Our History 

• Fuller Metz Funeral & Cremation Service traces its roots back, deep into the early days of Cape Coral.  As the first funeral home in Cape Coral, we continue the tradition of serving families nearly five decades later. The first facility was opened in 1967 in downtown Cape Coral on Lafayette Street as the Metz Funeral Home.  In 2010 Metz and Fuller funeral home merged to become Fuller Metz.  Located at 3740 Del Prado Blvd. the funeral home remains the premier provider of burials and cremations in Cape Coral.

• From traditional funerals to simple cremations, Fuller Metz is dedicated to serving the entire community in its time of need.

• Over the years, the original mission of the firm hasn't changed. We have always intended to provide the best, most professional services, complemented by the finest products. Today, we pride ourselves on being current with the major changes in funeral service trends - and bring those innovations and memorialization options to our client families with integrity and insight.

• The facility offers both large and small venues to honor, remember and pay tribute to loved ones. Banquet rooms, video recording and webcasting, and state of the art online memorial webpages set us apart from any other provider in the area.
• Our staff not only works in the community, but also live and participate in many community organizations.  As members of the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, several churches, several  charitable organization, and youth sports, our staff takes a vested interest in making Cape Coral and the surrounding communities a better place to call home.
