RAYMOND — William (Bill) Towle died at home of esophageal cancer on Friday, June 23, at age 80.

He was born in Richmond but grew up attending Auburn schools, graduating from Edward Little High School in 1955. He received a four-year scholarship to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), graduating in 1963 with three degrees in aeronautical engineering.

Family was always very important. After Faith, his wife, Bill’s two sons were his best friends. Losing his younger son, Steve, at age 36, in a skiing accident was extremely painful.

Bill was predeceased by his parents, William and Hazel Towle of Auburn.

Survivors include brother, Michael of Auburn; sister, Kathleen and husband, Edward Cormier of Minot; and son, Andrew and family of Connecticut.
