June 15, 1950 - September 18, 2019
Funeral Home Hidden Valley Funeral Home of Richmond
Robert C. Rowe, 69, passed away peacefully at his rural Richmond, Missouri home on Wednesday, September 18. Born June 15, 1950 in Omaha, Nebraska to Donald and Louise Rowe, he was a 1968 Ralston High School (NE) grad who later attended at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.
A hard working and big-hearted man, Bob believed that life delights us most when we put fun and hospitality at the center of living.
As owner of Dukes Steakhouse & Sports Bar and numerous residential properties, he built many caring and long term relationships. He found private happiness by quietly reaching out to many in their time of need lifting their spirits and supporting their interests with a kind, warm (and sometimes) mischievous smile. He truly loved the world of hospitality, receiving and treating guests and strangers in friendly and generous ways.
Bob is remembered for his great cooking along with his long term interests: KC Chief football/Royals baseball, traveling, everything Harley, and car restoration.
He is survived by his son, Jeff (Maria) Cross, three grandchildren residing in LaQuinta, California as well as three brothers Alan (Nancy) Rowe of Marion, Iowa, Dennis (Lynn) Rowe Todd (Debbie) Rowe from Omaha, Nebraska, and his canine companion, Chapo.
He cherished his final years reunited with his son, Jeff, sharing and celebrating the sunshine and warmth of fatherhood.
He and his entire family extends deep gratitude to all of his caregivers, especially to Shirkey Hospice staff—Kaylee, Lori, Heather, and Sunshine.
Per Bob’s wishes, his body was cremated. A celebration of life will be held at a future date for family, friends, and acquaintances to reminisce, chat, and fully enjoy one another’s presence related to Bob.
