We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Anderson Funeral Home
Mitchell Rowland, 70, of Liberty, TN died on the morning of June 18th 2021. He was in his home with his wife, two daughters, and son-in-law near.
He was a devout Christian and a long time member of Salem Baptist Church. He grew up farming and later graduated from MTSU. After he married his wife, Debra, he became a mail carrier for the Liberty Post Office and worked there for 38 years. He was often recognized in town by his red truck, which he also delivered the mail in.
He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always ready with a joke. He enjoyed spending time on the family farm with his metal detector and loved sharing pictures he'd captured there with his wildlife camera. He regularly spent time in his shed devoted to his latest woodworking project. In his later years, he often helped his younger siblings in projects such as assisting his brother build a new barn, and he was always ready to offer help to his family whenever they needed it.
His pride and joy were his two daughters and his young granddaughter. He will be long remembered as a loving husband, father, and grandfather.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Debra Rowland; his daughter Mary Montgomery and her husband Tyler of Murfreesboro; his daughter Ashley Rowland of Chattanooga; his granddaughter Emma Rowland of Chattanooga; his brother, Tim Rowland; sisters, Genrose Davis, Terry Bess Malone, and Westa Morrison; and aunt, Mackie Yatooma. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews as well as great-nieces and great-nephews and many cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Mary Tom Rowland.
Visitation will be held at Salem Baptist Church Monday, June 21, 2021 at 1pm, which will immediately be follow by a funeral service at 5pm.
