Joshua R. Townsend, 30
He was born a warrior, and I am so proud to be his brother and to have been his twin. I will never forget him
— Jordan Townsend, brother in The Lompoc Record
Townsend, a special forces soldier, was found unconscious and without a pulse in his room, according to KCOY-12 television news. His close friend, Ronnie Durbiano, told The Lompoc Record that Townsend "was amazingly loyal to all those he loved. There was nothing he wouldn't do for someone regardless of anything going on in his life."
