John Vraim “Vraimopoulos” and his wife Christina started Vraim Funeral Home at 53rd and Locust Street, in West Philadelphia, in 1950. As the cliental moved west, so did they. In 1964, John purchased and renovated part of the Sellers estate at 66 South State Rd, where we still remain until this day. In 1979, John retired and lived peacefully next door to the business he founded, until his death in 1995.
Although helping his father, John, out with the business from the time he was a small boy, Tony officially took over in 1979. In the coming years he would triple the business by opening new and larger relations with the Greek, Armenian, Albanian, and Orthodox communities. With his partner, Albert LaBricciosa, he served the public diligently for 37 years.
Today, Tony takes a back seat and is proud to have his two sons, Michael and David, run the business. Along with their partner, Al, they are proud to continue the legacy and tradition of honesty and service that their father and grandfather built, and they hope to continue it long into the future.
