A Different Family. The Same Commitment.

For over a century, families in the Boulder area have known and trusted the Howe family name for compassionate attention in times of loss. Albert Edward (A.E.) Howe began serving the needs of the Greater Boulder community as early as 1909 as a partner in Holley and Howe Funeral Directors on Pearl Street, and as the first Boulder County Coroner from 1914-1934 (the first of many Howe’s to be elected to the position for over 74 continuous years).

Over the generations, A.E. Howe’s sons, Norman, George, Theodore, and Carl, and grandsons operated funeral homes in the area.  This included Norman’s son, Darrell Howe, who completed mortuary school in 1958, and with his father purchased Henning Mortuary in Lafayette, which later became Darrell Howe Mortuary. 

While a corporation briefly owned our funeral home, it has returned to family ownership under the direction of Dennis and Kim Bridges.

The Bridges family is committed to carrying on Darrell Howe Mortuary’s legacy of service by continuing to serve families compassionately, with attention to detail, affordability, and by offering services that further enhance the meaning and value of your tribute. 

The Bridges family brings to the community decades of experience as funeral directors and a single pledge:  to honor the legacy of the Howe name by offering the highest level of personal service to the community. 

Our family and professional, licensed staff are here whenever you need us. That’s a promise.
