Clinton Corners - David Edward Towle, 58, of Clinton Corners, NY, beloved husband for 17 years of Patricia Garthwaite Towle, passed away on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, surrounded by his family at New York Presbyterian Hospital in NY, NY. Born in Houston, TX on January 21, 1961, son of the late Lester Stanley Towle, Jr. and Elizabeth Mary (Bruce) Towle, he was raised in Houston, TX and had lived in Clinton Corners, NY since 2002. After high school, David started his career in construction in the Houston area and later went to work for his brother and sister-in-law. David worked in product sales for Rio Vista Products, an equine and dog shampoo and conditioner company, and he later took over the company and marketed the products at horse shows and trade fairs throughout the country, traveling over 250,000 miles with his dog Kokomo. After marrying Patricia Garthwaite in 2002, he moved to New York and was an active part of managing his wife's equestrian facility, Tatra Farm in Clinton Corners, NY. A surfer since he was a young man in Texas, David loved surfing the waves at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire, and always took a ride up whenever a hurricane was approaching to catch the giant waves. He was a golf fanatic and was often found playing a round with his golfing buddies, whom he loved spending time with. After suffering a heart attack in April of 2012, David approached his rehabilitation like everything else in life, with optimism and excitement.
