Rowland, John  
John Dillard Rowland John Dillard Rowland, age 87, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 23, 2014 at the Rosewood Assisted Living Community in Fort Oglethorpe, GA where he had lived since July, 2012. John was born on November 3, 1927 in Tampa, FL, to the late William Mayson Rowland and Lola Grace Dabbs Rowland. He was preceded in death by his parents and his only sibling, Jack Meredith Rowland (1933-2005). A lifelong bachelor, John is survived by three nieces, Jennifer Lynn Rowland Campbell (David) of Lebanon, TN; Cassaundra Lea Rowland Gladden of Hendersonville, TN; Sheridan Lanee Rowland Allen (Harry) of Pottstown, PA; and one nephew, Jack M. Rowland of Chattanooga, TN. He also leaves behind trusted close family member, Myriam Hernandez of Chattanooga, TN as well as two very dear and treasured friends, Art & Linda de Tonnancourt of Pensacola, FL. While born and raised in Tampa, John and his family relocated to Pensacola in the early 1940's where he lived until July 2012 when failing health motivated him to move to Fort Oglethorpe, GA to be closer to his family. Soon after graduating from high school, John served in the U.S. Army from 1946-1949, primarily as a cook at Fort Richardson in Anchorage, Alaska. Upon completion of his military service, Mr. Rowland attended college at UT-Knoxville where he earned a BS in Agricultural Science in 1955. He settled into life as an active member of his Pensacola community and a reliable employee with long tenures at Barn's Grocery in Ensley, Dewy Carter Nursery in Pensacola and with the groundskeeping crew at West Florida Hospital in Pensacola. A Charter Member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Pensacola for over 50 years, John worked diligently to support both the physical and spiritual growth of the congregation. Through his work with the UUCP and the global Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, he affirmed and implemented his belief that wherever there is life, there is hope and purpose. Ever the humanitarian, he never waivered in his reverence for all life or in his belief that God exists perpetually within the human spirit. John was a lifelong devotee and proponent of the importance of higher education, intellectual reasoning and scientific progress for the betterment of humankind. A cat lover, he also advocated heavily for the humane treatment of animals. A reader and learner, John's favorite book throughout his life remained The Story of Mankind by Hendrik Van Loon. The family wishes to thank the staff & administration at the Rosewood Assisted Living Community, Fort Oglethorpe, GA and Tapestry Hospice of Calhoun, GA for the excellent care and attention they afforded our "UJ" Express your condolences in our guestbook at pnj.com/obits
