Our Heritage

In 1928,  the late L.D. “Douglas” Wolfe Sr. and his wife, the former Cassius Elizabeth "Lizzie" Hoodless opened Wolfe Funeral Home in Milton, Florida which was the county seat of Santa Rosa County.  The funeral home served as a place of business and residence for Douglas, Lizzy, and their three children, Dorothy, Doug Jr. and Bill.

In 1938, Dorothy "Dot", married Avis C. Lewis from Bagdad, Florida. Avis graduated from Gupton -Jones College of Mortuary Science in 1941.  After Avis returned from serving his country in the U. S. Army Medical Corp., during World War II,  Douglas Wolfe Sr. incorporated him in to the business and altered the name to Wolfe-Lewis Funeral Home.

.......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

In 1974, a new location was opened at 6405 Hwy 90 W., Milton, and the downtown chapel closed its doors.

With Avis Lewis' passing in August of 1985, his sons, Sam and Mike, took over the daily operations of the funeral home under the council of their mother. In October 1991, they opened their second location: Lewis Funeral Home-Navarre Chapel, 7794 Navarre Pkwy, Navarre, FL.

Sam and Mike became the co-owners of the family business at their mother’s passing in 1996. They have continued to expand the firm with the recent addition of Lewis Funeral Home-Pace Chapel, and Fields of Faith Crematory and Tribute Center, 4777 W. Spencer Field Rd., Pace.

.......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

They have also moved into the fourth generation of “Our Family Serving Your Family” with Sam's sons, Chase and Trent Lewis, currently finishing their Mortuary Science degrees.

Sam and Mike appreciate the continued trust and confidence that the citizens of Santa Rosa County and surrounding areas have extended to them and that have allowed them to be a locally owned  FAMILY firm for over 85 years.

It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.

Pre-Arrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
