Herbert Rowland

Herbert Allen Rowland, known affectionately as Hoover, passed away peacefully on January 12, 2024, at the age of 95 in Many, Louisiana. Born on October 18, 1928, in Hopewell, Virginia, Hoover was a beloved father, stepfather, grandfather, and a cherished member of his community.

Hoover is survived by his two daughters, Joanne Terry and Nanci McManigal of Quitman, TX, as well as his four stepchildren Diana Cartier of Texas, Ladonna Largo of Colorado, Richard Largo and wife Sandy of North Carolina and Ruth Strohfeldt and husband David of Illinois. He will be deeply missed by his grandchildren: Bruce Roberts, Betsy Smith, Joseph McManigal, Bryan Terry, Tamra Lynch, Erin Barnhart and Cody McManigal .  He has a number of great grandchildren who lovingly knew him as Big Paw Paw. Hoover was preceded in death by his first wife, Jeanne Elizabeth Rowland, his second wife, Marie Rowland, his son, Bruce Rowland, his mother, Frances E. Rowland, his father, George F. Rowland, and his brother, Harold Rowland.

After graduating from Hopewell High School, Hoover embarked on a successful career with Allied Chemical, retiring in 1985. He then relocated to Louisiana's Sportsman's Paradise of Toledo Bend, where he enjoyed the tranquility and natural beauty of the area during his retirement years.

Hoover found solace and fulfillment in his faith and was a member of Aimwell Baptist Church. He found joy in worship and the sense of community it provided.

In his leisure time, Hoover pursued his passions for hunting and fishing, which brought him great pleasure throughout his life. In his later years, he discovered a new hobby of putting together puzzles, a pastime he enjoyed with puzzles gifted by his family and friends.

The compassionate professionals at Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Many, Louisiana, are assisting the family during this difficult time. There will be a visitation Saturday, January 13, 2024, from 12:00-2:00 pm. Funeral service will begin at 2:00 p.m. at Kilpatrick's Rose-Neath Funeral Home Chapel, 9891 Texas Highway, Many, LA.

Hoover will be remembered for his kind heart, strong work ethic, and devotion to his loved ones. He leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories.

He will be laid to rest with his beloved Jeanne in Chester, VA.

May Hoover's soul find eternal rest, and may his memory be a blessing to all who knew him.
