William Andrew Rawlings of Owings, MD passed away on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at the age of 71. He was born in Upper Marlboro, MD on September 21, 1945, to Lillian "Irene" (Kidwell) and Robert Andrew Rawlings. William grew up on a farm and enjoyed the farm life and taking care of the animals and crops. He held true to the old saying of, "Early to bed and early to rise". As he got older, he went to work with his dad as a painter. Upon his father's passing, he struck out on his own and became a top notch painter. No matter how good he did at painting, in his heart he was always a farmer.
William's idea of relaxing was to sit and smoke a cigar and listen to the old time country music. He was a proud and simple man. He was a friend to all that needed him and deeply devoted to his family. William and Norma Jean are together again relaxing in their rocking chairs on their heavenly porch listening to country music.
He was the beloved husband of the late Norma Jean (Miller) Rawlings, who passed away in 2003. He was the loving father of Richard Gene Miller and William Andrew Miller. He was the devoted grandfather of Mary Grace Miller and a loving brother of Joyce Marie Galgano and her husband Tom, and Diana Brown. He is also survived by numerous other family and friends.
