Our History

In the mid-1990s, a funeral director became increasingly concerned about a growing need within the Deathcare community. He decided his purpose was to fill that need. That funeral director was our Founder, Gary Darychuk. Gary founded Directors’ Choice in 1997. Over the years, we have successfully handled millions of calls, welcomed over 1000 clients, and been honored with a dozen awards. Now, more than 20 years later, we are still providing award-winning answering services to funeral homes and others in the Deathcare community all over North America.

Our Future

Directors’ Choice will continue to offer comfort and assistance to families at a time when they need it most. We will provide accurate, timely information to our clients. And we are committed to protecting tradition with a well-trained team while making investments in the best technology. This all comes together and enables us to deliver a boutique, concierge funeral call answering service that is customized to your precise requirements.
