    Don Rowe was my teacher at Shivers and later remained a great friend. I would often grab a conversation with him at the local Chinese restaurant, Jin Jin. He was always kind, respectful and had a joke to tell me! We’d laugh and then carry on with our day. He will be missed.

      Coach Don Rowe taught me History at Shivers Junior High School. I will never forget him. He would always tease me when I would meet up with in different places.
      Gone, but not Forgotten!

    I’ve never met a more kind hearted person. He use to tease me all the time about being in the witness protection program due to me changing my hair all the time. He always smiled when picking up Tyler. He will truly be missed. Praying for strength and comfort.
