Welcome

Legacy Options:  Quality Funerals Without the Funeral Home.

A traditional funeral home is not the most comforting setting for a visitation, funeral service, or remembrance of life event. Most families prefer a venue that holds special meaning and provides solace. At Legacy Options, we encourage you to use your own church or fellowship hall for whatever type of reception you choose. Or if you like, we can help you select a beautiful, tranquil setting in our Southwest Florida community.

Legacy Options is unique to the funeral profession, because we focus exclusively on quality funeral and cremation services. We offer all the services you would expect except that we do not have a chapel or functions room—we don’t believe it’s necessary to replicate what already exists in our community.

Because of this reduced overhead, we offer more affordable funeral and cremation pricing. What we provide in lieu of a function room is full personalized service in arranging a visitation or memorial service at the venue of your choice.

Please know when you entrust us with the care of your loved one, all of our funeral preparations and cremation services are done within our facility under our control and according to our high standards of quality. Unlike other funeral homes, we do not transport your loved one to third parties contractors or to other communities for services where oversight is lost.

Please see our online pricing for funeral and cremation plans. We hope Legacy Options will be your choice when making your pre-need plan arrangements.

Naples Daily News: Legacy Options Funeral and Cremation Service 2 Year anniversary. Legacy Options mission is to keep the time honored traditions of funeral service while offering a new innovative approach. We offer a streamlined and innovative methodology. We have been told by families that we have served that we are no frills but offer high quality of service. Funeral service has been changing in the past 10 years. We are striving to bring funeral service into the 21st century all the while maintaining "small town feel and personalized service". We utilize modern concepts all with affordable pricing. Legacy Options, understands that a funeral home really has no meaning to provide funerals, memorial services, and other end of life tributes, Legacy Options facilities have been constructed to be right sized to reflect more affordable charges, as there are more meaningful facilities to honor their loved one, we are locally owned and operated by local funeral directors, that are a part of our community. Legacy Options has an on-site crematory and embalming facility along with a temperature controlled room when embalming is not required. Unlike some area funeral establishments, we do not contract with a third party for our cremations or embalming. All of our services are preformed on-site. The two co-founders of Legacy have over 80 years’ experience in the funeral profession. Their experience spans both the private and corporate sector offering them a broad knowledge of the funeral profession. Why would two "gray hairs" want to start a new funeral home here in Naples? Both Michael Whyte and Glenn Witzenburg felt that the funeral business had lost its personal touch. The present day traditional funeral business reflects the customs of a by gone era, these traditional facilities throughout many states, counties, one example is “Naples” these large publicly traded have acquired most of the local funeral homes that were once family and these owners lived in our community. The corporations that acquired the local funeral homes, find it impossible to down size their facilities to serve today’s needs. These elaborate expensive funeral homes must make their facilities profitable to support their overhead, and release their profits to shareholders, and give value so as to attract investors. The community has embraced our concept, and have entrusted their loved ones into our care. Legacy Options appreciate this support, and we have served families in both Collier and Lee Counties. This support has resulted to our growth, and we are privilege to serve more family’s year over year. How is Legacy Options different? The main difference you will see is our square footage. We are not a grandiose facility. We are small ... around 2500 square feet. We are not on a busy street where we are visible to all we are located in Corporate Square off Radio Road. We do not have a Chapel in our facility. It is our belief that a full funeral service, visitation or memorial service should be held in a facility that has meaning to the deceased or the family of the deceased. Because of this, we have met with area facilities to offer their establishments in which to hold a service. Some of these are: Garden of Hope and Courage at NCH, the Naples Zoo, The Naples Botanical Gardens, Naples Princess and some of our local Churches who will open their doors to non-members. We also pride ourselves on the "Options" portion of our name. Memorial services can be accompanied by Butterfly Releases, Dove Releases or a Balloon Launch. Internment at sea can be accomplished aboard the Naples Princess or another vessel. How about a Balloon Scattering of the ashes? Or maybe you would like your ashes to become part of a living structure. This can be done through our Artificial Reef program where your ashes are incorporated into an artificial reef which is then lowered into the Gulf to become a structure to enrich our Gulf waters. As most Funeral Homes do, we offer a pre-need program which enables you to prepay for our services at today&#039;s prices and secure that cost forever. Please contact us for more information about the services we offer. Legacy Options Funeral and Cremation Services, 239-659-2009.

June 30, 2013: In a Naples Daily News editorial opinion piece, Jeff Lytle wrote as follows: Here&#039;s a twist on funerals. A new Naples company, Legacy Options, offers viewings and services at places that were special to the deceased. For example, instead of receiving friends at a traditional funeral home, which Legacy does not have at its Naples headquarters, the firm can offer settings such as Naples Botanical Garden, the Naples Zoo or Artis-Naples... Legacy, which does have its own mortuary and crematorium, also can offer services at places of worship... Legacy says its goal is to transform the funeral industry. It just might be onto something.
