Coffs funeral director awarded
IT’S not everyone’s cup of tea, but the funeral industry has been Keith Logue’s bread and butter most of his life.
Mr Logue, 79, is still at the top of his game and has just brought home an excellence award from the Funeral Directors’ Association of NSW conference.
It’s the latest in a string of acknowledgements for the Coffs Harbour funeral director and his family firm.
“It’s the top award our association has and we’re thrilled to get it,” Mr Logue said.
“It is good to see a local business such as Keith Logue and Sons, which has been caring for families of Coffs Harbour and surrounding areas for the past 43 years, be recognised on several occasions for its high quality of service.
“People trust you with their most treasured possession, their loved one. They’ve got the confidence to hand that loved one into your care. It’s a big thing that people give you that trust.”
Mr Logue has been involved in the funeral industry for more than 60 years – in the late 1940s with his dad and two brothers he started the funeral firm H. Logue and Sons in Wellington in the state’s Central West.
He was a foundation member of the Funeral Directors’ Association of NSW in 1976 and has served continually as a committee member since.
“I’ve got hundreds of thank you letters from people for our professionalism,” Mr Logue said.
