Obituary

We are saddened to announce the passing of Henry “Grady” Rowell, Jr. of Deland, FL, on Sunday, November 6, 2022, at the age of 85 after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Grady Rowell was born in 1937 in Daytona Beach, FL, and was a lifelong resident of Volusia County.

Grady attended Seabreeze High School, and attended Emory University at Oxford where he was also captain of the Emory baseball team in 1958. His love of baseball did not end there. He was an avid collector of baseball memorabilia, and he also coached the Daytona Beach Babe Ruth League, as well as coached the basketball team at the YMCA, and he coached his daughter’s softball teams. He also announced baseball games at City Island Ballpark.

Grady worked as an accountant and retired from the Florida Power and Light company. He was also an avid collector of historic and early American memorabilia. His love of history led him to be an active participant in American History organizations that performed historic reenactments throughout the Southern states. He was a former commander of the Sons of the American Revolution, also in Deland, FL.

Grady was a lecturer on the carving at Stone Mountain, GA, and lectured on Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. He was also an active member of Daytona Beach’s Masonic Lodge #270. Grady was preceded in death by his father, Henry Rowell, Sr. and his mother, Gladys Rowell. Grady Rowell is survived by his daughter, Terri Rowell of Edgewater, FL, and his son, Robert Rowell and daughter-in-law Mary Rowell of Portland, Oregon, and his beloved dog “Mosby”.

Grady and his family request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his name to Journey’s End, Home for Abused Animals in Deland, FL.
