About Funeral Director Tim Hutchins
Hawke's Bay born and bred, is overwhelmed with the inquiries he has been receiving about funeral planning and pre-pay funerals, since recently establishing Tim Hutchins Funerals.
These days more people are wanting to arrange their funeral and pay for it before they pass. It means they and their families can have peace of mind knowing that much of the stress and anxiety surrounding the event is minimised.
Tim is empathetic, caring and extremely professional. He is respected and seen at times of stress as "the voice of reason". He is also very humble and has the ability to quickly establish rapport with people, especially when a loved one has passed.
Tim is a solo dad and has three amazing children: Elyjah, Leilah & Shyloh. After a decade working in Samoa Tim returned back to the Bay and was employed by the Hawkes Bay District Health Board, working in the community achieving health results.
"From there I was offered an opportunity to be involved in an up and coming funeral home, and the rest is history. I have been in the funeral industry for five years, and constantly remember how privileged I am to support people and their families through some tougher times."
"Every funeral is different and we take pride in meeting the wishes of families with the highest level of professionalism, empathy and care."
