Reverend Harold Rowledge, Pastor, husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa and friend; April 30, 1939 – February 24, 2012.
Harold had a message in over 50 years of ministry in British Columbia, “God Loves You” and “God through His love will give you strength for anything.” He shared this message in the north, east,west and south of B.C. in his loving and peaceful way.
He has predeceased his loving wife Tina of 51 years, daughters Connie (Steve) Dunton, Margie (Don) Street, Cyndee (Rod) Fair; grand kids Kathy, Shawna (Jon), Mike, Nathan (Jen), Matt (Dee), Jon, Tricia, Kim, Corinna; three and a half great-grand kids; sister Elaine (Bill) Gibson and her children and families.
Harold was born in Stettler, Alberta and grew up in Powell River where he was called to the ministry, a calling that stayed with him all his life. When diagnosed with incurable cancer, Harold’s attitude demonstrated the peace he had in knowing that a loving God is in charge. He walked this journey arm in arm with his Savior and Lord.
For all of those who helped, the caring doctors, nursing staff and friends, we thank you for making Harold and the whole family so comfortable. You all have such a wonderful gift and you gave it freely to all of us. We are going to miss Harold terribly, but we know he is eternally at home in Heaven and his pain is gone.
Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 1:30p.m. at Nanaimo Evangelistic Tabernacle 1300 Princess Royal Avenue.
