He was married to the former Kathleen Conte and is survived by his daughter, Robinmarie Rowen; son, Randall Rowen; daughter-in-law, Cheryl Rowen; two grandchildren, Juli Rowen and Devin Rowen and nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by four siblings, Leo Rowen, Louise Suchecki, Robert Rowen, and Kathleen Mannix.
