Kevin Raggio

Funeral Director & Embalmer

Kevin is a lifelong resident of Angels Camp, graduating from Mark Twain Elementary in 1979 and Bret Harte High School in 1983. He was hired by Terry Parker in May of 1985 and served his Embalmers apprenticeship under Terry for 1 year before attending Mortuary College at Cypress College in Southern California. During his time there he worked for O’Connor Laguna Hills Mortuary in Laguna Hills where he finished his apprenticeship. And graduated from Cypress College in 1987 and returned to Angels Camp. Working for a mortuary in Southern California and not knowing anyone was not all rewarding. His time in Southern California made him appreciate his roots here in Calaveras County. A good percentage of families he deals with on a daily basis he knows personally and they appreciate working with someone they know. In his off time, he enjoys the outdoors, hunting, fishing, trapshooting and traveling.

Keith Rosa

Funeral Director & Embalmer

Keith was born and raised in San Jose, California and entered the profession working for several local mortuaries in the Bay Area. Looking to further his knowledge in Death Care, he enrolled in the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science and graduated in the summer of 1999. Not liking the direction the corporate mortuaries where headed he longed for a change. Calaveras Mortuaries had an opening and he jumped at the chance to live and work in the mountains he loved for a family mortuary.
