Adam R. Walker Licensed Funeral Director & Owner Adam@ConroyTullyWalker.com

Together with his wife, Adam has been honored to serve the Greater Portland community since purchasing Conroy-Tully Walker in 2014.

Adam has worked in the funeral profession since 2002, graduating from Worsham College of Mortuary Science in 2008. He has a genuine desire to serve each family with the highest consistent level of service excellence that Conroy-Tully Walker is known for.

Adam recognizes that families only have one chance to say goodbye, and one chance to do it right. As such, he has sought out to build the Conroy-Tully Walker Team with some of the best funeral professionals in the state. The confidence he has in his team allows every staff member the decision making flexibility to do anything it takes to serve our families well.

Adam recognizes the importance of active and positive community involvement. As such, he is on the board of the Maine Funeral Directors Association, a member of the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Knights of Columbus Council 101 and will be inducted into the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre. In addition,  he is a former board member of Hospice of Southern Maine and  The Center for Grieving Children. He and his family are communicants of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and they proudly support several community events, programs and organizations.

Outside of his service to our community, Adam is a family man. Whether it's boating, hiking or walking the beach, or watching the Patriots, he enjoys spending all of his free time with his wife, Caitlin, their daughter, Eleanor, and their beloved pooch, Newbie.

Caitlin M. Walker Community Outreach & Certified Life Celebrant Cait@ConroyTullyWalker.com

Caitlin (MacDonald) Walker entered Funeral Service in 2015 after spending the past several years as a Special Education teacher with a focus in Behavioral Disabilities.

For Cait, the transition from teaching to Funeral Service has been easy. She’s been able to apply the strengths that she has as a teacher into helping families and creating personalized services through special touches and details. Making sure that each service is personalized and meaningful to the family is of the utmost importance. It is a true honor for Cait to not only help families during the services, but also well after the services have ended.

While Caitlin wears several hats at our Funeral Home, one of the roles she enjoys the most is assisting families with planning a uniquely personalized Celebration of Life. Caitlin has received specialized training to officiate services that are truly unique to the life lived. For those who wish to have a Celebration of Life ceremony, Caitlin works closely with our families to learn about the individual and incorporates special music, stories and memories to create a one of a kind service of remembrance.

In addition to her role as a Certified Life Celebrant, Cait oversees all planning of our community events. She is responsible for the coordination of our Annual Outdoor Memorial Day Mass, Candlelight Service of Remembrance, First Responder Appreciation Cookout, Annual School Supplies Drive and several other community outreach programs.

She is actively involved with The Center for Grieving Children and the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce.

When she is not serving our community, Caitlin enjoys spending time with her huge family, close circle of friends, and especially her husband Adam, their daughter, Eleanor and the slobbery family pooch, Newbie.
