They celebrated 54 years of marriage right before his passing. To their union came Gloria Townsend, Larry Townsend, Stanley Townsend, and Lisa Pearson. Cy loved his wife, his children, and grand-kids, and prayed for them daily. Cy was a dedicated provider and accomplished many things over the course of his life. He served in the US Navy after high school, and worked for the US Postal Service where he retired as Postmaster. He worked for KN Energy, Wallace County. Sheriff’s Office, the Port of Corpus Christi, TX. and served in the Kansas National Guard. He received training in electrical, plumbing, and HVAC.
