Harry Towb was married to the actress Diana Hoddinott for 44 years until his death. He died at his home in London from complications due to cancer. As his obituary in The Times said, "Asked, once, why he had become an actor, Harry Towb said it was because he had always wanted to be someone else." His "being fascinated by others... made him one of the finest character actors of his day," The Times continued. Towb, said one critic, "can be relied upon to add distinction to any production"." He is survived by Hoddinott and their children (Emily, Daniel and Joshua) and three granddaughters. Towb was Jewish and in 1983 recorded a documentary, Odd Men In, about Belfast's Jewish community.
