Conner Bowman History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Welcome to Lynch Conner-Bowman Funeral Home. We are pleased to announce that we are now 100 percent locally owned and operated. The citizens of Franklin County now have another option for a locally owned funeral home.

We have completed renovations to our funeral home and now offer everything on one level. Our selection and arrangement rooms have been moved to the first floor, making them more accessible for the families we serve. The Aurora Casket Company Family Advisor system has been installed. This will give our families the opportunity to see caskets and vaults without going into the selection room if they are uncomfortable. We still offer our full selection room if a family would prefer seeing the caskets in full view.


All of the furniture has been replaced, the exterior painted and our chapel upgraded. We offer video recordings of every service as well as video memorials for each family member.

Conner-Bowman Funeral Home & Crematory is now available on Route 220, at the intersection with Wirtz Road. This is a state of the art facility offering 11,000 square feet of space to assist our families in their time of need. Having the largest and most modern facilities in the county will allow us the flexibility to serve each family as if they were the only family we were serving at any time. We offer the County’s first on-site crematory which is located in the main funeral home, large spacious viewing rooms, the county’s largest chapel (with seating up to 200) a separate family room, a family lounge and a children’s room. Our state-of-the art audio and video systems and instrumentation, including the Allen Organ or Roland Digital Piano, are available to you.


We offer many services, including traditional, cremation, full-service, direct, or memorial services. We will arrange these services for you at one of our chapels, or at a place that you choose. This could be a community center, church, or family home. We can assist with all veteran paperwork, provide Military Honors at the burial site and provide a flag to honorably discharged veterans.

As an added service to the families we serve, we provide a dove at the graveside for each family at no additional cost. This is our way of giving back to each family. We offer the dove release after the memorial service for families who choose cremation. This is done in front of our funeral homes. We also offer a video tribute without a limit to the number of photos as long as they will fit on a disk. This service is also available at no cost.


It is the little things that makes the difference in funeral services, such as water at the graveside that our staff hands out, or the warmth of the lap robes that we place on the family during the winter months, the hand fans on those hot days or even opening a door. We strive to give the best service possible, but listening and paying attention to the family is our goal…we welcome any and all requests from the families we serve.

Faye Carter

For as long as I can remember Lynch Conner Bowman Funeral Home is the only funeral home our family has ever used. Their commitment and dedication to their customers has been their top priority. My husband of 51 years, J.W. Hall died April 4, 2013. Kevin Bowman held me hand and led me down the aisle after the service was over. He and his staff treated us as their own family. They catered to every need of mine, as well as my families. They will always be our first choice for burying loved ones.

Conner-Bowman Crematory and Funeral Home was a blessing to our family at the time of my husband’s death in 2010. Conner-Bowman Funeral Home and Crematory was a caring, professional and loving staff that honored all of our wishes. They even considered many things we had never thought of. We will always remember this wonderful experience. The lovely and comfortable facilities offer everything to meet the needs of everyone with someone always available – day or night for consultation. We always felt secure in knowing that everything was being taken care of in a special way. We commend Victor, Kevin and their entire staff for the way in which they ministered to our family and friends during the visitation, funeral, and time following. Our heartfelt thanks for everything!

My mother was diagnosed at Christmas with leukemia. She received chemotherapy and died five weeks later. Our family was overwhelmed and weary from the cancer treatment experience and sudden loss. The professional associates at Conner Bowman responded immediately to our loss, giving us their sincere compassion and respect. The process and preparation of services was easy given the circumstances. Conner Bowman saw to our comfort, and took care of every detail. It was difficult to find a better experience during such a stressful time.
