Obituaries are so much more than a public notice that a friend or loved one has passed away.

Randy Rowe

12/5/1957 - 2/18/2018

PEORIA – Randy Lee Rowe, 60, of Peoria, passed away at 1:35 a.m. Sunday, February 18, 2018 at his home.

He was born December 5, 1957 in Paris, IL to James and Ruth (Krueger) Rowe. He is preceded in death by his parents.

Surviving are two brothers, Don (Jane) Rowe of Kansas, IL and Gary Rowe of Belleville, IL; four nieces and a nephew, Tamara Rowe of Kansas, IL, Tim (Joanne) Rowe and their daughter Gabriella of Ridgefield, CT; Shelley Rowe of Belleville, IL; Tiffany (Matt) Ehlers and their four children, Jackson, Katey, Lainey, and Maria of Kansas, IL; and Jody (Chris) Cordie and their son Easton of Belleville, IL.    

Randy farmed with his family in the Kansas and Oakland area until 1985.  He then became a state manager for DTN.  He later managed cellular stores for Verizon and ATT in the Champaign and Peoria areas.  He loved charting farm markets and anything new with computer technology.

His immediate and extended family were very important to him.  He always had a smile that would light up a room and always loved a good joke.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Cremation has been accorded by Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory in Pekin. A private graveside service will be held at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be given to the charity of the donor’s choice.
