A Tradition of Excellence
The Bohm Mortuary was founded in 1927 by William Bohm, and his son, Clarence. Like H.E. Turner & Co., the firm was originally a combination furniture/undertaking store located on Center Street. As trends changed within the funeral business, the firm moved in 1930, to 308 East Main Street, where it remains today.
Clarence ran the funeral home until his death in 1953 with the help of William Glynn and Vic Powell. Tony Cecere was employed with the firm from 1940-1960. After Clarence's death, William Glynn assumed the manager's role. During this time, Richard was a student at Cornell University and Robert was serving with the Navy. Dick graduated from Cornell and received his funeral director's license and remained with the funeral home until Bob's discharge from the Navy. Bob was licensed in 1957, after which, Dick left for the Priesthood, leaving Bob manager of the business. He remained until H.E. Turner & Co., Inc. Funeral Home, owned by Jim Smith, purchased the firm in 1993, renaming it the Bohm-Calarco-Smith Funeral Home.
Bob continued to work until his death in 2004.
In October of 2012, Mr. Smith transferred ownership of the firm to his two sons, Justin D. Calarco-Smith, Joshua J. Smith and his longtime trusted friend and employee, Randy W. McIntire. The partners are joined in the business by Steven L. Johnson. Together we have over 115 years of funeral service experience.
