New York, circa 1906
Bernard Leo McIntee, Sr. "Big Chief"; Bernie's grandfather, founded the first McIntee funeral home in Rochester, New York, circa 1906. He would essentially, become the first generation of a family of funeral directors spanning over one hundred years!
Kalis Funeral Home was founded in 1959, by Edward Kalis; we are still at the same location in Wilton Manors, Florida
Founded in 1959
Over 50 years ago
50 years ago, Bernie's father, B. Leo McIntee, Jr., built his fist McIntee Funeral Chapel. In the early 1980's B. Leo, Jr., built another state of the art funeral chapel in Rochester, New York, where he served his community until retirement.
In 2004 Bernie and his wife Marcia, purchased Kalis Funeral Home; thus, restoring in our community, family ownership and tradition with the Kalis-McIntee Funeral & Cremation Center, becoming one of the last "family owned and operated" funeral establishments in the Broward County area.
