Bobby Eugene Taylor, Sr., age 83, passed away on January 31, 2022. He was born on October 10, 1938 to the late Riley Bruce Taylor and Lula Howell Taylor. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Madge Taylor; infant son, James David Taylor; sisters, Beulah May, Faye Campbell and brothers, Roger Taylor, Wiley Taylor, Joe Dan Taylor, and Vonley Howell. Bobby was a wonderful dad and loved his kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. He lovingly called his grandchildren “grandbabes” and they were the light of his life. He had always loved all kids in general, whether they were his or not. Bobby was a people-person and had never met a stranger, and it seemed people were always drawn to him. You may have met him as a stranger but you always left as a friend. Anytime you visited he would walk your car down the driveway still talking. Bobby was a very hard worker and worked many years at his sawmill, often daylight to dark. He loved the Lord and Donald Trump. Those left to cherish his memories include his four children, Bobby Eugene Taylor and wife Cris, Tammy Tester, Kim Isaacs and husband Roger, and John Taylor; sisters, Virginia Ackerman, Ruth Lipford, Ginger Woods, Myrtle Testerman; sisters-in-law, Mary Alice Price (Curtis), Patsy Taylor and children; brother-in-law, James Stanton; grandchildren, Amanda Hyatt (Larry), Ashley Taylor (Tommy Key), Joey Ward (Christy), Travis Ward (Taylor), Robbie Tester (Ruby), J.D.
