He is preceded in death by his parents, Guy Clifford Rowland, Sr. and Virginia (nee Beasley) Rowland. He is survived by his wife, Myong Cha; son, Guy (Michelle) Rowland, of HI; and his sister, Margaret (the late James “Zip”) Zimmerman.

Guy spent his life serving his country. He was a past Post Commander in Korea where he met his wife 43 years ago and then served and retired from the US Navy. Guy was a former member of the VFW Post 1117 in Caseyville. He enjoyed spending time with friends and riding his Harley motorcycle but also enjoyed peaceful, reflective time with his family. He was a career military man with great attention to detail but also had an incredible sense of humor. His kind heart and ability to make those around him laugh will always be remembered.

Arrangements are pending following cremation. A memorial service will be held locally as well as in Honolulu, HI where his cremains will be placed to rest. Expressions of condolence may be offered at www.valhallagardensandfuneralhome.com.
