Bryan-Braker Funeral Home has served Solano County for 60 years, when Paul C. Bryan Jr. bought Suisun City-based Hansen Funeral Home. It remains a family operation today, with Craig Bryan at the helm. “We work hard to treat every family with respect and help them navigate the many decisions that need to be made when they lose a member of their family,” Craig Bryan said. The funeral home helps people design funerals and makes arrangements, works with local cemeteries and operates Fairmont Memorial Park in Fairfield. It offers such services as creating slide shows for the visitations and producing memorial tribute DVDs to play during services. Among the technological breakthroughs it incorporates is GlassArt, which allows the transfer of color photographic images onto granite monuments. All families are different and final farewells should reflect this, Craig Bryan said. “We want to help them plan a service that brings out what was unique about that person, how they touched the lives of the family members, their friends and coworkers,” he said. Bryan-Braker is here because families in the past trusted the business and it will be here when they need it in the future, he said.
