Obituary for Thomas Charrington Townsend

Thomas C. Townsend, 82, of Seven Lakes and formerly Brunswick, OH, passed away at the FirstHealth Hospice House on Wednesday, October 2nd.

Thomas was born in Bownemont, WV, near Charleston, on August 6, 1937 to the late Alverine and Adgie Shreve Townsend. A hardworking man and “Jack - of - all - Trades”, he started working at a young age. As a teen he began his lifelong career as a trainman for the railroad. In his spare time he loved woodworking, gardening, and was an avid NASCAR fan. In 1956, Tom married Helen Delores Rust and soon after, the two moved to Cleveland, OH where they started their family. In 1996, the couple retired to North Carolina and became members of the Seven Lakes Baptist Church. Tom always kept busy working with his hands, whether it be making birdhouses, little wooden churches or just working in his yard.

Tom is survived by his wife, Helen Townsend, and three children: Thomas Townsend, Jr. of Medina, OH; Cathleen Townsend of Canaan, OH; and Gregory Townsend, wife Renee and grandson Corbin, of Henderson, NV. He is also survived by a sister, Barbara Summerfield of Ocala, FL, and several nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held on Friday, Oct. 4th from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the Boles Funeral of Seven Lakes, 221 MacDougal Dr. West End, NC.

A Graveside Service will be held at East Lawn Memorial Gardens in Brunswick, OH on Monday.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Seven Lakes Baptist Building Fund, 1015 Seven Lakes Dr. West End, NC 27376.

Services are entrusted to Boles Funeral Home of Seven Lakes.
