About Us

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.

Our History

Skyway Memorial Gardens was established over 55 years ago on 41 acres of pristine countryside dotted with majestic oak trees and traditional Florida fauna. Today, the countryside has been transformed into beautiful manicured gardens that offer visitors beauty, peace and solace.

We consider it a great honor that our families have chosen to place their trust in us to care for their loved ones. We are committed to fulfilling that trust with compassion and gentleness.

Historically, Skyway has offered several forms of memorialization throughout our gardens. These choices include Ground Burial, Community Mausoleum, Private Family Estates, Cremation Niches, Cremation Gardens with Benches, Memorial Boulders and Trees, and our recently completed new Monument Row Garden.
