Values

We understand that life is different for everyone and each person's life is special. For this reason, our family is committed to help you through special memorials and through helping family and friends celebrate special moments at Metropolitan Funeral Service.

Metropolitan Funeral Service was established in 1966 and has remained family owned and operated to preserve the quality and unique nature of our services. I, Kenneth Alexander, am the second generation to uphold the family tradition to provide comfort and support during the loss of a loved one through Metropolitan Funeral Service.

We understand the despair and grief of loss, which is why we provide a unique one-stop funeral service that offers total commitment to you, true family values, pre-planning, and so much more.

Kenneth AlexanderAt Metropolitan Funeral Service, I, Kenneth Alexander, the President and CEO, will oversee all details associated with a funeral service and will alleviate as many of the burdens and responsibilities family members will encounter when planning a funeral service for their love one. During our initial meeting, I will provide an overview of our services and the options we have available to you.

I will also give you a tour of our facilities and an overview of Metropolitan Funeral Service's family history. I am the second generation of our family to own and operate Metropolitan Funeral Service and uphold our strong family values. I received formal training from John Tyler Community College, Old Dominion University and Norwich University and hold A.A.S., B.S. and M.A. degrees. Along with my formal training I have actively participated in the Virginia Morticians Association, the Norfolk Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association, Tidewater Funeral Directors Association and Funeral Directors & Morticians Association of North Carolina. My family provided me with the strong family values that Donna and I share and bring to Metropolitan Funeral Service.

Donna Alexander is the General manager and is a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer. She earned an Associate Degree from John Tyler Community College and a Bacholers Degree from Norfolk State University. Donna upholds the Metropolitan Funeral Service tradition of commitment, quality, security, responsibility, high family values and stability.

The Alexander Family"Train up a child in the way
he should go, and when he is old,
he will not depart from it."
