Obituary - John Rowan


Rowan, John, 60, long time resident of St. James. Son of Jeannette and Francis; Father to Deirdre, Conor, Hannah, and Zachary; Grandfather to Liam, Daniel, Brendan, Quinn, and Baby Leo; Youngest brother to Susan, Peter, Steven, and Ellen; Partner and “House Husband” to Cathy, was dearly beloved.  A reverent man, John made sure to get outside every night before bedtime to thank the universe for its  blessings. With an innate generosity of spirit, John gave to all around him. He had a unique ability to make others feel at ease, even strangers he passed on the street. He was a good listener, and could be counted on to give a sincere hug, coupled with a hearty laugh. On the dance floor, he played a mean air guitar. John was a humble, quiet, gentleman who knew how to have fun, and left a large wake. It’s an understatement to say that he was loved, and will be missed. Visitation was held at St. James Funeral Home, 829 Middle Country Rd., on May 25, 2019 from 2-4 and 6-8 PM. A Reflective Prayer Service was held 7 PM at the Funeral Home. Mr. Rowan’s funeral arrangements were professionally supervised while the Rowan Family was lovingly cared for during their bereavement by The Maher Family & Staff of the St. James Funeral Home.
