Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home was founded by Bill Crawford and Delbert Bowers in 1972. Both retired from the U.S. military, they felt a need for a strong military-related funeral home in the community. Bill was CSM of the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood. Delbert was a warrant officer in charge of the Officers Club.
The relationships they built during their time in the military provided a great advantage to continue to serve people through funeral service. They built upon those relationships by being active in the community and building strong relationships with people of all walks of life. Both Bill and Delbert felt it was an honor to serve families by providing the professional support they needed in their time of loss. This commitment is ever-present today in the continued operations of Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home.
Delbert Bowers, community leader
Besides being a successful business leader, Delbert was also very dedicated to many civic organizations. He was a life member of VFW Post 3892 in Harker Heights, DAV Post 147 in Killeen and American Legion Post 223 in Killeen. He was involved in the Killeen Evening Lions Club, Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce, Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce and Copperas Cove Chamber of Commerce. He was also a member of the Elks Lodge of Falls City, Nebraska, for more than 65 years. Delbert died in December 2016 at the age 87.
