Bounds Funeral Home

"Continuing a Tradition of Caring" and creating "Enduring Memories"

In 1877, George C. Hill, a cabinetmaker, founded Bounds Funeral Home, Inc., as Hill and Johnson Funeral Home. George's son, Franklin Hill built the current building in 1935 and changed the name to Hill Funeral Home. The two-story brick building was the first funeral home of its kind in the area.

Franklin Hill and his wife Louise owned and operated the funeral home with their two sons, George and Frank Hill. After Franklin died, his wife and sons continued to operate the business. In 1970, with the unexpected death of both sons, the Hill Funeral Home was sold to Gerald C. Bounds and Norman T. Baker. At that time, the name of the business was changed to Hill-Baker-Bounds Funeral Home. After Louise Hill died in 1980, the name changed again to Baker and Bounds Funeral Home.

In 1989, Norman Baker retired, dissolving the partnership of Baker and Bounds. At this time Gerald C. Bounds formed a professional association establishing, Bounds Funeral Home, P.A.

In July of 1998, Gerald Bounds retired placing a long time employee and former general manager of the funeral home, B. Keith Phippin, as director of operations at the facility.

Phippin and the entire staff of Bounds Funeral Home serve the community according to the funeral home's motto: "Continuing a Tradition of Caring." Caring, integrity and excellent service are traditions that the families on the Delmarva Peninsula have come to expect and trust from Bounds Funeral Home since 1877.
