Bobby retired from the Georgia Department of Corrections after helping to protect the citizens of the State for many years. In his free time, he loved slipping off to Hilton Head to spend time at the beach or grilling in the backyard. Whenever fall came, you know he would be found cheering on his favorite team, the Georgia Bulldogs! Bobby loved people and people loved him.

He is a member of the Reidsville Baptist Church and is preceded in death by his father, Joe Rowland.
He is survived by his children, Kristofer (Gregory) King of Woodstock, Kaydee (Parker) Lamb of Statesboro and Jakob Rowland of Reidsville; mother, Mrs Susie Rowland of Reidsville; sister, Donna Rowland of Pennsylvania and a nephew, Eric Gilder of Pennsylvania.
