History & Staff
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
Hooper Funeral Homes has been serving Citrus County since 1946. Originally started as Conrad-Morris and then Porter Funeral Home, Lowell Hooper moved to Inverness in 1970 and began serving his community through 4 decades of service. With a passion to better serve the entire county, two branch locations where added in Beverly Hills and Homosassa in the 1970's. All of the properties have been remodeled through the years including the addition of a crematory on the Inverness property in 1980 and the new Homosassa Chapel construction in 1990. Mr. Hooper passed away in 2009 and our daily operations are now overseen by the second generation, Dwight Hooper. We take great pride in being the "Best of the Best" as voted by the readers of the Citrus County Chronicle for many years and invite you to stop by to answer any of your questions or simply to take a tour of our crematory or other facilities.
