Our Story

"Exceeding your expectations is not optional, its our mission!"

Funeraria Luz De Paz has been serving the Bridgeport area community for many years. We’re thankful to be an important part of this community and will continue our longstanding legacy of helping families honor their loved ones.



The Funeraria Luz de Paz, (Peaceful Light Funeral Home), was established in 1997. The original location was 1390 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport, CT. At the time we shared the facility with the Lester Gee Funeral Home and its Owner and Funeral director, whom will always be appreciated, Lester Gee. After just a year and a half, under the guidance and great insight of an amazing Mentor and one person the owner, Edgar Rodriguez, considers a personal friend, Kevin Lesko of the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home, Fairfield, CT. We relocated from our originally opened facility and were able to obtain the facility we are currently located in which is the former Abriola Funeral Home. Throughout many years, we have remodeled the entire facility from top to bottom. It has been our focus and vision to provide the highest quality facilities, services, technology and treatment to every family we serve regardless of any financial limitations they may have. We strive to provide education and guidance to make wise decisions in every aspect of the funeral arrangements. Our motto is that a family has only One opportunity to do things right, and it is our responsibility to assist them in making those decisions. In the end of it all, it is imperative they will feel proud of making the choice for us to serve them. Together after all is said and done, we want the family members to know, they were cared for by us every step of the way. .Our facilities have been remodeled completely in and out. They have been tastefully decorated to create a pleasing, peaceful atmosphere where families and public can comfortably remember their loved one's lives. We believe everyone should be considered royalty and treated as such. Our goal is that not only we serve families, but they can understand that our facilities are cared for at the same level as the care of their loved ones. We do not pretend to be perfect but yet strive to provide the highest level, (not a highest, but THE Highest Levels) of quality when it comes to services, facilities, products and above all the care to families and their deceased loved ones. Please know we are constantly changing to continuously enhance our abilities and skills to serve with the latest technology available, yet without burdening the families who come to us for services as they mourn their loved ones. We not only expand the level of services every possible chance we get, we provide the expanded levels of service proudly without any increase in costs to those we serve. The exterior of our home is very well lit inside and out the entire evening. We have ample off street parking to accommodate over 80 vehicles and the entire perimeter of our home has ample on-street available parking also. We have held services at times in excess of 400 attendees which we must get through our facilities considering the needs of the family yet we strive to balance the care, wellbeing of the everyone in attendance. In the busy world we live in we cherish the time of those who have made it their goal to invest a few moments to see a loved one and /or the family of the deceased who has services in our home.

In Short, our strive to create elegant, pleasing and peaceful atmosphere from the instant you come into our home, as best we can. We have gone to great lengths to create the atmosphere of a "HOME" for everyone to experience. From our arrangement area where we comfortably sit up to 8 who can make arrangements, Our main chapel which seats almost 100 comfortably, our main corridor creating a spacious ambiance to walk through and finally our video room, where wonderful moments are cherished, good times are remembered shared and tears reflect tender moments that are being remembered. Every effort made to assure your comfort when you are here or across an ocean in another country.
