of Searcy, AR
December 14, 1968 - March 8, 2021
Kenneth E. Rowe, 52, of Searcy, Arkansas passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer and other serious health issues at his home on March 8, 2021 surrounded by his family. He began his life in Searcy, Arkansas on December 14, 1968 with his parents Ralph Edward and Phyllis Noble Rowe. He was preceded in death by his wife, Martha Barker Rowe, his daddy, Ralph Edward Rowe and one grandson, Boston Rowe.Left to cherish his memory is his mom, Phyllis Rowe; four sons, Steven (Katie) Rowe, Jamie (Ashley) Rowe, Brandon (Danielle) Wilson; Kenneth "KJ" (Haley) Rowe, Jr; three daughters, Natasha (Matthew) Dennis, Kimberly (Chris) Noles and Diana (Brandon) Snelson; twenty-three grandchildren; one brother, James Harold Noble and two sisters, Kady (Chris) Burkett and Phyllis Ann (Alford "Bud") Barker along with many nieces and nephews and other extended family and many friends.Many words have been used to describe Kenneth as "a jack of all trades and master of none", "gentle giant", "family man", but the one that held a special place in his heart was his grandchildren called him their "Super-Hero." By trade he was a heavy equipment operator and diesel mechanic. He worked for several companies in the area using his skills, but also was self-employed much of the time. He was always willing to help anyone that needed what he could do for them. During the recent snow, his family remembered that Kenneth would have normally been out helping to clear the roads and keeping everyone's equipment running. His family's fondest memories were that he was a loving son, brother, dad and pawpaw. He was extremely giving and was said that he would give the shirt off his back to anyone that needed it. He was known to be a helpful man not only to his family, but to anyone who needed it. His favorite thing to do was to spend every moment that he could with his family. He loved to go fishing, camping and hunting with his dad and wife as often as he could and went on to continue those times of enjoyment to the rest of his family. His kids say that there is not a creek, river, lake or any other type of body of water around this area that they did not go fishing in at some point and time. Services for Mr. Rowe will be Visitation from 6:00 8:00 PM on Thursday, March 11, 2021 and Funeral Service on Friday, March 12, 2021 at 10:00 AM with all services being held at Roller-Daniel Funeral Home Chapel.

I've known Kenneth and his family my whole life. We all went to school together and rode the bus. I can remember us all hanging out together. Haven't seen him in years though. Got reconnected on facebook a couple years back. Was sad to hear of his passing.

"Kenneth Rowe" well there is not enough words to describe just how much of a loving, kind, thoughtful man he was. He was always respectful to everyone. He was a hard working man that loved and cared deeply for his family. I'm glad I got the chance to meet Mr. Rowe and spend time with him and listening to his stories he told me. He had a voice that would melt your heart when he sang and I know he is using that in Heaven right now singing praises. He was always smiling and making others smile. My heart goes out to his mother Phyliss, Sisters, Children, Grandchildren and the rest of the family! It's hard to believe that he is gone and he will truly be missed by so many. Prayers for the family that God gives you strength and peace during your time of sorrow. Kenneth you may be gone but you will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
