It is with great sadness that we are writing to you to announce the passing of our beloved partner and dear friend Jim Towns. He was an amazing husband and father, a good man, and an excellent advisor with our firm. The Towns family has been a part of the Sound family for 15 years, starting with Jim’s wife Sharon who retired from her role as a partner in 2014 and then Jim’s role as an advisor starting in 2007. We will certainly miss our friend.

Jim battled cancer for the last two years and recently died due to complications from this fight. It was his wish to not announce his cancer to anyone because he fully intended to beat it. He also fully intended to serve our clients and Sound with the continued excellence we had all learned to expect.

He was an important part of developing the Sound team and our way of serving over the last decade. It would take an entire book to list all of the areas where he shaped our work for you and his contributions will be missed as Jim has gone to be with our Lord.

If you wish to express your condolences to Sharon and the Towns family, please feel free to mail those notes of encouragement here to the office and we will make sure they receive them. Your prayers for the family are greatly appreciated.

Sincerely and with gratitude,

Your Sound Team
