Leaders in Connecticut

Throughout its 60-year history, Duksa Family Funeral Homes has been an innovative leader, always striving to find new ways to improve how families celebrate the lives of their loved ones.

Current Duksa Family Funeral Homes owner Diana Duksa Kurz, has been active in funeral industry governance, serving as a spokesperson and helping create professional conduct standards with the National Funeral Directors Association.  Funeral Director Alexander J. Scott has served as Secretary of the Connecticut Funeral Directors Association


We were one of the first funeral homes in Connecticut to actively offer families the option to guarantee services and merchandise against future cost increases with prefunded funeral contracts. The written contracts guarantee that there will be no hidden or additional costs for funeral services and merchandise.

Advocate Personalization

To help families celebrate the life of their love ones with customized services, Duksa Family Funeral Homes’ funeral director, James Kurz, has attended training and is qualified as a certified celebrant.  For families who are not affiliated with a church, a celebrant can offer personalized, meaningful funeral services to honor the life of a loved one.

Formal Chapels

Some families prefer a funeral service setting but are concerned that elderly or grief-stricken drivers, inclement weather or complicated directions may inhibit attendance at a multiple location event. At Duksa Family Funeral Homes our locations offer comfortable family rooms for visitations and formal church-like chapels for funerals.

Providing Clear, Concise, Detailed Information

Continuing to lead the industry in the information it provides, Duksa.net is one of the most comprehensive funeral websites in Hartford County. Among other things, we provide costs, directions, obituaries and even tips on children and funerals, funeral etiquette – all with the click of a mouse.

Customized Stationery
Duksa Family Funeral Homes will create personalized remembrance cards. These small take-home keepsake cards are designed with pictures, sayings, religious verses, stories, etc. so family and friends can continue to celebrate the life of a loved one after the funeral is over.

Today there are endless options to personalize a funeral and Duksa Family Funeral Homes continues to lead the way in making these options available to you.

Innovative Convenience
When Duksa Family Funeral Homes was founded; one strong focus was creating the most convenient, user-friendly space possible. Convenience is still a top priority at Duksa Family Funeral Homes. Both locations have been methodically and specifically designed for funerals. We continually update our facilities to make them more comfortable and ensure that they are all easily accessible, impeccably maintained and expertly staffed. Duksa Family Funeral Homes also provides plenty of convenient parking in beautifully landscaped, well-lit lots
