Obituary of Robert Allen "Froggie" Rowe

It is with shattered hearts that we announce the passing of Robert Allen Rowe “Froggie” at the Welland Hospital on June 22, 2021 at the age of 75. Devoted soulmate of Wilma McLellan. Loving father of Ronnie, Junior (Billie), and Crystal (Rick). Robert will be missed by his grandchildren; Tysen, Merissa, Dylan, Hailey and Camden. He also leaves behind his brothers Nick (Monique), Tommy (the late Louise) and his sisters; Maggie (the late Billy), Roxanne (Ivan), Donna, Cindy (John) and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Thomas and Margaret and his brother Danny.

Those who knew Froggie knew how much he loved to play Euchre and Cribbage and was very competitive in the leagues he used to play in. You would often find him sitting back, relaxing, and cheering on his favorite sport teams; Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays with a cold “OV” in hand. Froggie was a truck driver for many years until retiring at the job he loved the most at Bell Marine.
In accordance with Robert’s final wishes, cremation has taken place. The family has entrusted his arrangements with Essentials Cremation and Burial Service Inc. 221 Division Street, Welland. As an expression of sympathy, flowers for the family can be delivered to 221 Division Street, Welland and memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society at
