This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Ronnie W Rowlee, 63 years old, who passed away on March 20, 2019 from heart failure. Ron was born as a twin on November 23, 1955 to Frank and Viola (Iverson) Rowlee.  Ron was 1 of 10 children.  He was preceded in death by his parents, his half-brothers Carl, Donald, and Gerald Gebhardt, half-sister Darlene (Chuck) Blazina, a step-grandson Austin Leis, and a brother Toney Rowlee.  Ronnie is survived by his wife of 39 years, Thelma, his step-daughter Shelly (Steve) Nyman, daughter Tessa (Dustin) Sherman, son Ronnie, step-granddaughters Hailey and Vanessa Leis, grandsons Theodore and Gabriel Sherman, half-sister Delores, brothers Rodaney and Frank (Donna) Rowlee, sister Kristine (Ronald) Reaves, and many many nieces, nephews, cousins and loved ones.    

Ron graduated from Black River Falls High School and joined the Navy.  After the Navy, Ron had a few different careers but his passion was always continuing on the tradition of produce farming.  Ron enjoyed this until his heart complications made it too difficult and he retired at the age of 50. Most recently, Ron enjoyed donating his time to serve as the Chairman for the Township of Manchester.      

Ron enjoyed Friday night fish frys with his wife, loving on his grand-sons, hunting, shooting guns and playing casino games on the computer.  

We will remember Ron for his kind heart and his sharp mind.
