Terry Joe Townson

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.

Terry opened the doors of his home to a stranger and made me feel more welcome then some of my own family. He always had a kind word And a great sense of humor. His love for Karen and Debbie was was visible from the get go, and of course anyone that loved his dogs as much as he did had to be a great guy! Lots of fond memories of time well spent. Prayers for the family, that find peace in a life well lived.
