Obituary for Bert Townsend

Bert R. Townsend, 94, of Billings, Montana was welcomed home on Thursday evening, September 13, surrounded by his loving family.
The funeral service for Bert will be held at 10:00 am, Thursday, September 20th in the Smith Funeral Chapel in Laurel, Montana with Loren Coleman, Teri Foster, and Kara Schuebel officiating. Private family interment will occur at a different time.
Bert was born on March 31, 1924, in Bunker, Missouri. He married his sweetheart, Bernice, on December 23, 1943. They made their home in Alliance, Nebraska; Scottsbluff, Nebraska; Cody, Wyoming; and in 1988 moved to Powell, Wyoming. He shared his life with Bernice for just shy of 67 years. He moved in April 2014 to Billings, Montana to be under the care of daughter, Donna. Last October he moved to Tender Nest and in April 2018 to Bella Terra in Billings.
Bert worked a ranch in Alliance and spent many years in Scottsbluff as a general contractor building many beautiful, custom homes. He spent many hours in Cody and Powell continuing his carpentry. He was a craftsman at heart and worked with determination and resourcefulness. He loved hunting and fishing and God's natural creation but most of all the Creator. He chose to serve God in his early youth and kept true to that purpose. He had a deep care for others.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Bernice, his infant son, infant granddaughter, brothers Warren, Eugene, and William and sisters Mary, Alice, Lillie, and Fern.
He is survived by one brother Ray(Margaret); daughters Linda(Mike), Donna, and Thelma(Stan); grandchildren Craig, Karen(Tallon), Kindra(Chris), Mikaela(Dave), Kevin(Debbie), Jennelle(Trent), and Jennifer; great-grandchildren Hailey and Logan, Ben, Briana and Madelyn, and Reese and Max and many relatives and friends.
The family wishes to thank the caring staff at TenderNest, Bella Terra, and Stillwater Hospice. Condolences may be shared with the family by visiting smithfuneralchapels.com.
