Ardell Gene Rowland, age 91, of Grand Haven passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, November 5, 2020. He was born January 14, 1929 in Dawson, Minnesota to Merle and Maggie (Wilroth) Rowland. He was the third of fourteen children.
Ardell (Al) proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He was a life member of the VFW. He was also a member of the American Legion - Ludington and Grand Haven posts, the Eagles and the Amvets.
Al worked as a Machinist at Gardner Denver for over thirty years and was a member of the IAM. He enjoyed woodworking, farming, raising calves and pigmy goats, and planting a large garden every spring. In addition, he enjoyed hunting, traveling, boating and wintering in Zephyrhills, Florida for many years. He also loved listening to country music. But what was most important to him was spending time with his family. Al will be remembered and dearly missed by children: Pam (Ed) Tysman, Kevin (Brenda) Rowland, Shelly Scripps, and Kraig Rowland along with grandchildren: Kevin (Amy) Rowland, Chris (Denise) Rowland, Brandon Land, Lauren (Luke) Novak, Amy Romanelli (fiancé Cody Vanderslute) and Ryan Kline, great-grandchildren AunaLeiha and Anya Land, Mila and Elsie Novak, Ava Romanelli, and Greyson and Myles Rowland.
