A modern funeral home for all

Reception room at Hodges Funeral Home at Lee Memorial ParkThe beautiful, light-filled Spanish-style Hodges Funeral Home at Lee Memorial Park opened in 1989. It was remodeled in 2016 to better meet the needs of today's Fort Myers-area families. We added contemporary lighting fixtures, flooring and furniture to create a vibrant atmosphere that feels like a luxury Florida resort. Our facility has 3 event rooms: The Floridian, the Magnolia and the Royal Poinciana.

Our smallest venue, the Floridian, features round tables with sea foam green and Caribbean blue tablecloths. The Magnolia is our medium-size venue. It also features brightly covered round tables and features a wall of wooden shelves where you can showcase a loved one’s photographs and beloved mementos. The Royal Poinciana is a premium venue with a variety of seating options, including overstuffed chairs and modern sofas reminiscent of those in a hotel lobby. The focal point of the room is a stone wall where you can display a casket or cremation urn.

On-site crematory

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process, including the different memorial services, while the cemetery team can walk you through the various burial options. From a direct cremation without a service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice.

For families who choose the time-honored tradition of cremation, our full-service funeral home has a private crematory on the property. This gives Hodges Funeral Home complete control of a cremation from start to finish and means your loved one never leaves our care. If you so choose, cremated remains may be buried at Lee Memorial Park.

"The ambience was detailed to who my husband was. It was like they had captured a snapshot of his personality. He loved his Harley & his cats & worked as a mechanic. These were things the director learned during our initial visit. I was not expecting the ambience for the service to be geared towards these things. They had the Harley colors up, framed pictures of our cats & of his harley as well as other things. I was not expecting this and it made me feel so at ease. People attending the service told me how wonderful it looked. I will definitely use Hodges again and I will refer them as well."
