Hooper Funeral Homes & Crematory are full service funeral homes, serving Citrus County since 1946. In 1970, Lowell and Ruth Hooper became owners of the funeral homes. Now, their son Dwight L. Hooper serves as a second-generation funeral director at the funeral homes. As family owned and operated funeral homes, we are fully committed to the communities we serve and live in.

Hooper Funeral Homes & Crematory have three locations in Citrus County including Inverness, Beverly Hills and Homosassa. We also provide extra comfort to the families we serve by owning our own crematory. This means your loved one never leaves our family’s care, even when you choose cremation.

Additional locations: Homosassa and Beverly Hills
