Seabrook, NH — Gerald G. Rowe, 80, of Seabrook, died on Saturday, February 8, 2014, at Oceanside Skilled Nursing Center in Hampton.
He was born in Newburyport, Mass., on April 16, 1933, and was a son of the late Charles and Frances (Fowler) Rowe.
Mr. Rowe was raised in Newburyport. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, and proudly served his country during the Korean War. After the service, he and his wife of over 54 years, Helen (Frost) Rowe, settled in Seabrook to raise their family.
Gerald was a self-employed fisherman for many years, worked construction for a time, and most recently, worked as a driver for the Yankee Cooperative at Seabrook Beach. He loved fishing, especially with his family, and had owned many boats over the years. Above all else, Gerald was a family man whose life revolved around his wife and children. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
In addition to his wife, Helen, of Seabrook, he is survived by his sons, Clifford of Worcester, Mass., and Donald and his wife, Anna, of Gambrills, Md.; his daughter, Darlene Gonzalez of Sanford, Maine; his sisters, Virginia Young and her husband, Roy, of Hampton, and Alicia Rowe of Irvington, Ala.; his five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
Gerald was predeceased by his sons, Jerry M. Rowe and Kevin C. Rowe; and his brother, Charles Rowe.
There are not enough words to express our appreciation to the Oceanside Nursing Home, especially the Francoeur Unit. The family is deeply grateful for the love and care they have provided our family over the years.
