Obituary for Raymond "Ray" H. Rowles

Raymond “Ray” H. Rowles, 83, of Sevierville, passed away on Friday, February 23, 2018. He was born on July 3, 1934 in Providence, Rhode Island. Ray was an exuberant soul with a boisterous personality. He had an infectious laugh and constantly kept those around him smiling with his clever wit. Ray had a tactful mind that processed information quickly and he was always ready to give a much needed answer to any given question. He was a genuine man and made a lasting impression on all those he met. Ray loved his family and he will be missed immeasurably.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Dorothy Rowles; and his brother, Paul Rowles.

Ray is survived by his wife, Scherri Rowles; children, RaeAnn Sullivan and husband, Tim, Steven Rowles, Diane Rowles, Deborah McGrath, Deidre Pesola, all of Rhode Island, Ashley Collier and husband, Brent, and Courtney Rowles, of Sevierville; many grandchildren; sister, Gale Rowles; several nieces and nephews.
