James David Rowe Obituary
Rowe, James David
1994 - 2018
James David Rowe, 23, of Granville, now rests peacefully in the arms of God Our Father (June 11, 2018). James lived life to the fullest, always with an energy and desire to make others smile or laugh – and he did just that with his handsome face, a million-dollar smile, and those deep brown soul-filled eyes. James meant THE WORLD to his family, and they to him. James' intelligence, curiosity, and bottomless thinking took him down many paths in life. Sometimes ending at peaks and other times in valleys. Regardless of the finish, James never stopped loving, believing, working hard, or striving to overcome life's obstacles. He attended grades 1 – 9 at Canal Winchester Schools before moving to Granville where he resided with his dad and finished his high school education. James enjoyed working and hunting outdoors, watching sports, buying clothes!, listening to music, buying shoes!, reading an occasional novel, buying cologne!, and watching movies. James is preceded in death by his uncles Gregory Rowe and Don Carl, and grandfathers Perry 'Pete' Rutherford, Gobel Rowe, and James 'Jim' Miller. Survived by his loving and faithful "momma", Michelle (Rutherford) Cox; loving and devoted, father Glenn Rowe; step-father, Jim Cox; brothers, Justin Cox and Trevor Cox; sister, Jessica Cox; grandmothers, Bonnie Rutherford and Mary Miller; uncles, Ed (Julie) Rutherford and Willard Carl; aunts, Bernadette Rowe, Juanita (Melvin) Herb, Murriel (Jim) Patrick; cousins, Eddie Rutherford, Sara Rutherford, Sue Adkins, Jason Carl, and Shannen Schucker; his faithful canine companion, Zeus; and many extended family and friends. Family will receive friends Friday, June 15 from 10am-12noon at COTNER FUNERAL HOME, 7369 East Main Street, Reynoldsburg, Ohio. James' celebration of life service will follow at 12pm. Pastors Jeff Greenway, Carl Wiley, and Ed Rutherford officiating. Interment Franklin Hills Cemetery, Lithopolis, Ohio.
