Personalized funeral services

Reception room at Kraeer Funeral Home and Cremation CenterKraeer Funeral Home offers a variety of funeral services to meet the individual needs of our families, including traditional funeral services, a wide range of cremation options and imaginative celebrations of life.

We believe that since every person is an individual, no 2 funeral services should be alike. We design one-of-a-kind tributes by listening to you and your family to learn everything we can about a loved one. Next, we take all of the details and string them together to create an unforgettable memorial. From butterfly releases to buttercream frosting, dancing to DJs, putters to plants, there are as many ways to celebrate a life as there are stars in the sky.

Convenient on-site crematory

Kraeer Funeral Home operates on-site crematory, meaning your loved one will not have to leave our care. Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and the different memorial and burial options. From a direct cremation without a service or a witness to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice.

History

Kraeer Funeral Homes and Cremation Centers have served Pompano Beach and the surrounding areas of Deerfield Beach and Lighthouse Point, 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 running the funeral home.

Growth and expansion

Kraeer Funeral Home was the first official funeral home in Pompano Beach and also the first provider of ambulance service in the area. R. Jay and Lorraine were also actively involved in Pompano Beach area community events. R. Jay opened several additional locations over the years: Boca Raton 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 as a provider of compassion and care in his community.
