Tom DeCantis has been in funeral service since 1985. He is an honors graduate of San Francisco College of Mortuary Science in California. During college, he began his career at a local funeral home/cemetery combination in Berkeley, CA.

After graduation, Tom returned to Virginia, where he served his apprenticeship, and then received his license to practice Funeral Service over 35 years ago. After this, many of his skills were developed at a reputable firm in the northern Shenandoah Valley, under the direct supervision of the owner, who was a fourth-generation funeral director. In the late 90's, Tom relocated to Virginia Beach, where he was given the privilege of joining Altmeyer Funeral Homes, as a Director/Manager of the Virginia Beach location. After serving in Virginia Beach for several years, Tom moved back to Northern Virginia. He returned to the Altmeyer Organization over 13 years ago. He currently serves as Regional Vice President, overseeing our North Carolina operations in Jacksonville, Wilmington, Hendersonville and Greensboro.
