Eugene N. “Nick” Tower, age 87

Eugene N. “Nick” Tower, age 87, of Weymouth, formerly of Pembroke and Scituate, died peacefully, Wednesday, May 25, 2022 in the comfort of his home, surrounded by his loving family.

Eugene was born in Cohasset, to the late Sargent F. and Helen (Gould) Tower. Raised and educated there, he was a graduate of Cohasset High School, Class of 1952, and earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Brown University in 1956.

He lived in Weymouth for twelve years, previously in Pembroke for four years, and earlier in Scituate for over forty-five years.

Nick was proud to have served in the United States Army as a Sergeant during the late 1950s.

He was employed as a project manager in the information technology industry and had worked with the Honeywell company in Billerica for many years.

Nick is best described as a “renaissance man” with many interests, including art, painting, nature and bird-watching, stamp and coin collecting. He enjoyed military history, war-gaming, and was well-known for keeping detailed journals throughout his life.

Most of all, Nick was devoted to his family and especially to his cherished grandchildren, supporting all their many activities and accomplishments.

Beloved husband of the late Katherine G. (Chase) Tower.

Devoted father of Craig S. Tower and his wife Lisa of Halifax, and Neal L. Tower of Scituate.

Loving grandfather of Devin and Jessica.

Nick was the last of eight siblings and is survived by many nieces and nephews.

Cherished longtime companion of Katherine M. (Pagliaro) Gent of Weymouth; her daughter, Karen Campanale and her husband Michael, and their children, Francesca and Gianna, all of Braintree.

At the request of the family, a celebration of Eugene’s life will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Nick’s memory may made to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, 1001 Connecticut Avenue NW, Suite 840, Washington, DC 20036.

  • Rest In Peace Mr Towers. For a few years
    You guys were my surrogate family. Countless nights I’d ride my bike over to play every sort of fantasy and war games with your sons and others. You were always kind to me and welcoming. And forgiving when Craig and I may have pushed the boundaries. I’ll never forget how enthralled I was with the war gaming table you had in that basement on Langdon lane. All those thousands of figures, painted by your hand with historical accuracy. So creative and disciplined at the same time. You passed that on to your boys, and your boys to me.
    Craig I’m so glad your story took such a positive turn so many years ago. You’re a good man by all counts and we’re a great friend for many years. Priceless memories. Matt he memories of your dad be happy and fill your heart. Very best to you and all the Towers folks today and always.
