Obituary for Alvis Lee "Red" Rowland

Alvis Lee “Red” Rowland died at his home on Sunday, October 11, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. He was 79.

A native of Winona, Mississippi, born August 25, 1941, he was the son of the late John Louis and Alma Farrell Rowland. He was raised outside of Indianola. Red was a great story teller and prankster but his life experiences made him very wise. From this wisdom he taught his family and friends life lessons that instilled confidence, work ethic and strength and would tell it straight: even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. He lived the example of what it was like to be a good friend. He was a good father and mentor having raised many kids throughout his life. He will be dearly missed.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brothers, Otis Eugene Rowland, John Howard Rowland, Hugh David Rowland, Stanley Harris Rowland, Jewell Douglas Rowland, and Robert Earl Rowland; and sisters, Janette Brown and Robin Rowland.

He is survived by his wife, Debbie Rowland; daughters, Meleney Lewis, Cindy Toten (Jerry), Dian Rowland, Amanda Howard (Michael), and Suzy Tucker (Catherine); son, Ty Tucker (Tobin); brothers, William Duncan Rowland, Grady Rowland (Judy), and Kenneth Rowland; sisters, Mary Joe Hearn (Benjie), Betty Ann Pruitt, and Linda Smart; grandsons that he and Debbie were raising, Christopher Johnson, Shaun Williams, Noah Sutton, and Isaiah “Zac” Howard; grandchildren, Alison Davis (Kevin), Shaunea Lewis, Ryan Lewis, Ashley Chase (Joey), and Vincent Zito; great grandchildren, Keagen Davis, Chesnee Evans, Cece Evans, Kathryn Evans, Karalina Chase, Jocelyn Chase, and Remington Faye Zito; and a host of nieces and
nephews whom he loved and loved him; and other relatives and friends.

Visitation will be held from 3 PM until 5 PM on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at Beulah Memorial Baptist Church, 14000 MS-22, in Bolton. A sunset service will follow at 6 PM in Bolton Cemetery, 6000 Old Hwy 80, with Rev. Keith Westbrook officiating.
