtis and the Evan Strong team are exceptional as usual. They kept us safe while driving the winter conditions to the cemetery by providing Limo's exclusive for the family.
Everything was perfect for my sisters funeral as if she would have planned herself. My family is grateful,.

Evan, Kurtis, Kelly, Geriann and Amber were professional, caring and responsive to our requests. We were guided through a selection process that was clearly laid out in an informative package and then provided us a service that exceeded all of our expectations. Kelly was exceptionally helpful in preparing the final government documentation and guiding us through the filing process. I would strongly recommend this family owned business to anyone requiring funeral services.

I am so thankful that a wise relation referred us to Evan J Strong.
Dealing with my husband passing away after being ill for 18 months was very difficult. Having Rachel walk us through the daunting paper work including forms for my university age daughter, survivor benefits, etc. was such a support. Marni, the office administrator was so patient regarding all the changes I kept making with the obituary after I submitted it. Not only are their fees reasonable relative to other establishments but their professionalism and understanding staff truly was evident. Now I am always happy to see when people choose Evan J Strong and will definitely share my positive experience with others.

We had been interviewing various funeral homes last week to do the planning for our loved one.. Evan Strong was the last place we visited. As soon as we met Kurtis we knew, this was the individual who we wanted to take care of our loved one. He was sensitive, kind and most importantly very informative. The price was the best price we had found during our research. Don't think that a lower price means less service, in this case less meant more, way more.!

The funeral director and the attendants looked after us at the funeral and burial of my brother. I was so impressed at everything that they did. They were all pleasant, kind, respectful and reverent all the time. I think that to the majority of the visitors and family, your team was invisible.
Kurtis made sure that we had every question answered before we could think of it.
I was so impressed with the group in every way

It's awkward commenting on a Funeral service because it's so personal. That's likely why I was so impressed with EJS is because they treated every detail so personally.

My late Mother, Theresa Koch, volunteered for 20 years at her church. In that time, she worked with all of the Funeral services in Calgary. She was so impressed with Evan Strong's individual attention to detail and execution that she specified Evan J Strong to handle her services to her family and in her will.

When the time came, we contacted EJS, as instructed. During this difficult and emotional time, EJS, and specifically Kurtis, were a rock of support and information. They listened to our requests and put together a tender and fitting ceremony. We always felt like part of the process and they arranged and delivered the farewell that my Mom had wanted.

I found their services, options and pricing to be excellent.
My sincerest appreciation and Thanks to Kurtis, Evan and the entire family at Evan Strong for helping carry the load at a very difficult time .

My initial telephone conversation with Kurtis was very helpful and informative. He provided me with all of the information that I needed and when I asked him for the address, I was a little shocked that it was in Calgary as I thought I had selected a place in Airdrie. I was going to change my mind but my daughter said Just go for it as we had already provided and receive the information that we needed. I am so glad that we made that choice. Upon meeting Kurtis personally we felt very relaxed. They had a beautiful comfort dog which we all loved. All of the arrangements were made quickly with a lot of personal interaction with Kurtis. He made it a very good experience for us . On our second visit again it was a very good experience for us Kurtis had everything ready for us. The cost was unbelievable. It did not take our life savings.
Thank you Kurtis and staff for looking after us so well.

My most sincere condolences to Carol and the Pilon family. Larry was a kind, compassionate and caring person. He will be sadly missed by his many UCT Brothers and Sisters in Atlantic Canada. May he rest in Peace.

The "family" at Evan Strong were amazing. I was trying to deal with this crisis from far away and they made it happen. I can't say enough about the support, compassion and professionalism I received from this group of dedicated individuals. They helped to make adjustments mid stream and am thankful for all their help. The feedback I received from those that attended the service was only positive. Thank you for making the process so much easier.

Frequently Asked Questions about Funerals

What are the options concerning the time of a service?

While most services are held in the morning or afternoon, some families are now choosing to have services held in the evening hours for the convenience of family and friends. This enables more people to attend the service who otherwise might be unable to be excused from their place of employment during the day.
