Atlanta, Ga. Nov. 28, 1922 – Nov. 24, 2022

After such a long time with him, it seems greedy to ask for more time, but Daddy definitely left us wanting more. We’ll love him forever. His 100th birthday party on Nov. 28 was also his memorial service.

H.N. Towry, Jr., age 99.99, died Nov. 24, 2022, in Atlanta, Ga., where he spent the last years of his life. For 70 years, he shared that life with his wife, Johnia Inez Cherry Towry, who predeceased him. He was the last of nine siblings.

H.N. was born Nov. 28, 1922 in Tahlequah, Okla., and it was there that he joined the US Army Air Corp right after Pearl Harbor. He served in the Pacific theater. Soon after returning from the war, he moved his young family to Louisiana, where they remained for the next 50 years.

He was a much loved professor in the Business School at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, retiring in 1980. He was also a very active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Natchitoches. He loved camping, tennis, and dessert! After retirement, he and Inez enjoyed traveling in Europe.

He was a gentle, loving father. He leaves behind a family that will always miss him and always be grateful to have shared his life. His family includes his daughters, Sharon Chastain and husband Jim, Linda Towry, Carolyn Mayeaux and husband Jerry, Debra Towry and husband Antonio Carletti, Kristy Towry and husband Cameron Lee, and Tracy Wachholz and husband Kurt; seven grandchildren (two deceased); and many, many, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
