Donovan has extensive experience in the funeral industry, first as a Funeral Director then as the Operations Manager in Perth. Then as the General Manager at North West Funerals in Victoria, and now as the Manager/Funeral Director at Premier Funerals Currimundi QLD. Donovan is passionate about his own family and has also always had a natural affiliation to serving other families by drawing on his own religious/spiritual strengths to be of service in his own church, and to the wider community.
Originally from South Africa, Donovan has lived in SA, QLD, WA and VIC and has enjoyed a lot of travel with his wife, two sons and daughter. An enthusiastic sportsman in his youth, he spent many hours playing soccer, rugby, cricket, and boxing, and now still loves a game of golf, gardening and walking the family furbaby.
Donovan is also a decorated soldier and veteran of the South African Armed Forces who took part in the South African Bush War in 1984-1986 and is part of SAMVOA (South African Veterans Organisation Australasia) and is a member of the RSL. For the last several years he has marched in the Anzac parade in Perth WA and Remembrance day which he is hopeful to continue here in Queensland.
Liezel has worked extensively in the funeral industry alongside her husband Donovan. Starting in Perth as a Branch Clerk, and Funeral Director, they then moved on to Mildura, Victoria where she was a Funeral Director for North West Funerals, and ran the EO James Funerals office. Due to being unable to see their grandchildren in Queensland during the COVID pandemic, they decided to make the move to the Sunshine Coast to be closer to family. As you can tell, Liezel is very family orientated and you will experience her warmth as Funeral Director / Administrator when you enter the Premier Funerals office in Currimundi.
