Robert Lee Towns, whom family and friends fondly called him “Pete,” was born in Macon County, Georgia on June 12, 1954 to Henrietta Davis Towns and Robert Towns. He was educated in the Macon County public school system.
He worked many years for the Cagle Bonding Co. as a landscaper and was thought highly of by the owner and employees.
Pete loved to read, write poetry, cook, and dance. In addition, he loved to have fun and knew how to make other people laugh. He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them.

Five sisters who preceded him in death: Eva Nell Walker, Betty Little, Nettie Mae Mathis, Mary Towns, and Katie Towns; four brothers who preceded him in death: Edie Towns, Bobby Towns, Edward Towns, and Robert Towns Jr.
