November 5, 1951 — May 12, 2024


      Clifford "Buz" Lloyd Towe Jr was born on November 5, 1951, in Fort Benning, Georgia, and passed away on May 12, 2024, at the age of 72 in Plainville, Georgia. He was a kind, generous, funny and loving man.

   He is survived by his beloved wife, Lillian, his children Sean, Janice, and Ian, his grandchildren Kirsten, Karly, Savannah, Katrina, Austin, Tyler, his sister Marsha Ragsdale, and his nephews David and Daniel. Buz was preceded in death by his mother Ann Towe and father Clifford Towe Sr.
