He held several jobs including ones at Walmart, Target, Buffalo Rock, Leroy Hill Coffee and Sara Lee Bread, but his calling was to help people.

Townley, Cecil Allen "Bud" - Crestview  
Cecil Allen "Bud" Townley died peacefully on Monday, June 20, 2016, just a month shy of his 70th birthday. He was born in Jacksonville, Texas, to Cecil W. and Johnnie (Allen) Townley and grew up in Alto and Dallas, Texas. Summers spent exploring East Texas deepened his love of Texas, the land, and the outdoors. He attended Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas, where he received a bachelor's degree in Forest Resource Management. In 1978 Louisiana Pacific Timber moved Cecil to Crestview, where he lived the rest of his life. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and just being out in nature. He also loved retelling stories of these escapades, with the hauls getting bigger with each telling. Cecil was a "people person" who never met a stranger. He spent his life making acquaintances and building friendships all over the Florida panhandle. In addition to work in the timber industry, Cecil also spent a portion of his career working with the Boy Scouts of America as a district executive and, in the later years, working as an insurance agent, which allowed him to talk to people all day for a living. The greatest joy in Cecil's life, though, was his family. He shared wonderful memories of time spent with his grandparents in East Texas. He took great pride in bragging about his children and grandchildren, who, he would assure you, were the smartest and best looking ones on the planet. He adored his sisters and was a typical older brother even as an adult, teasing them just as strongly as he loved them. But there was no one on Earth he loved as much as his mother. His father preceded Cecil in death. In addition to his mother in Mesquite, Texas, his survivors are his two sisters, Karen (husband Norris) Kent of Forney, Texas, and Janet (husband Dennis) Geddie of Mesquite, as well as his three children, Jeff (wife Dyane) Townley of Canton, Michigan; Jamie (husband Chris) Repesh of Gainesville, Virginia; and Justin (wife Karrie) Townley of Chicago, Illinois. He had eight grandchildren ranging in age from 9 months to 16 years, as well as many other beloved extended family members. A visitation is 5-7 p.m. Friday, July 15 at Whitehurst-Powell Funeral Home in Crestview. Everyone is encouraged to come share memories of Cecil with friends and family. Attire is casual; camouflage is welcome. A graveside service will be held at the family burial plot at Old Palestine Cemetery in Alto, Texas, in August. In lieu of flowers, the family invites people to make a donation to either The Rescued Rescuers ( http://werescuedogs.org/ ); the Crestview Kiwanis Public Service (P.O. Box 128, Crestview, FL 32536, Attn: Elizabeth Roy); or to any charity of their choice in Cecil's memory. Sign the guest book and offer condolences at http://obits.crestviewbulletin.com.
