David Leon Towe, 73, passed away on Sunday, January 15, 2023. Born in Rome, Georiga, David was the son of the late Leon and Sarah Towe.

David was a strong and patient man who loved his family and friends. For decades, he spent time hiking, camping, and training for triathlons and runs. Quiet and focused, he loved riding, running, and swimming.

He spent decades working at Galey & Lord until the Shannon location closure in 2003. Afterwards, he and his wife started their own business, Tri-man’s World. There were many highs and lows over the years. Yet, David stoically and quietly persevered.

In addition to his parents, David is also preceded in death by his sister, Lynda Williams. He is survived by his wife, Angela Towe, chosen brother Jerry (Kim) Ross, daughter Ashley (Brian) Clowdis, son Jeremy (Ashley) Slayton, niece Kim Hall, great-nephew Zach Hall, grandchildren Maggie Clowdis, Chase Clowdis, Andrew Slayton, Olivia Grace Slayton, and Emerson Clowdis, and several nieces and nephews.

While David will be missed, it is comforting to know that he is no longer suffering and in the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ.

Rather than flowers, as per Mr. Towe’s passion, he would like any donation to go to Appalachian Trail Conservancy at appalachiantrail.org.
