History

Chapel at Stowers Funeral HomeJames H. Brandon was the son of John and Martha Brandon, who were actually the founders of Brandon, Florida. In 1876, James built a large 2-story home. His wife, Johanna, and their 7 children loved entertaining guests in their Folk Victorian southern mansion.

In 1901, William and Doc Estelle Brandon Varnedoe purchased the home. Edward Linsley bought it around 1912. From 1946 to 1955, his daughter’s family, the Walter Claytons, lived in it. In 1960, with financial backing from John "Rudy" Williams, Dick Stowers’s dream commenced when they purchased and converted the building into a funeral home. Mr. Stowers operated the Stowers Funeral home until he retired in the late 90s.

The Brandon Homestead is a central image in the town of Brandon. The facade and basic floor plan of the original L-shaped house is still preserved after nearly 150 years. As Stowers Funeral Home, we continue to welcome generations of local families during their most difficult times.

"I would highly recommend Stowers Funeral Home to everyone for your funeral needs. Every staff member I encountered was very caring and professional. My highest regards go to Lisa and CJ. Lisa took her time with me to go through the details of the funeral package. She gave me all options to consider. There was no pressure or pushing for decisio

ns to be made quickly. We paused several times for her to get to know my loved one. This gesture made me feel important and let me know she was interested in his life and not just the business aspect. Thank you Lisa. CJ. Reviewed the entire package with me and went over 'next steps'. I never had to ask questions as he was so thorough. CJ also paused throughout his presentation to speak of my loved one. It was very evident that getting to know the deceased was important to all of them. He was extremely knowledgeable, personable and professional. I could not ask for a better team to work with during this difficult time."
