In Kenmore, Tonawanda & Buffalo, NY, family always comes first. That has been the case since the city was first founded on the shores of Lake Erie, and it’s still true today. And at Lester H. Wedekindt Funeral Home Inc., we understand that better than anyone.
Our funeral home was founded in 1887, during one of the high points of Buffalo’s history. At the turn of the 20th century, Buffalo was gaining fame as the “City of Light” thanks to the hydroelectric power plants that provided cheap and plentiful electric light to the city. Electricity brought industry and fame, including the Pan-American Exposition in 1901.
The twentieth century brought its share of ups and downs, but recently, the greater Buffalo area has been experiencing a renaissance. Unprecedented economic investment and affordable housing make Kenmore, Tonawanda & Buffalo great places to raise a family, and there are always plenty of options for entertainment.
