A few days prior to my husband's sudden passing a year and a half ago, we kept note of this service through word of mouth from a friend while comparing price packages. In the late evening hours after my husband's passing, Mr Bowman's daughter helped tremendously over the phone with my questions, with an understanding of inexperienced loved ones burying their family. That brief conversation settled all doubts making the final decision as to choosing the right service. I trust in their honesty, their integrity, their compassionate, patient approach making everything clear, not minding us laboring over questions, and are swift to provide workable solutions. I find the entire family and staff truly dedicated to doing this work in the merciful context their service entails. Dealing with government agencies at a time like this would have been more than a nightmare, but at Bowman's they helped sort out which important agencies our family should contact, helped with submitting anything they can handle, pointing family needing aid in the right directions for the imminent future, especially for me, the widow. They were quick with helping to get the doctor's endorsement for cause of death on the death certificate after the doctors omitted the entry in the original report. This month I met again with the Bowman family and staff completing my own passing arrangements for when it occurs. I am saying a simple 'Thank you'. God bless you and your family.

When my Father passed away a few months ago, Bowman Funeral took excellent care of us. They were professional in every way and very sensitive to our family's needs and our feelings. Gary Bowman and his entire staff were great to work with. We are extremely satisfied with the services they provided and the very reasonable cost for everything. I feel that Bowman Funeral is the best mortician and funeral home in Boise.

I had to plan a funeral for someone currently in Boise to be buried in San Angelo, Texas. Not only did Gary Bowman treat me with the greatest support and service, he actually negotiated with a funeral home in Texas on my behalf and saved my family $2500. This is the only place to even consider when having to make those hard decisions!! Thank you Gary for all of your help and support.


In late February 2015, our loved one passed away in Meridian, Idaho. We were very comforted by expressions of compassion and sincerity shown by Gary Bowman and Staff during this difficult time. We found their time given to us was unhurried and helpful while making end of life decisions. Several years ago we lost another family member and Gary Bowman gave excellent advise when handling an out of state matter. His expertise and knowledge were beneficial during this time particularly his awareness and experience when communicating and coordinating with all persons involved. Without fail, Gary Bowman gives 100 percent to each of the persons who seek his services. We have found the Bowman Funeral Home to go above and beyond what would normally be expected in difficult times. We were consoled with Gary’s integrity and attention to detail exhibited at this time. We will always remember Gary as being honest and helpful to our family. The Vincent and Wright Family Dallas, Texas
