Roddy McKinnon

Canterbury born and bred, Roddy is a loyal supporter of our great region.

After many years spent in the UK and Canada, in which he and his wife Jane created and operated successful businesses, he eventually found his way home to be closer to family and friends. The desire to raise his two beautiful daughters and one son in the ‘Mainland’ was too much to resist.

Part of the Alumni of the University of Canterbury, Roddy’s background, education and business experience has given him a commitment to strive for innovation and excellence within Canterbury Christian Funeral Services.

His goal is to ensure each family has the satisfaction of creating an individual funeral service for their loved one and with our careful watch over every detail will help ensure CCFS is of true service to our community.
