Mortuary science is not a common career path for young adults, but for Brandon Wylie, it was an easy decision to begin working for his father’s funeral home. “I saw the work he was doing in the community,” Wylie said of his father. This community impact extends beyond the high level of empathy and sensitivity required in this industry. Wylie Funeral Home has invested significant funds into the West Baltimore neighborhood where it started, and in 2014, they worked with Baltimore’s Vacant to Values program to open a new facility on an abandoned lot across the street from their original location. For Wylie, this has been an opportunity to give back to the neighborhood that helped the business thrive. “That community allowed us to grow,” he says.
