Obituary

Bill E. Towers, aged 79, was called home to his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, due to heart failure. He is preceded in death by his parents Dewey and Ida; his siblings Evelyn, Barbara, and Kenneth; his son Todd; and two grandsons, Timothy and Justin.

Bill was born and raised in Belmont, Michigan where he also raised his own family. As a child he enjoyed boy scouts, canoeing, and several outdoor sports. In his early teen years, he worked on his brother’s-in-law potato farm. He had a love for his country and immediately after high school in 1961 he joined the United States Army and served until 1968. On October 12, 1962, he married the love of his life, Norma, and built the house where they raised their four sons. With his family, Bill enjoyed camping, boating, and fishing on Lake Michigan. He spent time building many wood-burning stoves and making furniture for his home. One of his favorite memories was when he taught his mother-in-law how to drive. He loved to help and teach others. Throughout his life, he had many employments, but retired from Brunswick in 2002. During his retirement he enjoyed gardening, summers in his pool with his grandchildren, and many motorcycle trips including Alaska. He loved to cook and wanted to master making bread and would always give it away to others. He was devoted to teaching children about Christ, including Awana, Bible Study Fellowship, and day camp at church, where he also taught grilling and fishing.

Bill is survived by his wife of almost 60 years Norma; his siblings Ina (Betty), Ed, and Terry (Lew) Geissel; his sons Troy (Rebecca), Tim, and Terry (Shana); 14 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren; and many friends.

A celebration of Bill’s life will take place at Maranatha Bible Church and will be announced at a later date.
