Our New Conner & Koch Funeral Home Blog

Our Blog

Welcome to Conner & Koch’s New Blog!

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Thank you for taking the time to check out our new blog. A quality blog requires commitment and effort, and this is a challenge we would like to take on again because it is a great way to connect with families from our community. Our new blog looks to provide families with relevant, informative, and interesting content. Our blog will consist of educational and entertaining articles to keep you up to date with news about our funeral home and trends within the industry.

Before we begin publishing these informative and educational articles, we think that it’s important to reintroduce who we are, what we do, and how we got here. With that being said, let’s get started.

Conner & Koch’s Heritage: How Did We Get Here?

Since 1968, Conner & Koch Funeral Home has served the families of Bellbrook, Centerville, Kettering, Xenia, Hamilton, and Dayton. Our funeral home was first founded by H. William Tobias and originally named Tobias Memorial Home.

Upon his retirement in 1986, Mr. Tobias sold the funeral home to Steve and Kathy Connors. The name of the funeral home was changed to Tobias-Conner Funeral Home. Together, Steve and Kathy ran the funeral home until 1999 when they sold it to their son Brian Koch and his wife Donna.

Community involvement has always been something that is important to our funeral home and staff. Brian has dedicated much of his life to community service. He formerly served at his church as Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Promise Keepers Men's Fellowship Teacher. He currently serves as an interim Lead Pastor at Marshall Road Church of God. Together, Brian and Donna are members of the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Chamber of Commerce, Bellbrook Cemetery Board, National Funeral Directors Association, Ohio Funeral Directors Association and the Greater Montgomery County Funeral Directors Association.

Since our doors opened in 1968, our funeral home has always had a passion to create beautiful services to celebrate the life of your loved one. We honor their legacy by taking you and your family on a walk through their path in life.
