Funeral Service for Floyd Rowland, 92, of Roland, Oklahoma will be at 9:30 AM on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at Agent Mallory Martin Chapel in Muldrow, Oklahoma. Burial will follow at U.S. National Cemetery in Fort Smith, Arkansas under the direction of Agent Mallory Martin Funeral Service, Inc.

He was born on December 23, 1927 in Moffett, Oklahoma to Mable Morton Rowland and Jess Monroe Rowland and passed away on June 12, 2020 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. He was married to Peggy (Hays) Rowland on September 3, 1954 in Scott, Oklahoma. He worked in shipping at Riverside Furniture, he attended First Assembly of God Church in Van Buren, Arkansas and was an United States Army Veteran. Floyd loved going on road trips with his family. He always invented games for them to play that were so much fun they never asked…”Are we there yet?” His love of playing the guitar led him to a little country church where he found Jesus as his personal Savior. Floyd played several instruments including the mandolin, banjo and harmonica and he would play for anyone who would listen or play with him. He also spend a lot of time in his woodworking shop making beautiful wooden gifts for his family and friends. Floyd was a Cherokee Nation citizen and admired Native American art and was quite an artist himself of Native American portraits, historical figures and caricatures. Anytime you told him a funny story, he could draw you a picture of it. Floyd will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
