I remember "Mr. Tower" always had a friendly smile, a trait that he clearly passed down to his children.
My deepest sympathy to my old friend Joanne and the entire Tower family. May you find comfort in your fond and happy memories.

The first time I met Mr.Tower it was at a family party in Scituate. We were all just talking and he burst out in a song, as the rest of the family joined in. Over the years I learned more Show Tunes, TV theme songs, and Old Songs. He always had a story, smile and a great laugh. I'm sure you all have amazing memories and hopefully these give you some comfort during this difficult time. Mary Lou and The Tower family you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Love David & Berta

God Bless and rest in peace Uncle Joe. You were always so friendly and welcoming. I fondly remember the visits to Upper Saddle River and getting to play the jukebox. And I always enjoyed the summer visits to Scituate. May the Holy Spirit bring comfort to the family.
