R. Jay Kraeer attended mortuary science school in Cincinnati and moved to Florida with his wife Lorraine in the late 1940s. He and Lorraine opened their first funeral home—and the city’s first funeral home—in Pompano Beach in 1952 (visitations were held in the living room). He also provided the first ambulance service to Pompano Beach.
In 1957, Jay opened a 2nd funeral home in Boca Raton. It was followed by another Pompano Beach location (1961), Deerfield Beach funeral home (1963), Fort Lauderdale location (1966), a location in Margate (1972) and a Coral Springs funeral home (1980). By the time Jay sold the Kraeer funeral homes to a group of employees, there were 7 locations in Broward County.
That group then opened Kraeer Mason Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Tamarac.
Jay’s high expectations of his team helped establish Kraeer Funeral Home as a trusted and compassionate provider. He was respected by his peers in the funeral industry, and they elected him president of the National Funeral Directors Association in 1976.
He died in 2004, leaving his nephew Robert D. Russell to continue the Kraeer legacy. Robert—who lives in Fort Lauderdale with his wife Kelli—plays an active role in the funeral homes, which today are members of the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest group of funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.
