Mark McKay always had a vision, and that is to serve mankind with all of his heart. Prior to the mortuary business, McKay was employed as a surgical nurse for over 12 years at St. Francis Medical Center in Los Angeles. He obtained numerous achievements of recognition for the care that he gave to patients.

Always desiring to hone his entrepreneurial skills, Mark sought to explore the janitorial industry as an additional source of income during the recession period of the Reagan Administration. As his knowledge and experience increased, McKay was able to negotiate lucrative corporate, government and state funded accounts. The expanding success of the business allowed him to employ over 30 employees. He faithfully mentored his employees, showing extreme dedication and motivating many of them to start their own businesses.

Mark McKay later accepted a position with SCI, Service Corporation International, the largest end-of-life arrangements and services provider in the U.S. He provided compassion for families and assisted them as they struggled to obtain dignified and quality funeral services for their loved ones. Witnessing this task daily was an overwhelming feat for McKay. However, it was also a defining moment in his life, as he realized his true passion and calling. McKay comments, “There is no greater gift than to be of service to mankind”. In 2003, Mark McKay opened his first mortuary with monies saved from his janitorial business. He and his wife Robin, have since established over five successful locations serving families throughout Southern California. They are committed to providing quality services at affordable costs, having many of their competitors to follow suit. McKay Mortuary’s mantra is, “No family will ever be turned away due to a lack of funds.” Mark and Robin McKay have been happily married for over 29 years, and have raised five successful children.

McKays Mortuary, an outstanding institution as distinctive as its name. Operated with Christian ethics, McKays Mortuary maintains great value in serving others with dignity.
