In 1921, Herman Rodenbeck originally founded what is now the Hockemeyer & Miller Funeral Home in Fort Wayne, Ind. The funeral home was originally located in central Fort Wayne and was operated by the Rodenbeck family until 1968 when Harold Hockemeyer purchased the funeral home and changed the name to Hockemeyer Funeral Home. In 1990, Jim Miller joined Harold and started the Hockemeyer & Miller Funeral Home, where he is still manager today.
The funeral home was in the same location from 1921 to 1992. Then, Hockemeyer & Miller Funeral Home opened their current location at 6131 St. Joe Road. In 1999, Hockemeyer & Miller Funeral Home became part of the Dignity Memorial network, which serves families all over the United States and Canada.
As a Dignity Memorial® provider, the staff at Hockemeyer & Miller Funeral Home is dedicated to providing confident, empathic and professional service to all of our families.
