Melvin Dwain Towner

On Saturday, August 29, 2020, Melvin "Dwain" Towner, loving husband and father of two children, passed away at age 94.

Dwain was born on April 4, 1926 near Hooker, OK to Floyd and Thelma Towner.

He served honorably in the US Army during WWII in the Philippines and returned to pursue an engineering degree at the University of Colorado, ultimately growing a successful family farm operation. After retirement, he was dedicated to the community as a volunteer for Hospice and was instrumental in organizing Project Hope.

On June 13, 1957, he married Adena Kostreva. They raised one daughter, Dena, and one son, Melvin (Mel).

Aside from his continued love and devotion to his family, Dwain had a passion and talent for working on all things mechanical and restored multiple automobiles and tractors. He projected kindness and generosity throughout his life.

He is survived by his wife, children, brothers Roy and Gary, and sister Eileen Keyser. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother Don.

Visitation will be held Tuesday, September 1, 2020, 2 P.M. to 8 P.M. at Robson Funeral Home, Hugoton.

A private burial will be held at Hooker Cemetery, Hooker, OK at a later date.

In lieu of flowers a memorial has been established for Pheasant Heaven Charities or Project Hope. Memorials may be mailed to Robson Funeral Home, P.O. Box 236, Hugoton, KS 67951.
