Stephane Aube (39)

Utility Person/Cemetery Services
City of Greater Sudbury

Licensed Funeral Director

An active member of the Lions Club of Sudbury, he has served as president, and was one of the youngest members to do so. He has co-hosted the CTV Lions Club Christmas telethon numerous times. A licensed funeral director, he works with the city's cemetery services department.

Q: What has been your biggest challenge?
A: I'm constantly trying to find ways to make sure my two boys have a memorable childhood and have everything they need. I want to be involved in their lives as much as possible because they change so quickly at a young age. Rylan and Bryston have brought so much joy and laughter into my life.

Q: What was your toughest decision?
A: One of my toughest decisions was to put my career as a funeral director on hold a few years back after almost 15 years in the profession. I still have my licence but I'm not active in the profession at this time. I made this decision to spend more quality time with my little family.

Q: What are three things you can't live without?
A: If you were to ask some of my closest relatives and friends this question, all of them, with a laugh, would most likely say; "Steph can't live without his Pepsi and his sweets." I would have to agree with them. Something else I can't live without is my barbecue. Even at -30 C, I will get out there on my deck, clear out the snow and throw burgers or steaks on the grill.

Q: How do you unwind after a long day at work?
A: Do parents of very young children ever get to unwind? Sometimes, I do get to unwind a little while I sit down with the boys to watch one of their favourite shows, The Wiggles. Usually around 10 at night, after many house chores have been completed, my wife and I get to start relaxing and watch the news.

Q: What are you currently reading?
A: I am too much of a busy body to sit down for long periods of time to read a book. When I am at work on my coffee break or lunch hour, I do like to read newspapers and keep up with the current events.

Q: Who is your most valued mentor and why?
A: My parents have helped me to grow and develop into the person I am today.
