For over 70 years, we have been honored to have A. Friedman & Sons as a member of Kotecki Family Memorials and are proud and pleased of our decades of service to the Jewish faith and community.


Since 1947, Kotecki Family Memorials has devotedly blended its proficiencies with Jewish memorial customs to provide Cleveland area families with tasteful and traditional commemorative stones, monuments and plaques.


Primary among our specialized proficiencies is our experience and ability to skillfully duplicate previously designed memorials for spouses’ and other family members’ subsequent memorials.  


• To precisely match an existing monument, Kotecki craftsmen;

• Take rubbings, confirm monument size and match the color.

• Construct a layout of the memorial in the shop

• Take ‘Before and After’ photos to confirm exacting specifics

• Hand create, sandblast, laser engrave and/or ‘raise’ the engravings to ensure a precise match


At Kotecki Family Memorials, we take pride in our long history serving the Northeast Ohio Jewish Community specializing in Hebrew lettering and Judaic designs and symbols.   Each monument is crafted using premium granite and is skillfully designed and carved by hand. Among the monument shapes we provide are flat (lawn) markers, slant and bevel markers and bench memorials.


For those whose lives were inspired by their faith, there can be no more fitting—or lasting tribute.
