About

Since 1972, Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home has provided top-class service to families in the Killeen, Texas, community. Our funeral directors are dedicated to providing customized services to meet the needs of every family, understanding that each memorialization should be as unique as the person it celebrates. We work closely with families to create one-of-a-kind tributes that honor life.

Our funeral home and services

Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home offers families exceptional service, a comforting environment and a highly professional and caring staff. The funeral home was reconfigured and updated inside and out in 2018. Today it is the most inviting and modern in the Killeen area.

A large funeral chapel holds up to 250 guests. A hospitality room—for a friends-and-family gathering before or after a service—seats up to 40. Two large staterooms accommodate visitations.

Whether you'd like to arrange for a traditional funeral service or are interested in a contemporary celebration of life, plan to have a large gathering or a more intimate service, our compassionate team works with you to ensure all of your family's needs and wishes are met. From a catered barbecue lunch to an afternoon ice cream social, from a funeral with full military honors to a cremation ceremony with a lively toast, we arrange personalized and memorable memorials.

Planning in advance

At Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home, we recognize that funeral arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming. In addition to assisting during an immediate time of need, our funeral directors specialize in working with families to plan ahead. By preparing in advance, you provide a sense of relief, peace of mind and comfort for your loved ones while ensuring your wishes are met and your budget is kept. We are here to discuss these options should you wish to do so.

History

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.

"Everything was Beautiful"

jd-power-verified-checkmark Verified Burial & Memorial Service Customer

October 2020

"No one can prepare you for the loss of a loved one, but with the right funeral director the process doesn't have to be unbearable. Director Emanuel Tucker made the entire process peaceful for my family. When I felt overwhelmed he provided consolation. His attention to detail allowed us to provide my father with a service that was a reflection of his life, a true veteran memorial. I would recommend Dignity Memorial in Killeen because of Emanuel Tucker. If all of your Funeral Directors are as efficient as he, you are truly providing an incomparable service. Our recently departed deserve a memorable memorial."
