Paul S. Czaplewski
I am proud to have been born and raised in Rochester. After graduating from Lourdes High School in 1984, I graduated from Worsham College of Mortuary Science in 1988. It was then that I began my career in funeral service. Today, after 28 years of being a Funeral Director I continue to strive to meet each family's unique needs during their journey through grief. I purchased Ranfranz and Vine in 2001 to honor its rich history in providing quality service to families in our community.
Above all my greatest accomplishments are my children, Rachel, and Ben. They too, are pursuing careers in fields that work in supporting families. Rachel is becoming an RN and Ben will be a second generation funeral director. I am blessed to have watched them grow into amazing adults and so proud to be their dad.
Outside of the office I enjoy golfing, boating, traveling, and cheering on the MN Wild and MN Twins. I also value supporting the community in which we live in. I am a member of MN Funeral Directors Association, National Funeral Directors Association and a certified crematory operator.
We are appreciative of the trust you have in us to care for your loved ones. It is a priority for us to provide personalized and meaningful services that celebrate the life of those who will forever live in your hearts.
