Conrad "Connie" Dale Rowe died peacefully on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at the age of 84.
Connie was born in Minot, ND on May 11, 1934 to the late Harold and Mary Ellen (Ringey) Rowe and grew up in Stanley, ND. On August 17, 1953, Connie married Johanna "Dodie" Rose Kinn. Their marriage was blessed with four children.
His career as a mechanical engineer and executive brought him around the world, including living in Maryland, Ireland and Minnesota. After retiring, Connie and Dodie spent winters in Mesa, AZ where they had many special friends.
Connie loved his family and enjoyed tinkering (he could fix anything), pool, karaoke, traveling, dancing, and ice cream (anything sweet, really). Most of all, he loved helping others as he was a kind and gentle man. His warm smile and crazy sense of humor will be missed by all who were blessed to know and love him.
He is survived by his children, Bill (Kris), Scott (Kathy), Vonnie (Charlie) Schell and Jeff; a dozen amazing grandchildren; seven precious great-grandchildren; sisters, Ardis Afseth and Debbie (Mike) Harvey; in-laws, Greg Simonson, Carol Rowe and Bernie Brown; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Connie was preceded in death by his loving wife, Dodie; and siblings Bob, Betty and JoAnn.
