James Towe is remembered as a joking father and good friend who reportedly served in the Army’s 101st Airborne Division.
Towe’s son, James Towe told Cudahy his dad was a comedian who playfully cracked jokes.
"I'm trying to hold my own, I'll catch myself grieving [...] trying to keep myself composed to figure everything out," Towe said.
Towe said he and his brother are the last remaining family members living in the area.
“We’re going to try and talk to the VA [...] I guess he didn’t have any insurance policy so it’s going to be rough trying to come up with the funeral costs,” Towe said.
