Darrell R. Rowland

March 9, 1925 ~ July 21, 2018 (age 93)
Darrell R. Rowland, 93, of Jacksonville, went to meet his heavenly Father, on Saturday, July 21, 2018. He was born on March 9, 1925, in Washita, AR, to the late Lum W. and Viva Montgomery Rowland. He served in the United States Army during World War II and in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. He was a talented mechanic who could fix anything. He enjoyed camping and traveling with his family, with yearly visits to Lake Ouachita and Destin, Florida. Darrell was one of Western Sizzlin's most loyal customers, having eaten there daily for over fifty years. He was much loved by his family and many friends.
He had a strong faith. He was a member of Word Aflame Fellowship (formerly known as the First United Pentecostal Church of LR) for over fifty years and attended the First Pentecostal Church of NLR for the past thirteen years.
