Carnie P. Bragg Sr., graduated from the Renouard Training School for Embalmers of New York City, New York. In 1937, along with his wife, Eunice, co-founded Bragg Funeral Home in Passaic, New Jersey. Mr. Bragg's exceptional level of service working with families earned him a reputation as a kind, caring and compassionate funeral professional. Due to the growth and success of the Passaic facility, the second facility was opened in 1945 to service the Paterson community. In 1945, Mrs. Bragg graduated from the Renouard Training School for Embalmers. Carnie and Eunice moved to Paterson along with their two children, Constance and Carnie, Jr. Constance attended Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee and in later years became the Office Manager. Carnie, Jr. attended and graduated from Fisk University in 1961 and from McAllister School of Embalming in New York City in 1962. He was licensed in 1963 and was the Senior Director from 1972 until his passing in December 2020.

Mr. Bragg Sr., past president of the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association was scheduled to attend its convention in New Orleans, Louisiana when he was tragically killed in an automobile accident. The business continued under the direction of Mrs. Bragg and Carnie, Jr. with the assistance of Constance B. Wright. The business was renamed Carnie P. Bragg Funeral Homes, Inc. After Mrs. Bragg passed away on November 7, 1990 both Constance and Carnie, Jr. were left to carry on the family business. The Funeral Home has a long history of serving the residents of Northern New Jersey and has come to be regarded as a neighborhood institution. Many families have grown to depend on the Bragg family at the time of one of life's most stressful situations. 

Constance and Carnie, Jr. have continued to build an organization of the finest staff members, both past and present, who have contributed to the growth and heritage of the company, and who are dedicated to serving families through their most difficult time. We thank all of you who have entrusted your loved ones with us.
