Obituary for Jack P. Towne

Jack P. Towne, age 84, of Hot Springs Village passed away August 27, 2017. He was born on August 17, 1933 in Phoenix, Arizona.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Flora (Page) Williams. Survivors include his loving wife, of 47 years, Frankie (Mann) Towne of Hot Springs Village, one brother; John M. Towne of New Mexico, brothers-in-law; Eugene Mann (Jan Lea) of Arkansas, and B. J. Mann (Sunny) of Arkansas, numerous nieces, nephews and close friends.

Jack joined the Navy after graduating from Las Cruces Union High School and served two years in Japan, returning home to attend New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM, where he grew up. He had learned to fly as a teenager and when not attending college, he worked in aviation as a crop duster and sometimes instructor pilot as well as flying some charter for the local flying service in Las Cruces and spent a lot of time just hanging out at the airport. He never lost his love for flying. After graduating from college with a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering, he moved to California to work in the steel and chemical industry.

He loved working with his hands and puttering in his workshop or in and around the house on various projects. He was an accomplished woodworker and was considered to be a jack of all trades. Prior to moving to the Village, Jack and Frankie had resided in Ontario, CA. He enjoyed the serenity and security of the Village and had stated that he didn’t think he would want to live any place else.

Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Village Christian Church in Hot Springs Village with Pastor Larry Farthing and Don Henry officiating.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Village Christian Church, 601 Balaeric Rd., Hot Springs Village, AR 71909.
