Terry Joe Townson
November 17, 1946 ~ August 01, 2020
Terry Joe Townson, age 73, passed away suddenly Saturday, August 1, 2020, at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center after a courageous battle with heart disease. Terry is survived by his loving wife, Karen Townson, of 15 years; his son Terry Bryan Townson of Bradenton; two grandchildren Taylor and Dylan; his brother William Ray Townson of Citrus Springs; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; grandparents; and sister Mary Lou Townson. Terry was born on November 17th, 1946 in Cullman, Alabama to TJ and Mildred (Maddux) Townson. He was the youngest of three siblings. Terry graduated from McArthur High School of Hollywood, Florida in 1964. Terry dedicated most of his life’s work to General Caulking & Coatings (GCC). He joined GCC in 1966 and worked vigorously to become one of GCC’s principal owners. Terry cherished his wife Karen and his sister-in-law Dewey. They were the present-day Three’s Company! Until recently, there wasn’t a day you wouldn’t see them enjoying themselves with friends at local restaurants or driving their golf cart throughout the streets of Singer Island. Terry was an avid boater and adored fishing. He loved his Salt Life and always set sail towards Margaritaville. He loved to sing to his favorite songs and dance as best as he knew how. He was good humored and full of life, kind hearted and generous. He constantly surrounded himself with friends and family because without them, he didn’t see any other purpose in life. You will be greatly missed Terry! No funeral services will be held at this time due to the current pandemic. A Celebration of Life may be scheduled in the future. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to www.stjude.org or to your favorite charity, in his honor.
