History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

We are the oldest family owned and operated funeral home in Naples FL. When a funeral home is family owned, it means something. It means that the people you trust in your time of need are your neighbors and they live right in Naples FL.


In fact, you may already know Michael, Dana and their children or the employees of Naples Funeral Home through school, church, community groups or charity organizations.

That means that we are involved in the community, we know the people and we know the local customs and traditions.

In a time of sorrow, it's good to know that your neighbor cares.

While many funeral homes have family names, quite a few are actually operated by large corporations with headquarters in another state. Not Naples Funeral Home, our directors are available 24 hours a day to answer your questions, you will never get an answering service.
