Harry A. Tow, PE, AICP - A Visalia Legend
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we share the peaceful passing of QK co-founder Harry Tow. He was 94 years old.
Harry was born in Iowa and studied engineering at USC. He moved to Visalia, California in the 1950s to raise his family in a small town. He was the City of Visalia city manager for a little more than a decade. He then founded Quad Consulting in 1972. Throughout his 48 years at Quad, Quad Knopf, and now QK, he shared his insight and wisdom with those of us who had the privilege to work with him.
Harry was an incredible mentor, friend, and positive influence, and was devoted to service of his community through his consulting work, literally for as long as possible. We will miss him very much and cherish the time that we worked alongside him.
Thank you, Harry. For everything.
