A Tradition of Care: Celebrating Families Since 1953

Nestled in the heart of the Tampa Bay area, David C. Gross Funeral Homes stands as a testament to unwavering commitment and respect for families from all walks of life. With a history enriched by service and dedication, we have been honored to provide funeral services to thousands of families, upholding the belief that every individual deserves respect and dignity in their final farewell.


Our story began in 1953 in St. Petersburg, in a stately home at the nexus of community life, poised to serve the growing neighborhoods with care and compassion. Throughout the years, under various esteemed names and through the vision of St. Petersburg native David C. Gross since 1979, our services have expanded and adapted to meet the evolving needs of our community.


With strategic expansions, including the acquisition of the Downs-Ford Funeral Home in downtown St. Petersburg in 1982, and the Robert D. Easter Funeral Home in Gulfport in 1991, David C. Gross Funeral Homes has deepened its roots in the community. Although operations from these locations have since been consolidated to enhance our offerings, our commitment to serving families with grace and dignity remains unchanged. Today, David C. Gross Funeral Homes is synonymous with trust, respect, and the highest standard of personalized funeral services, continuing to earn its excellent reputation across the Tampa Bay area.

The employees at David C. Gross Funeral Home in St. Petersburg, FL., are so very kind and helpful. It really is a ministry and not just a job, and I want to thank them for all their care and support during two very trying and difficult times, as they aided us in both of our parents' passing.

Rebekah Foley was so sweet. She took very good care of my sister and of course mom. Although we did not use all of the services available, as we took mom home to CT, I would highly recommend them.
