Renovations are underway at Blount & Curry Funeral Home-MacDill Chapel, and though the building is closed, we are still here for you. Despite the construction, funeral directors and support staff are on the property working from a temporary office building. They continue to make arrangements for funerals, cremations and memorials. For at-need families they are offering alternative venues—both religious and nonreligious—within the south Tampa area. For those who wish toa service, they are offering special construction pricing. The funeral home will reopen this fall after a top-to-bottom remodel that will bring an extended chapel with space for more guests and a state-of-the-art audiovisual system and an elegant event center for catered receptions.

When Blount Henderson Funeral Home first opened its doors in 1913, Tampa was a small city on the rise. When Frazier T. Blount purchased an interest in the funeral home 4 years later, the F.T. Blount Company Funeral Home represented a change in name and ownership.
In that era, funeral homes usually operated out of small converted residences. In search of larger quarters, Mr. Blount purchased 2 homes on the northeast corner of Tyler and Marion Streets. One structure was converted to a funeral home and the other became his family residence. An enclosed passageway connected the 2 facilities, creating Tampa's 1st funeral home staffed on a 24-hour basis.
Growth and expansion
In 1952, Mr. Blount retired and sold his business to 2 key employees, Henry Hale and Jack Yent Sr. Three years later, Hale and Yent built Tampa's first conventional funeral home on Nebraska Avenue. That building now houses the administrative offices and training center for our new employees, as well as continuing education classrooms for all personnel.
Over the years, numerous funeral homes from Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties joined the F.T. Blount family, including Curry & Son Funeral Home, founded by Mark Curry Jr. In late 2006, Terrace Oaks Chapel was added to serve families of Temple Terrace and the Tampa area. Today, 5 chapels serve clients as members of the Blount & Curry family.
