Modern funeral home services

Lobby at Kraeer-Fairchild Funeral Home and Cremation CenterOur North Federal Highway funeral home has a contemporary, beach atmosphere. We are a non-denominational, multicultural funeral home representing all traditions, with years of experience caring for people from all walks of life. We operate our own crematory, which offers traditional cremation or no-flame cremation, known as calcination.

The staff at Kraeer-Fairchild Funeral Home and Cremation Center understands that losing a loved one is a difficult experience, and we are committed to compassionate, professional care. When we sit down to plan a funeral, we have a simple goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service. Together, we explore the variety of options as well as creative ideas.

Personal services that celebrate life

Whether you seek a direct cremation, traditional funeral with a graveside service or a modern celebration of life with a band, food and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one, we go the extra mile to make it happen. And we do so with a level of care and compassion that our families trust.

Want a dove release? An ice cream social? Personalized golf balls as mementos? A memorial service on the beach? Whatever you need, we carefully plan a celebration of life that is as unique as the life it honors.

"The team at Kraeer-Fairchild provided exceptional service and extreme sensitivity in the absolute most difficult time of our lives. Our son, 26 years years of age, past away tragically from a car accident on 3/29/22. We were at a loss on all levels with no idea how to handle end of life arrangements. John Lilly, and his team, helped us through ev

ery aspect of our sons services/funeral and cremation. Stephen's funeral was so incredibly perfect and beautiful. John asked us questions about Stephens hobbies and interests and used the information to make the service so personalized to him, in such a short amount of time. We are forever grateful that we entrusted Kraeer-Fairchild to the end of life care, dignity and celebration our beloved son."
