Licensed Funeral DirectorRead Bio
Robin Christopherson has been a licensed Funeral Director for more than 32 years. He joined the Miller-Jones family in June 2004, and serves our families in Hemet. Robin says, "Working in funeral service is a noble profession dedicated to service to others. With clergy and others, funeral directors help families during one of life's most difficult trials. No money can buy the personal satisfaction one feels when a family returns to express their thanks for your caring attention to their needs. At Miller-Jones, I have the privilege of working with the "A-team" where Caring and Quality are Number One."
Robin and Donna, his wife, moved to the Inland Empire in July 2003. He shared these feelings about their move, "We love our new home and the friends that we are making. There have been many adjustments, but family and church are constants we can hold onto. It helps that Donna and I are best friends and equal partners. When making the decision to move we knew it wouldn't matter where we lived, if we were together."
Robin received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the California State University in Long Beach; and his graduate studies for a Masters Degree in Education.
