It is with great sadness that the family of Kenneth Malcom Rowland announces his passing after a brief illness, on Friday July 20, 2018, at the age of 83 years at Northeast Georgia Medical Center, Gainesville, GA.

He was born October 4, 1934 son of W.W. Rowland and Rosa Taylor Rowland of Vidalia, Georgia in Toombs County.  Mr. Rowland graduated in 1952 from Vidalia High School.  He then came to Atlanta to attend Southern Business College. He worked for Colonial Stores’ Home Office in East Point, GA in the accounting department.  He took leave to serve his country in the Marine Corp and after receiving an honorable discharge in 1956 returned back to Colonial Stores and Georgia State College where he majored in Accounting.  While employed with Colonial Stores, Kenneth moved to progressively higher positions within the Accounting Department and after 31 ½ years retired in 1984 as Comptroller of the Southern Division of Colonial Stores.  

Kenneth was a faithful member of Union Point First Baptist Church where he served on the Deacons Board.  He was also a member of Greene County Recreation and was former member of the Lion’s Club.
