Mr. Towler served his country with honor in the United States Army Air Corp during World War II. Glenn D. was a wonderful provider for his family, working with the Operators Engineers Local 520. He could look at any small engine or lawnmower and know instinctively how to repair it. Glenn was taught at a young age how to hunt and trap and it was a skill he continued on into adulthood, sharing this knowledge with his family. Glenn will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
