Randy Wolfenbarger

Our company hires only the best and brightest to work in our energized environment. So, when we asked Randy if he wanted to work at the high paced ADDvantage Casket he said, “YES!” Randy has been with the Wake Forest Fire Department for 25 years… and that’s about as high energy as you can get. When he’s not at the fire station you can find him riding his motorcycle on the Blue Ridge Parkway enjoying the scenery. We welcome him to our company and the energy that he brings to our customers.

Joe Hoffman

Joe Hoffman

Welcoming Joe to the ADDvantage Casket team was easy as he already had a high work ethic and a “What else can I do for you?” attitude - two attributes we take seriously. Joe and his family are long-time Raleigh residents who believe in education: his Computer Science major in college and his sister studying for her law degree. Our customers have commented to our management team about this newest personnel addition, and it is all good.

Holly Eckhardt

Many of you will remember Holly from when her mother, Vickie Zimmerman, owned ADDvantage Casket and Holly delivered caskets to their customers. Her smile is contagious and her focus on service is first and foremost. She is anxious to connect with customers both old and new. And yes, she still operates Tie 1 On, her business that supplies beautiful funeral appropriate silk neckties and other accessories to funeral home staff members in the Carolinas and Virginia.

Brendan Handford

When you first meet Brendan, he looks like we drafted him from the NFL (he has a commanding presence)! A father of 5 children he has been the coach of his son’s football team. His real occupation is firefighter for 12 years and he enjoys it immensely. We feel fortunate to have him on the ADDvantage Team.

Calvin Fisher, Jr.

Calvin comes to us from the New Rochelle Fire Department and has always enjoyed following sports, his favorite team, the Pittsburg Steelers. Love of family is important, and Calvin shows it in his dedication to his wife and their children. On the job he can always be depended on to accommodate a customer’s request and is never too busy to stop and lend a hand.
