Sept. 15, 1935 — April 7, 2014

Carroll “Mickey” Rowe found his way to heaven on April 7, 2014 after a long illness.

He was born Sept. 15, 1935 in Bainesbridge, Mich., to George and Harriet Rowe. He lived a farmer’s life as his family moved from state to state. At 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Marines and after boot camp, was sent off to the Korean War. After serving with distinction with the Marines, Carroll joined the U.S Air Force. In 1958, he was sent back to South Korea, where he met the love of his life, Yong Ja. He was sent to Vietnam in 1967 and later retired from the Air Force in 1972. Carroll retired again from Travis Air Force Base contracting office with more than 20 years of service. One of Carroll’s biggest passions was volunteering his time with the Fairfield High School Football Boosters.

Carroll leaves behind his wife of 54 years, Yong Ja Rowe; son, Mike Rowe (Ki); daughter, Cathy McBride (Jimmy), five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Services with military honors were held April 11, 2014 at Boles Funeral Home in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
