A landmark business, Kraeer Funeral Homes and Cremation Centers has served Pompano Beach, Florida for more than 55 years.
R. Jay Kraeer and his wife, Lorraine, opened their first funeral home at 200 N. Federal Highway in 1952. The handsome white building, although originally smaller than what stands today, is more than 58 years old and remains on the same corner. When R. Jay and Lorraine began, he was the funeral director while she took care of the business, running the funeral home. Kraeer Funeral Home was the first official funeral home in Pompano Beach as well as the first provider of ambulance service in the area. R. Jay and Lorraine were also very involved in community events.
R. Jay opened several additional locations over the years: Boca in 1957, Sample Road in 1962, Deerfield in 1964, Margate in 1972 and Coral Springs in 1980. R. Jay Kraeer passed away in 2004, but his legacy will live on forever as a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of more than 1,800 funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
