Glen D. Rowell

Mr. Glen D. Rowell of Winnfield, Louisiana passed away on September, 3, 2021 at home with his wife and loved ones by their side. Mr. Rowell was born on April 19, 1938 in Winnfield, Louisiana to the union of Theodore and Martha Powell.

He was an avid bass fisherman, duck and whitetail deer hunter in his favorite area, Saline Lake. So much so, he created his own line of fishing lures named Saline Lake Lures. He once asked his mother where he came from and she stated jokingly, when you was a little boy I found you walking down the road with a fishing pole in one hand and a shotgun in the other. He was loved and admired by friends and family for his wonderful experiences and stories of fishing and hunting told around the old hunting camps after an exciting day.
