Roger Doyle Rowe, of Blackwell, passed away Wednesday morning, Sept. 19, 2018, in the O.U. Medical Center in Oklahoma City at the age of 58 years.
Roger was born on Oct. 8, 1959, in Blackwell, to Harold and Lorene Crawford Rowe. He attended and graduated Blackwell Public Schools. On August 17, 1979, he married Terri Jenkins in Blackwell and they continued to live in Blackwell where they raised their three children.
Roger enjoyed his many years in the oilfield, but farming was always his passion. Prior to his passing, he was farming for Gene Whittum.
Though Roger had no avid hobbies, he would say he was “the jack of all trades and the master of none.” His favorite pastime included spending time with family, friends and good music. His smile and love for these things will never be forgotten.
