OBITUARY

Floyd Calvin Rowe

August 25, 1931January 6, 2021

Rowe – Floyd Calvin Rowe passed away on January 6, 2021 in Vernon at the age of 89. Born August 25, 1931 in Lashburn, Saskatchewan. Dad was predeceased by Mae Rowe in 1995 and Phyllis Green-Rowe in 2020. Dad is survived by Gayle Rowe (Pat) of Whitecourt, Alberta, Debby Rowe (Bill) of Summerland, BC and Colleen Rowe (Steve) of Victoria, BC. Dad is also mourned and remembered by David Green (Judy) of Bathurst, New Brunswick, Susan Green of Fernie, Debbie McLean (Stephen) of Bathurst, New Brunswick and Anna Green (Dan) of Armstrong, BC as well as many grandkids, great grandkids and pretty much anyone who met him. Dad’s early years were in Victoria where he married Mae and went on to raise 3 girls. He was the proud owner of Rowe’s Quality Meats for many years. Summers were spent at the family cabin on Cowichan Lake, BC where there was lots of sailing, horseshoes, “gong shows” and of course the “happy hours”. In the winters we made more great memories on family ski trips to various mountains in BC. Dad and Phyllis spent many summers in Bathurst, surrounded by loving family and good friends. There was plenty of horseshoes and bonfires on the beach as well as golf at the local golf club. Dad was a proud Free Mason and sang lead in Barbershop for years. He loved games of any sort and always, always lots of laughs. Dad will be greatly missed by the staff and his newest friends at The Victorian Residence in Vernon. We are eternally grateful to everyone at The Victorian for loving dad so much and going that extra mile to make dad’s last years so happy. You all helped keep the twinkle in dad’s eye during the lonely Covid times. Oh, and by the way….the shuffleboard trophy is back up for grabs! Thank you to Drs. Hofer and Woods for your compassionate care. Thank you to Nargiza (night nurse) at the Vernon Hospital and Deanna (day nurse) at Vernon Hospital. Dad had incredible care at The Victorian who went above and beyond for dad. Dad was loved by all.

Great crib player, beat us three games in a row on the 3rd of Jan. and enjoyed every minute of the beating💖. We are proud to include ourselves in the group of “new friends” at the Victorian. He will be greatly missed here, he kept us laughing through many dinners.

Uncle Floyd was such a kind and gentle man. When he and Aunt Phyllis would come home to New Brunswick in the summers we always had good times and lots of laughs . Dances in New Denmark at our Danish celebration June 19th and he always had the dominoes nearby for a great game of fun. He will be sadly missed. Love you Uncle Floyd.

I will think often of you Uncle Floyd and always remember the day you took Jimmy and I out fishing ! I got to steer the boat! Time spent with you and the family were very special ...a calm spot in our stormy life.

Of course, my fondest memory of my Uncle Floyd involved Lake Cowichan for the summer holidays. He found out that I couldn’t swim and insisted that if he threw me off the pier a miracle would happen being that I would either swim or sink. For the rest of the summer, I avoided him when I was near the water. We laughed about it many years later when he came to visit me in Edmonton.

Uncle Floyd, I miss all of the Rowe boys who were my uncles especially the baby.

I have so many memories of being up at the cabin one of my favourites was singing songs around the campfire.
