Ed J. Swarnes-Velasco

Funeral Arranger

Email: EddieS.SML@gmail.com

Ed has over 20 years of experience as an accomplished and professional Funeral Director serving families in the St. Louis area.  After taking a leave of absence and relocating to New York, Ed began a new career in hospitality, which allowed him to serve people in a different way. When the pandemic began, his life changed and he began assisting a friend who owned a funeral home in New York during the toughest times in our country’s darkest days.  While working there, Ed realized that where he belonged is assisting families as a Funeral Arranger. So, in the fall of 2020 and as a result of the pandemic, Ed decided to move across the country with his partner to be closer to family and joined Sacramento Memorial Lawn as a Funeral Arranger and began assisting families of the Sacramento area.

When Ed isn’t at work, he and his partner enjoy traveling and camping in the great outdoors. They are looking forward to now adding a new puppy to their family very soon.
