March 1, 1967 - September 29, 2021

CONWAY, NC – Billy Forrest Rowe, age 54, of US Hwy 158, passed away on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at his home.

Forrest was born on March 1, 1967 to Billy Ray Rowe and the late Sonja Darnell Davis Rowe in Ahoskie, NC. He worked as a manager for Severn Peanut Company for more than 30 years. Forrest was an avid outdoorsman enjoying anything from, hunting, to fishing, to riding four-wheelers, to shooting, to anything just to be outside. Forrest cherished his family, especially his nieces and nephews. He enjoyed spending time with them all. Forrest was always an easy going, quiet man that just took in what nature had to offer, known as a “Gentle Giant”. He was loved by his family and friends and will be deeply missed.

Forrest is survived by his father, Billy; two brothers, Darrell Rowe and wife Donna, and Pat Rowe and wife Mary, all of Conway; two nieces, Amanda Ross and husband Wesley of Pendleton, and Kristen Rowe of Conway; three nephews, Matthew Rowe of Greenville, Nathan Rowe, and Ryan Rowe, both of Conway; and great-nephew, Brantley Ross of Pendleton.
