Passed suddenly away on November 3, 2021, Calvin Donald Rowe. He was 74 years of age. He was predeceased by his parents Cecil and Hazel and his brother Roy. He leaves to mourn his wife Sharon; sons Kent (Tanya), Kirk (Lisa); daughter Kimberly (Neil); sister Florence; brother David; grandchildren Samantha, Michael, Kira, Kirisa and Tiffany; and a large circle of other relatives and friends.
Calvin was born in Botwood on Nov 12, 1946. He married the love of his life, Sharon in 1968, and together they raised three children. Calvin retired from Abitibi Bowater in 2004, and truly enjoyed this chapter of his life to its fullest; spending time with his children, grandchildren and family.
Our father will be remembered as always being elbows and heart deep into helping someone, family, neighbor or friend. In the last few years Calvin was a member of the Botwood Lions Club, and expressed regret that he had not joined the club earlier. He made many friends, who will dearly miss him.
Calvin could easily get those close to him to laugh, and was a constant source of joy for everyone around him. He was always ready to prank a friend, and he has left us with many wonderful memories. He will be missed beyond words.
Donations to family in lieu of flowers are greatly appreciated.
Gravesite prayers will be held to say farewell to our husband, father, grandfather & friend at Botwood Community Cemetery on Monday Nov 8th at 11am. Friends are welcome to join us, the family asks that social distancing be maintained in accordance with COVID restrictions.
A Memorial Tree was planted for Calvin
