David A. Towers, passed away peacefully, with his loving family by his side at his home on Friday September 7, 2018 in Garden City, SC. He was born in Hartford, CT on November 8, 1956 to the late Donald & June Nordell Towers.
Along with his parents, Dave is preceded in passing by his father in-law, Henry Chartier as well as many special friends over the years.
An outdoorsman at heart, Dave enjoyed golf, fishing and playing softball in his younger years. His love for softball led to meeting the love of his life, Diane and 30 years of marriage. In 1998, Dave and his family relocated to Myrtle Beach, SC from Connecticut. His favorite hobbies included listening to classic rock music (Jethro Tull); searching for shark teeth with his beloved daughter, Amanda; relaxing on beach with friends; and was an avid dart player and Green Bay Packer fan. He also loved playing pool and vacations in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Left to cherish Dave’s memory are his wife, Diane Chartier Towers of Garden City, SC; their daughter, Amanda Olds and her husband, Logan of Los Angeles, CA; his adoring granddaughter, Scarlett Olds; his brothers, Bill Towers, and his wife, Robin of Broad Brook, CT & Donald Towers of Reno, NV; his sister, Joyce Boucher and her husband, Rick of Enfield, CT; his loving mother-in law Joan Chartier; his k-9 buddy Gizmo and his best friends, Gordon, Mel and Steve as well as a large, loving extended family and many supportive friends and neighbors.

I was saddened to read of the loss of your loved one.
When we lose our loved one in death it is the most difficult
time in our life. However, there is loving
comfort in Psalms 55:22 “throw your burden on God
and he will sustain you..” Yes, no matter what you are facing
God is there to help you get through it. May you continue to
have the love and support from family and friends. I sincerely
hope that this Bible message brings you
a measure of comfort during this difficult time.
