Our History at Keyser Funeral Service


We have a long tradition of excellence in serving our neighbors with caring and compassion: Our roots trace back to 1889, when William K. Kukuk, (great-grandfather of Eric) became a funeral director.

After returning from World War II in 1949, Eric’s father William S. Keyser founded Keyser Funeral and Cremation Service as it exists today. Eric, now a fourth-generation funeral director with over thirty years of experience, joined his father in the business in 1974. Eric’s son Luke, who joined the family business in 2010, became the fifth generation of Keysers to serve the Kingston and Port Ewen/Town of Esopus area communities.

With compassion, understanding, and pride, Eric, Luke, and the staff at A. Carr & Son Funeral Home, are there to guide you in honoring your loved one, and to care for you in your loss.

We are honored to help you through this difficult time.logoYour loved one never leaves our care.
