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.
