“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others” -Gandhi  

Born and raised in Brookville, Pennsylvania, native Lance Carrier graduated from Brookville Area High School in 2015. He then attended Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  There he achieved an Associates in Specialized Business Degree, and a Diploma of Funeral Directing and Embalming, and graduated as valedictorian of his class with high honors. After that he continued on to Point Park University to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Science with a minor in Psychology for death and dying.

 During his time in Pittsburgh, Lance worked for a multitude of funeral homes and embalmers to acquire knowledge, experience, and skills to bring back to his community. That is where he began to dream and build his aspirations of a future trade service and to one day own his own funeral home to serve friends and families around the area. 

After extensive education and training, Lance returned to his hometown to pursue a career in funeral service. He moved back in the spring of 2018. After completing his year-long internship requirements, Lance then moved forward to create a trade business in the local surrounding areas in 2019. 

 He created Carrier Trade Services LLC where he worked for a multitude of funeral homes doing embalming, layouts, removals, arrangements and funerals. After almost four years of maintaining his own trade business, the opportunity of a lifetime to buy, remodel and open Carrier Funeral Home had finally arrived. He has the knowledge and skills to assist you and your family during the hardest time, while compassionately caring for and memorializing your loved one.  He understands that each family is special and has personal requests and traditions that is of the utmost importance to him.

Lance lives in Brookville, PA, and involves himself in the community in many ways.  He is a leader and positive role model and has shown this by participating and volunteering in the community. Two of the biggest organizations he has been involved in are the Boy Scouts and the Volunteer Fire Company. In Boy Scouts he earned the necessary merits to be awarded the prestigious Eagle Scout Award.  The boy scout motto also promoted the idea of doing a “Good Turn Daily”.  He continuously follows this by doing anything he can to be helpful. He feels involvement is so important and wants to give back to his community.

 He currently is a member of the Brookville Fire Company where he serves as an active member both on calls and events. He also serves as a Deputy Coroner for Jefferson County, Pennsylvania.  Lance recently completed the basic Coroner Education Course and successfully obtained his certificate. 

 He enjoys helping other people, outdoor activities such as hunting, taking walks, and especially time with his family and friends. He is the son of Jeffrey and Jacquelyn Carrier of Brookville.
