LifeNotes: Settle Townsend, Sr.

candle lifenotes11Settle Townsend, Sr., a longtime security guard at Warner Music Nashville, died Friday, Jan. 24. He worked with the label from 1980 until just a few years ago.

After being discharged from the service in 1955, Townsend, a Clarksville native, earned a degree in Biology and began working as a Research Assistant at Meharry University. At the time, Townsend needed extra income for his young family, so he joined Pinkerton security service, which led him to Warner/Reprise. Townsend began work at the label in August 1980, and still held the post nearly three decades later.

Visitation is Saturday, Feb. 1 from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. at First Baptist Church Capitol Hill, located at 625 Rosa Parks Blvd. The funeral service will be held Saturday, Feb. 1 at 11:30 a.m.
