The funeral procession is a somber, yet meaningful, final journey. Together family and friends escort their loved one to a place that honors a life well lived.
Today there are a variety of ways to personalize your loved one’s funeral including a choice of final transportation. Duksa Family Funeral Homes offers several options based on your personal needs.
Our impeccably maintained Cadillac hearses and sedans are an excellent choice for traditional, stately funeral processions.
The Farewell Ride Motorcycle Hearse
An alternative to the traditional hearse is a 19th century-style hearse drawn by a V-twin-powered 3-wheel Harley Davidson motorcycle. Duksa Family Funeral Homes helps families create a unique remembrance for the motorcycle enthusiast or any loved one who would have appreciated the nostalgia of a horse drawn carriage.
Duksa Family Funeral Homes can also arrange drivers and special cars for you and your family. For some, comforting moments occur in family cars or limousines on the way from one funeral event to another. After an emotional service surrounded by friends and family, some quiet time with immediate family can be calming and grounding.
For families who are reuniting from out-of-town locations for the funeral, it is nice to spend rare time with "just dad or mom and the kids." Many family members also appreciate not having the additional stress of dealing with unfamiliar streets while they are dealing with the intensity of a death. Family cars can be used for airport runs, trips to a nursing home, etc.
To further personalize your loved one’s funeral, we can arrange to lead the procession on a favorite road or past a sentimental place.
