A truly honest and caring man. I had some of the best, most memorable, and molding conversations on so many different topics with Ed. I always felt like I was being heard and understood. Got some wise and needed advice. I will remember them and him forever.

Growing up at PFBC, Mr Rowland was a mentor and Father-like figure to me. I felt like he understood me or at least pretended to. He was always there with a hug and a smile. Miss Joyce and boys, I’m so sorry for your loss.
