Mason was born January 3, 1997 in Tacoma WA to David Townsend and Tonya Tolbert. He grew up in Cocolalla, ID near Sandpoint. After graduating high school he became a sprinkler fitter apprentice and then took a position as a Ranch Hand in Montana.

He was a caring young man, always there for his family and friends with a charismatic smile and unequivocal sense of humor. His passion for the outdoors and love for trucks was unrelenting. Helping others was a large part of who he was. He had touched many hearts in such a short time of existence that he will always be loved and will truly be missed.

Mason was preceded in death by his mother Tonya Tolbert, Grandparents Floyd & Rozanne Tolbert of Tacoma, WA, and Uncle Wayne Myers of Athens, AL.

Guest Book

From: Mr.& Mrs. Larry Bartlette

So sorry to hear of the loss of your son and Savannah and Katie's brother. We don't know Mason, but I think we met him once over at the Lewitt residence this past year. He sounds like he was a terrific young man and that he was loved so much by this family. It is a very hard time to go through but we just wanted you to know that we are thinking about all of you and please accept our deepest sympathy.
