Dwight Townley
Caldwell & Cowan Funeral Home

Dwight Townley, of Oxford, passed away Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018, at the age of 60. Whether at his job or working on the farm, Dwight took pride in being a hard worker. In 2012, the Dawson County Fire Department honored his exceptional work ethic with the Lifetime Achievement Award. As a man who valued family and loved being outdoors, he cultivated a strong bond with sons, Jason and Travis, while camping, trout fishing, watching them play sports and volunteering as a Cub Scout leader for their Troop. Funny and personable, Dwight was the center of attention at social gatherings – always cracking jokes and making others laugh. He was also known for his love of gospel music and singing in church. Dwight was preceded in death by his parents, L.B. Ford and Orlene (Cantrell) Townley.  

Survivors include wife, Susan Townley, of Oxford; sons, Jason Ford Townley, of Perry, Travis Austin Townley, of Oxford; sister and brother-in-law, Joyce and Alex Pledger, of Jefferson; brothers and sisters-in-law, Randall and Jackie Townley, of Cleveland; Roger and Becky Townley, of Cumming, Cecil and Dottie Townley, of Ellijay, Ronald and Wynell Townley, Don and Lynda Townley, all of Dawsonville; as well as several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

A Funeral Service for Dwight will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Chapel of Caldwell & Cowan, 1215 Access Road, in Covington, with Pastor Ron Heiber and Dr. Kerry Duncan officiating. Interment will follow in Lawnwood Memorial Park, Covington. Friends may visit with the family at the funeral home Friday, October 19, from 6 to 8 p.m.
