About Us

Kevin C. Kilcline

Location Manager

I’m the founder and director of Advantage Funeral & Cremation Services of Portland, Maine. My funeral career began at age 14, when I earned the opportunity to work for the best funeral director I knew, my father, William T. Kilcline, Jr.

I graduated from New England Institute of Applied Sciences in 1992 and went on to obtain my funeral director's license in Rhode Island. As a fully qualified funeral director, I worked side by side with my father until his retirement in 2000.  In 2013 I earned a Bachelors Degree in both Marketing and Buisiness Management rom New England College of Business and Finance.

My wife and I are both active participates in our local community. I volunteer in the local school systems in Yarmouth, were we live and help with the local Boy Scout Pack.

My family is here for yours. Give us and call, and we'll help you organize a beautiful memorial service truly worthy of your loved one.
