About Holmes-Watkins Funeral Home


The Holmes Funeral Home has its origins dating back to 1925, when Mark Holmes first opened his family-owned funeral home. Through three generations, the Holmes family has established a strong tradition of caring and an unsurpassed level of service. They are proudly ushering in the fourth generation of the family with Nathan Holmes, Mark’s great-grandson, recently joining the firm. As they look to the future, together, the Holmes family has chosen new caretakers to carry on their family legacy. Glenn Blumenstein and Brian Romanowski, owners of the well-respected Potter Funeral Home in Willimantic have become the new owners of the Holmes-Watkins Funeral Home. The Holmes family chose Glenn and Brian partly because of how well they transitioned the Potter Funeral Home and found ways to respectfully improve and modernize Potter’s already strong tradition of fine service. Their work has been so well received in Willimantic that Potter Funeral Home was named The Chamber of Commerce, Windham Region’s 2017 Business of the Year. The Holmes family has the utmost respect and confidence in Glenn and Brian. They are excited and proud to know that the Holmes-Watkins Funeral Homes will continue to serve their families "Where Personal Consideration is Still a Tradition.”
