To Dr. Alexander Rowland and extended Family: We are so sorry for the loss of your father. What a legacy he has left behind and memories to cherish with all. Your family are in our prayers. May God Bless each of you and may your memories bring you peace.

One of the most interesting men I had ever met. My father (whom passed at 91) and I both had Carpel Tunnel surgery performed by Dr. Rowland decades ago. Ironically, I just had significant hand surgery done, successfully, by a young doctor, and I was relating stories to him about Dr. Rowland. My Dad and Dr. Rowland talked about their football playing days (and prowess!!), farming, etc.. I am sorry about his passing, but what a fabulous life for such an extremely interesting man.

My condolences to the Rowland family. Dr. Rowland treated my father for many years, he would give my dad injections in his fingers for trigger finger until his son Dr. Alexander Rowland took over. May the good lord bless you all during this difficult time.

Suzanne and I send our deepest condolences. What great memories we will always have...a true gentleman and a giant in his medical profession. Remembering my years welcoming him in his classic Olds 98 convertible on our service drive and driving him to his offices always enjoying conversation. And remembering him and his lovely Marion on weekend trips to Hunt as guests of Bob and Helen West. A great family man and great teacherwith a great legacy. He will be missed.

I remember your Dad just as described - always active, smiling, and devoted to his family. So sorry for your loss.
