Mr. Victor Townsel was a dedicated family man, a devout deacon/member of the First Missionary Baptist Church, a philanthropist of his community, a “master” bricklayer and plasterer, and a produce salesman - donating a lot more than he sold!

Our family endeavored to honor him by renaming Lynch Street (where he lived all of his adult life until his death -January 1982) to Victor Townsel Lane.
