Paul Donald Townsend

Services for Mr. Paul Donald Townsend of Wesson are 4:00 pm Sunday, July 9, 2017 at Mt Zion Baptist Church with burial at the church cemetery.

Visitation is from 2:00 until time of service on Sunday at the church.

Paul Donald Townsend, 84, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, July 6, 2017. He was born on March 22, 1933,

to Lewis Brown Townsend and Essie O’Bannon Townsend.

Paul graduated from Lena High School and immediately joined the Navy in 1952 during the Korean War. He later started his own company,

Townsend & Wallace Heating and Air, in 1978 in Crystal Springs. He was an active member of First Baptist Church in Crystal Springs

until he and his wife, Myrna, moved to Wesson in 2013 where he joined Mt. Zion Baptist Church.  He and Myrna enjoyed traveling,

going to Buckhorn Hunting Club, to NASCAR races, Navy reunions, and grandchildren's ball games.  

Preceding him in death were his parents; 4 brothers, Tom Townsend, Ed Townsend, Lewis Townsend, James Townsend;

5 sisters, Virginia Messer, Eugenia Windham, Myra Jean Scott, Josephine Townsend, Helen Jane Ware.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 59+ years, Myrna K. Townsend; sons, Don Townsend and wife Liz, David Townsend and wife Kim;

daughter, Susan T. Easterling and husband Irving; brother, Wayne Townsend and wife Donia. He is also survived by

7 grandchildren, Shane Easterling, Seth Easterling, Summer Burns, Sara Allen, Emily Townsend, Jordan Townsend, Dallas Townsend;

6 great grandchildren, Riley and Casen Easterling, Sawyer and Shawn Easterling, Braxton Lane Townsend and Aubrey Kate Allen.

Paul was also survived by many friends, including high school friends, Navy buddies, Queen's Lane neighbors, deer camp friends, church friends,

as well as others he met along the way.  He was a big talker and never forgot a story or a joke, sometimes telling them over and over to their dismay.

He never met a stranger and if he did, you can bet he knew some of their "people".

Memorials can be made to Mt. Zion Baptist Church Building Fund or Alzheimer’s Foundation.

    Susan, Don, and David, my heart is breaking for each of you and your families at this sad time. Your Dad was such a special man and meant so much to Bailey and me for the last 59+ years. I just talked with him last week and we talking about meeting again in Crystal Springs for lunch as soon as he got past this last injury to his arm. I have too many memories of him to try and reminisce about him at this time, but I will truly miss him and his wonderful sense of humor. As you know, Bailey & I and your Mom & Dad go back to the late 1950's when your Mom and I shared an apartment and your Dad and Bailey lived at the same boarding house. In fact, it was your Dad who introduced me to Bailey. Please know that I am praying for each of you and, of course, I pray for your Mom each day and will continue to do so. I love all of you.
