John Rowe Obituary

John David (JD) Rowe, 74, passed away on May 23, 2023. He was born in Drury, MO, on June 21, 1948, to Leonard Rowe and Freda (Hix) Rowe. JD was the owner and operator of American Tree Service for many years. He was a jack of all trades, who enjoyed remodeling his house and woodworking. He also liked to garden, barbeque, and play cards and pool. JD would do anything for anyone. Above all else, he loved his family.
