Oscar Gerald Rowland "That's a wrap" Oscar Gerald Rowland was reunited with his beloved wife, Beverly, on Oct. 20, 2010. He passed away due to injuries sustained from a fall the previous day. He was born March 27, 1926 to Oscar Joseph and Texanna Smith Rowland in Salt Lake City, Utah where he resided throughout his youth. He worked in the family grocery store on Seventh East with his younger brother, Glenn, until he graduated from high school. Immediately after graduation he entered military service at the age of 18. Several months later in the winter of 1944, he found himself in Ardennes, Belgium, fighting the Battle of the Bulge with General Patton's Third Army. Soon after he returned from the war he served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the South Africa Mission. Following his mission he married Beverly Booth, July 21, 1949. Oscar owned and operated LaGalerie Gifts and the Red Apple Restaurant for many years. His proudest professional accomplishments were as an actor on stage, screen and television. People would often come up to Oscar in public and say, "Don't I know you?" Some of his favorite movie roles were the grandfather in "Easter Dream" and as a leper in "The Testament". Above all else, Oscar was most proud of his family. He loved his wife, his children and all of his posterity dearly. He often expressed this love while sharing his testimony in church and private settings. Oscar's greatest legacy to us is his unshakable faith in our Savior Jesus Christ and his testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Oscar and Beverly are survived by their five children: Rebecca Sue (Pete), G. Kim (Marlene), Reed (Sandra), Robert (Sandy), and Richard (Anita). They are also survived by 15 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 1 p.m. at the Federal Heights LDS Chapel (1300 E. Fairfax Rd., Salt Lake City, Utah). There will be a viewing Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. at Mountain View Memorial Mortuary (3115 E. Bengal Blvd., Cottonwood Heights, Utah 801-943-0831), as well as one hour prior to services on Saturday. Interment at Mountain View Memorial Cemetery.
