Bryan-Braker Funeral Home
Bryan-Braker Funeral Home has been owned and operated by the Bryan family since 1954. Paul C. Bryan, Jr. purchased the only funeral home in Suisun City and added his name to the door. In 1964 Paul started his own cemetery, Fairmont Memorial Park at 1901 Union Ave in Fairfield.
Bill Braker has long ago retired and his ownership bought out by the Bryans. He was a foundational part of our company becoming what it is today. We will always be Bryan-Braker.
Craig Bryan, son of Paul and current CEO and owner has since taken over running the corporate operations and continued to provide caring, compassionate service through the family business. Craig’s daughter, Jenna Bryan Stewart, is currently General Manager and being groomed to take over the business as Craig moves further into retirement.
Craig and his wife, Francie, strongly believe in community involvement and continue to be an active member in our community. Craig had a big hand in building the skate park in Fairfield, he chartered the Fairfield-Suisun Twilight Rotary Club, is a member of the Elks, Masonic Lodge, both Fairfield and Vacaville Chambers of Commerce and was a part of starting the first Wine and Food Jubilee that still supports NorthBay Healthcare to this day.
Bryan-Braker has been a sponsor of the Wine and Food Jubliee for thirty-one years. Francie, along with being the food chair for the Wine and Food Jubliee, Francie is a member of Soroptimist of Central Solano County, member of 100 Women of Solano County, and LeTip of Vacaville.
Operating a funeral home isn’t a job for everyone. Every person who walks through your door is experiencing one of the most vulnerable and confusing times of their lives. It takes a special someone to be able to carry out what the Bryan family and staff are known for – the special balance between professionalism and compassion.
Bryan-Braker Funeral home is proud to say we can help anyone in the community. Whether it is pre-planned funerals or helping people who have never had a family member pass, we are here to help. Especially when it comes to different cultures. We pride ourselves on having the knowledge and experience of all traditions and cultures; on that same token we are constantly learning and evolving as a company to continue to provide our community with the most professional, respectful and personalized service possible.
“One thing that I admired of my father was his commitment to always be the funeral service provider who was knowledgeable of all faiths, their customs and beliefs, and not fall into a pattern of always working with the same religion. We truly strive to make the service as unique as the individual,” – Craig Bryan, Owner/President
“We love Vacaville and this entire area and are proud to be members of this community,” – Francie Bryan, Cemetery Administrator
“It’s a nice platform to be able to be of service to people when they’re going through this grieving process in their time of need. A lot of people haven’t set up a service so they look to me and our other directors as their guiding light. It takes a special person to be a funeral director and we have some amazing staff here that are able to find the balance between professionalism and compassion. We have gotten a lot of positive feedback,” – Jenna Bryan Stewart, General Manager
