|Brian J. Warner, Funeral Director - Executive Director - N.J. Lic# 4587|
Office Phone: 973-779-4664
Brian has been a licensed Funeral Director since 1993; beginning his career, at the Edwards-Dowdle Funeral Home in Dobbs Ferry, New York. Here he worked as a full time Funeral Director and Embalmer from 1991 to 2000, and has maintained a working relationship to this day.
In October of 2000, Brian left full time employment of the funeral business, so that he could devote time to the birth of his twin daughters'; which didn't quite work out the way he planned. He began working for Charabot and Co., Inc., a French owned, Raw Materials company. Within a few months, he had been through the ranks of the company; and ended up selling raw materials that are used in the fragrance and flavor industries. He spent the next five years, traveling the United States and around the world for the company. In 2005, Brian left the company after a partial corporate sale.
Ultimately, Brian, never really left the funeral business. His heart just was not in any other type of work. So in October of 2003, Brian decided to get his New Jersey license, so that he could broaden his field of service.
In October of 2003, Brian completed the necessary requirements for licensing in New Jersey and successfully passed his State Board Examination, and on November 13th, 2003, became licensed in New Jersey.
Brian is married to Deb Warner; and and is the proud father of three children. Alexys, Barbara and Robert.
In April of 2009; Brian was re-acquainted with the Wozniak family; having met them years earlier. It was in 2009 that the Wozniak family, had reached a crossroad. After fifty plus years of being on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it was getting to be too much for the family. With Brian's assistance, both the Warner's and the Wozniak's have been able to come together to forge a new relationship. Now, after two years of working closely together, the families have formed a formal relationship, and are turning over a majority of the daily responsibilities to Brian.
On February 17th, 2011 the Warner-Wozniak Funeral Service, will officially be launched. With Brian taking over the day to day activities and responsibilities of the Funeral Home, the Wozniak's will now have more time to travel and take advantage of some well deserved rest and relaxation.
