Rowlett Jr., William Caswell "Bill"
On November 28, 2008, WILLIAM CASWELL (BILL) ROWLETT, JR., age 84,
did go gentle into that good night. He is done with suffering now and
beyond all pain. Born November 14, 1924 to William C. Rowlett, Sr.,
and Myrtle Johnson Rowlett, he was a child of the depression and a
member of the U. S. Army Air Corps in World War II. A graduate of
Milby High School, he attended the University of Houston for 3 years
after the war. He worked most of his life for Main Glass and
Binswanger Glass in Houston. That rare individual, a native
Houstonian, he was a dynamic member of numerous civic organizations,
and he devoted countless hours to Scouting and community development
efforts. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Dolores Marie
Rowlett, son William Douglas Rowlett, daughter-in-law Linda Lussier
Rowlett, grandson Ellis Robinson Giles and his wife Mary Helen Giles,
grandson William Caswell Rowlett III, grandson Evan William Rowlett,
and great-grandson Alden Samuel Giles. All who met him liked him. All
who came to know him came to love him. A caring, gentle, honorable
man, his spirit, advice, humor, and kindness will be sorely missed.
Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Wednesday, December 3, in Brenham
Memorial Chapel. Interment will be Thursday at Forest Park Cemetery,
Lawndale, in Houston. Services are in the care of: BRENHAM MEMORIAL
