In loving memory of Mr. Jimmie Ronald Rowland, 72, of Hazlehurst, died June 27 at Memorial Health Hospital in Savannah.
Mr. Rowland was born Sept. 27, 1949, in Jeff Davis County.
He is preceded in death by his father, Roscoe Marion (Little Bud) Rowland, and his wife, Oveda Dianne Rowland, grandson, Zachery Douglas and nephew, Johnny Buford.
He was of the Pentecostal faith. His favorite hobby was hunting (until he said he couldn’t drag one out of the woods), loved watching Nascar, and collecting things. He loved his fur babies but loved his family with all his heart. He was one you could call anytime and he would come. His family always came first for him and he will be truly sadly missed.
