Signage at Blount & Curry, Terrace Oaks Funeral Home and CrematoryWhen 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 first 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 Tampa-area clients as members of the Blount & Curry family.

"My only thought was getting my husband out of the hospital that disrespected him so much, when my daughter called them they were quick to pick him up, and my main thing was for him to have a pillow I know it sounds stupid but in the hospital they would never give them pillow funeral home make sure he had a pillow and he was transported and he was treated with the upmost respect and care. I will always be eternally grateful to them. And when is my time my children will use the same funeral home"
