History: David William Rowley

A TRIBUTE TO A LOVING HUSBAND AND FATHER!!

When one has the opportunity to prepare a history such as this one for publication it becomes their privilege to include things that should be said but perhaps have not been. At this time, representing David William Rowley’s children and wife, I would like to add this tribute to him.

President N. Eldon Tanner has said, “I can think of nothing sweeter in all the world than a home where the father is holding and magnifying his priesthood and doing his duty, living the teachings of the gospel, realizing that his greatest responsibility is in his family…” Daddy, we your children pay tribute to you because we feel that we have grown up in a home where the father did live the teachings of the gospel and he taught them to his children. I remember many specific times when we were taught lessons in honesty, integrity, and truthfulness by your example.

From your sweet wife, Estella…”I was told by the spirit that you are a Christ-like man. I think you are almost the most perfect man I have ever known next to Jesus Christ, I love you more than anybody on earth.”

From Bishop Keith Johnson, of Mountain Home…”Brother Dave Rowley is the perfect example of what a true Latter-Day Saints should be.”

From Bishop Joseph Cutler, Bountiful…”Brother Rowley, you remind me of Mormon and his son Moroni in the Book of Mormon. You have the faith of Mormon and the integrity and tenacity of Moroni.”

From ALL of your children…

Children do not realize
How deep a father’s love, how wise —
They do not fully understand
The strength that’s in his guiding hand.
And yet he’s always held above
The childhood things that children love.
And as they grow the long years through,
That love for him keeps growing, too…
Until they learn the full extent
Of what a father’s love has meant,
The worries he’s concealed within,
How really wonderful he’s been
And, now, here’s to one beyond compare,
The Dearest Father anywhere!

-The End-

ESTELLA – She has been my comfort, counselor and confidante. As she always says – she had worked at trying to build up my ego. We all need to have a sense of our own worth or we can’t be happy. She likes to sing too. She used to sing solos at church and school. She doesn’t have a big voice but I like to sit beside her and listen as she sings the songs of praise to the Lord. She does appreciate me as her Priesthood head and honors and supports me in my church callings. Estella, you have been a lot of inspiration to me in many ways. Your love and faith in me means so much and your desire to help promote the work of the Lord. I know that I am not so much for words to express my love and gratitude for the many ways you help me. I am thankful that the Lord was mindful of us and sent you to me. I love you very much and will forever.

History: David William Rowley

TO ALL MY CHILDREN – The raising of you children was a wonderful experience from babies to growing up and having families of your own. It had been an experience I will always remember with love in my heart. I know we had our privations and hard times, especially during the depression, but hard times are good for us. It makes us think and work harder and appreciate what we have more. It is hard for me not to be able to furnish my family with everything they needed, but you all survived.
