Our Heritage 130 Years Strong!


Frank Zakrajsek was a carpenter who made furniture and caskets, he started the funeral home in 1890.


Our first location was 1105 Norwood Road in Cleveland, Ohio.

In 1937, we built our present location at 6016 St. Clair Avenue.


In the late 1950's, the name Zakrajsek was shortened to Zak.

The Zak Funeral Home has passed on from father to son for four generations and Skyler Zak has graduated from college, started his apprenticeship and will continue on as the 5th generation Funeral Director. 2020 is our 130 year anniversary!
