Randy Mugford 
Owner & Managing Director

Randy Mugford, originally from Newfoundland, moved to the Orangeville area with his family in 1988. As a teenager, he attended O.D.S.S. where he graduated with honours, while working part-time in a local funeral establishment. He continued his post-secondary education by attending college and obtained a degree in Recreation Leadership, specializing in the field of Persons with Disabilities. Randy’s passion for helping others, led him to focus on becoming a licensed funeral director, enrolling at Humber College, where he graduated and was successfully licensed by the Board of Funeral Services. Randy continued his work in the funeral industry while dedicating his down time to serving his community as a volunteer fire fighter for the Orangeville Fire Department. With 17+ years as volunteer fire fighter and 20+ year in the Funeral Industry, this gave Randy the experience needed to truly help individuals at the most difficult times in their lives. He is supported by his wife of 23 years, Donna Kenney-Mugford and their three beautiful daughters, Rachel, Jordyn and Reese. ​
