Again, according to the press release, “Gary Klontz has been in the funeral profession for more than 50 years serving the Auburn and Tacoma communities. After starting his career in Tacoma, Gary returned to his home town, Auburn, WA, and purchased a funeral home with his brother-in-law. They sold their business in 1988 and Gary continued to work in funeral management until 2004, when he opened Klontz Funeral Home and Cremation Services. “
