A History of Caring

Akin-Davis Funeral Homes has been serving the Clewiston community for decades, long enough to remember a time when funeral homes also operated ambulance services. In 1973 they opened their second location in LaBelle to better serve the needs of the community. 

It was originally named Clewiston funeral home until the early 1980s when Cecil Akin and Luther Davis purchased the business and renamed the funeral home Akin-Davis. In 1998 they expanded to a third location in Fort Myers. In 2009, the Akin children, Daniel and Kimberly continued the family tradition and took over management of the firm. They continue to remain involved in the management of the Akin-Davis funeral home today.
