Mr. Leo Townsend passed away unexpectedly at his home in Washington, DC on Wednesday, October 18, 2023. Leo was a Native Washingtonian and was the fourth child of eight children born on March 26, 1963, to Ernest Jr. and Annie Townsend. He was a sports enthusiast, a bicyclist, and a politician at heart. Leo has always been curious and a prankster. He was often judged by his tough exterior, but inside he was a gentle giant who loved making everyone laugh. He leaves to cherish his memories his one and only son, Leo Patrick Townsend, Greensboro, NC; six sisters, Ernestine Gladden, Josephine, Pamela, Patricia Townsend, Jorletta Ojelade, DC, and Cynthia Minick, Saluda, SC; and one brother, Robert Townsend, Frederick, MD.
“FOR HIS LIFE WE GIVE THANKS”
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort-II Corinthian 1:3.
