History & Staff

In 1956 Samuel J. Scobee opened Scobee Funeral Home in a building approximately at the corner of U.S. Hwy. #1 and S.E. 4th Avenue in Boynton Beach with L. Don Combs, L.F.D. as the General Manager.

In 1959, Mr. Scobee moved the Funeral Home to the present location in Boynton Beach at the corner of U.S. Hwy. #1 and N.E. 15th Avenue. The Funeral Home also served the local community as the only ambulance service in the town for years.

In just a few years, Mr. Combs was brought in as a partner and the name of the funeral home changed to Scobee-Combs Funeral Home.

In the following years, there were many changes. As Mr. Scobee moved toward retirement, Mr. Combs assumed an even greater role in the Funeral Home becoming sole owner and hiring Michael W. Bowden, L.F.D. as General Manager in 1970. He expanded the Funeral Home in 1971, more than doubling the size of the Funeral Home. To better serve the residents of Boynton Beach and the surrounding area he installed a Crematory on site in 1976.

Mr. Bowden became a partner in the firm in 1977 and became President when Mr. Combs retired in 1991. At that time, Timothy W. Hensley, L.F.D., a longtime employee became a partner in the Funeral Home. Shortly thereafter, the name of the Funeral Home was changed to Scobee-Combs-Bowden Funeral Home & Crematory.

We are proud of our heritage of being family owned and operated throughout our 57 years of serving the greater Boynton Beach community. We continue to serve the community with the same theme and priority,“To treat the families we serve with the same dignity and respect as we would want to be treated ourselves”.
