September 7, 1925 - September 14, 2021
Adolph Jay Furrer passed away at the age of 96 in his home on September 14, 2021. His parents Adolph Furrer and Verna Furrer Jamison preceded him in death along with his loving wife of 53 years Doris Jean Furrer and his brother Eldon Chick Furrer. He is survived by his son Gary Chick Furrer, son Larry Jay Furrer and his wife Sandy, son Terry W. Furrer and his daughter Cindy K Furrer. He also was survived by his grandson Chase Jay Furrer and his wife Maryann and his Great Granddaughter Maurine. He was looking forward to meeting his next great grandson Frankie in February. He was also survived by his Son Steve Rowe and his wife Metha and granddaughter Sherri Rowe Martell and her husband Rob and their children Chris and Matthew, and his grandson Scott Rowe and his wife Annette and their children Luke and Elsa.He was loved by his many nieces and nephews and their children and other family and friends and will be remembered by them for his deep devotion to all of his family. He loved all of his brothers- and sisters- in- laws who he loved with a passion and missed terribly when they passed away before him. He has two surviving family from his generation Jessie Furrer and Everett Smith. He left his earthly body and is now dancing and partying with all of his friends and relations who preceded him in heaven. He was a World War II veteran having served in the US Navy on board of the USS Mitchell DE-43 and the USS Arkansas BB-33. He worked in construction until he retired in 1990. He built or remodeled every home he lived in and never met a stranger. He was host to many Fourth of July Bar B Ques and had as many at 200 people attend because he was a great cook. He knew how to party and have fun. He will be remembered for his love of his country, his family and his many friends. His one regret was that he had seen so many precede him in death. He believed in Jesus Christ as his savior and always asked for a blessing for all of the good things in his life. He battled Heart Disease, Prostate Cancer and recently an ulcer on his throat. His last wish was to spend the remainder of his days surrounded by his family at home instead of being in the hospital. Everyone who met him knew him as a loyal friend.A visitation will be 6:00pm until 8:00pm on Monday, September 20, 2021, at Roller-Chenal Funeral Home, 13801 Chenal Parkway, Little Rock, AR (501) 224-8300.
