Obituary of Earl H. Townsend

Earl H Townsend, born September 07, 1938, in Denver, Colorado to Emery and Phoebe Townsend. He was pre-deceased by his parents, brothers William (Bud), Emery Jr., Robert, and his sisters Bernice and Marylee.

Beloved husband of Marion for 65 years. Loving father of Lori, Tammie, Earline, Robert, Earl and Mark. Grandfather of Angela, Rob, James, Jon, Heather, Mike, Anna, Tessa, Holly, Teagan, Tobias, Tyler, Karissa, Justin, Nicole, Madi, Nick and Caitlyn. He also had great grandchildren and great great grandchildren that were all the apples of his eye.

Earl loved hunting deer with his brothers and spent much of his life fishing with his children. He was a true fan of the Denver Broncos. He loved telling stories of the old days and even though we heard them many times we loved hearing him tell them.

Earl worked most of his career driving Semi Trucks for asphalt paving companies, he loved the trucks, the bigger the better. He also hauled a lot of the steel up to the iconic Sculptured House that was in a Woody Allen Movie “Sleeper”.

He enjoyed spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren and he loved his home state of Colorado. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and will remain in our hearts forever.

We will be gathering next spring for a celebration of his life with family and friends.
