Norval Neil Towell

Norval Neil Towell, Weiser, Idaho, ended his earthly life and began his eternal life on June 2, 2021 near McKenna, Wash., where he had moved a short four weeks earlier.
 Norval was born Dec. 6, 1936 in Midvale, Idaho to R. Claire and E. Ruth Neill Towell.
 Norval attended school and graduated in 1955 from Midvale High School. Following school he moved to Weiser, Idaho.
 Norval worked for Oregon Portland and Ashgrove Cement West Companies from 1957-1999 at the Lime and Durkee, Ore., plants.
 Norval was a machinist and shop foreman and was well known for being a dedicated and valued worker.
 On Oct. 26, 1958, Norval married Alice Gross.  They spent their entire married life living in the same home on West Galloway St., in Weiser. It was at this home where they raised their three children Tim, Robin and Michele.
 Norval was a hard worker who loved his family, gardening, animals, fishing, camping and being outdoors. It was many times said that every blade of grass in his yard was pointing the same direction and he often had an abundance of home grown fruits and vegetables to share.  
 Norval very much enjoyed tending to his small farm of animals which were both for sustenance and hobby.
 Survivors include his wife Alice, son Tim (Mary) Towell of Sherwood, Ore., daughter Robin Maillet (Guy Ybarra) of McKenna, Wash., several nieces and nephews, one granddaughter, one grandson and four great-grandchildren.
 Norval was preceded in death by his mother and father, sister Velda Towell Fairchild, daughter Michele, son-in-law Louis Maillet, father and mother-in-law Ralph and LeEsta Gross, as well as numerous brother and sisters-in-law and other family members.
 On July 24, 2021 at 11 a.m., services will be held at Riverside Baptist Church, 598 Hwy 95 South, Weiser, Idaho, where Norval was a member. The family welcomes all to attend.  
 A luncheon will be provided by the Church immediately following the service.  
 A Private Family Service will follow the luncheon at Hillcrest Cemetery.
 Our earth has lost a great man but heaven has gained an even greater angel.
