Dwight Townley of Oxford, passed away Wednesday, October 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, GA; 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.
