Packer Funeral Home


Tom Packer has been serving the families of Sarasota and Bradenton since 1980. He opened his own funeral home in 2001 to better serve those families who count Tom as their “family funeral director”. From both a personal and professional level, Tom understands grief and bereavement. His perspectives can help comfort you during this difficult time.

Known for his compassion, Tom serves all families who call on him, regardless of their needs. From any type of cremation service to the most traditional of church services, Tom will provide the needed guidance. He is particularly known for directing funerals and memorial services at the various churches in the area. Knowledgeable of the various protocols at the different churches, Tom will take care of all of the necessary details to insure a fitting tribute to your loved one.

Veterans will be glad to know that Tom is familiar with all of the requirements for burial in our National Cemeteries, especially now that there is one right here in Sarasota. The Sarasota National Cemetery is the sixth one in Florida. You can go online to http://www.cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/sarasota.asp for more information. Tom can arrange for committal services including the services of an Honor Guard. Whether the deceased was active duty or retired, Tom can assist you.     

You will find Tom on Beneva Road in a remodeled home that offers a quiet, home-like setting. His chapel offers an intimate setting and is large enough for most services. Ample parking is also available.

Reasonable pricing for any and all services make Packer Funeral Home a wise choice. You can always find a cheaper “deal” elsewhere. You can also spend much more than you need spend. Keeping Tom in mind when you choose a funeral home will make a decided difference in how you feel after services are rendered. Strangely, there is such a thing as client family satisfaction. Tom guarantees it.

And, for your preneed arrangements, call Tom now to schedule an appointment. He handles pre-arrangement service at no charge while offering prepaid funerals to those who desire or need to pay in advance. If you don’t already know Tom, it’s a good time to get to know him: before you need him.
