Meet our President / Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mr. Lynn Conner, Jr.
Mr. Lynn Conner, Jr. is a giant in the industry who stands in a class all by himself.
A native of Waxahachie, Texas, Mr. Conner was anointed with a calling to not only serve families but help them in their most difficult times.
Mr. Conner studied and trained under the late Dr. Gregory W. Spencer (owner and founder of Gregory W. Spencer Funeral Directors, Fort Worth, Texas) who was the epitome of a Funeral Director. Dr. Spencer and Mr. Conner had a relationship like Elijah and Elisha in the Bible and Mr. Conner received a double portion of the knowledge and training that Dr. Spencer gave him. Working under him and standing on his shoulders, Mr. Conner was equipped to handle any level of service.
As a child, it was always a dream that he would one day open the doors to his very own funeral home. Having faith and believing in God, his prayers were not only answered but favor was granted upon Mr. Conner.
Mr. Conner served and assisted funeral directors at different firms before opening the doors to Precious Memories Mortuary. Many people across the United States has called upon him and the Lynn Conner Elite Guard just to see him march down the aisle and carry the casket on his shoulders with poise and class. He is also known to many as The High-stepper.
Besides offering first class services, Mr. Conner talents goes far beyond measures. He is a florist (Flowers By Lynn) and takes time making every floral arrangement with the utmost care taking into consideration every small detail of the design. He customizes every service differently and designs every program specially for every family.
As CEO / President, Mr. Conner fully devoted his time to making sure every family is treated with dignity and respect. His goal is to turn frowns into smiles, and turn ordinary memories into Precious Memories.
