Victor Michael Rowlands, 68, of South Pittsburg, Tennessee, died Monday, November 20, 2017. 

The son of the late Richard Rowlands and Georgina Sissy Swallow, he was a native of Wales, United Kingdom. He was a loyal employee of Bridgestone/Firestone in Morrison, Tn. and was the owner of AV Aerial Services. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers and one sister. 

He is remembered by his step-daughter Brianna as a great and loving father, a kind man with a big heart that smiled and waved to everyone he passed. Words cannot describe the joy he brought. 

His wife cherishes that he was a loving husband that made all of her dreams come true. He was a kind and resourceful man. 

He is survived by his faithful and loving wife, Mrs. Michelle A. Rowlands, of South Pittsburg; step-daughter, Brianna Gregory of South Pittsburg; children, Georgina Rowlands and family, Allison Rowlands and family, Joanne Rowlands-Owen and husband, Trevor, Terry Rowlands and fiancé, Christine Andrews, and their children, Amelia, Logan, Cai and Sienna, Samantha Rowlands and her fiancé, Marc, and their children, Levi, Crystal, Charley, and Demi-Lei; and his dear and faithful friends, Gordon Roberts, Carl Roberts, and all of his team members and the Bridgestone/Firestone family.  Special gratitude goes to the Mormon Temple, especially, Michael Sealy and George Miller, for their support to him in his faith. 

In accordance with his wishes, Victor was cremated and there will be no services. 

The family requests that memorial donations be made to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 2700 Main Street, Kimball, Tennessee 37347.
