Goodwin family left a message on December 22, 2016:
We only just located this website's obituary about Orval Townsend. We had not realized that he had passed on. We sincerely express our sympathies and apologise for this delay in response. The last we understood, Orval was ill in a hospital and we received no further word by email, as far as we know, and we did not realize the seriousness of his situation. We pray that the Lord gives you strength and lightens your burdens during your grief.

I knew Orval when he lived in Hamilton, MO…when his children were in grade school. We met through my former husband, Bob Finley. Bob was a Police officer in Chillicothe, MO. I did not actually know Orval’s birth given name for a couple of years. We always called him O T. He always made me laugh and was fun to be around. Every once in a while I would get on Facebook to see if he had signed up, but could never found him until today. It saddened me when I read his obituary. Didn’t expect to locate him in that fashion. My condolences to his entire family.

Clyde I was very sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. I always enjoyed meeting him and having lunch when I worked the road in Troop D. He told me the story of catching the thieves in his motel room in Paris (best I can recall). He was a character like you and always a good friend.
