Hershel A. Rowland

Hershel A. Rowland 84, passed away peacefully of natural causes Sunday, March 24, 2013, in Port Charlotte, Fla. Known to family and friends as H.A. or Andy, he was born July of 1928 in Garvin, Okla., and graduated from Marked Tree High School in Arkansas in 1945.

Andy retired in 1993 after a 40-year career as an Operating Engineer in highway construction, where he worked for Madonna Construction Company in San Luis Obispo.

During his retirement, he enjoyed gardening, sailing and odd jobs running heavy equipment. His favorite quote was “you should never push dirt uphill.”

We will miss you and you will forever be in our hearts and never forgotten.

Andy is survived by his wife of 40 years, Barbara Rowland; daughter-in-law, Michele Rowland-Applegate of Texas; sons Vance (Shelia) of Alabama, Randy (Millie) of California, Cheyenne of California and Dusty (Karen) of Alabama; stepdaughter Debbie Thompson (John); stepson Brian Greer of California; adopted son Stanley Naylor (Mary) of Alabama; many cousins, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and longtime family friend, Carol Stacy.

He was predeceased by his father, George A. Rowland; mother, Tula B. Rowland; sister, Vicki Davis; and son, Rick Rowland.

A family memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a memorial may be made to Tidewell Hospice Port Charlotte House, 1158 Veronica St., Port Charlotte, FL 33952.
