Paul Townsend, Coronado Class of 1982 & Faculty
December 4, 1963 to August 28, 2017 

       (The Family:  Joey, Laney, Sarah, Paul, Luke, Mary and Peter)


Paul Townsend went to be with the Lord on August 28, 2017 after surgical complications. Paul was a loving husband, a selfless father, a fearless brother, and a true friend. 

Paul taught at several different schools in the Scottsdale Unified School District. Only weeks ago, he received his dream position as the drama teacher at Coronado High School. He will be missed by many.

Paul leaves behind his loving wife and five beautiful children. This account is setup to directly help the family with the medical expenses associated with his surgery and funeral expenses. 

Schedule as of September 4, 2017 - Posted on Paul's Memorial Fundraiser Website:

Hello dear family and friends. Paul's funeral is scheduled for Saturday, September 16. It will have the schedule listed below so that people can participate as much or as little as they want.
