Edward Earl Taylor, 74, died Friday, January 11, 2019 at his home surrounded by his oving family.
He was born August 12, 1944 in Vicksburg, MS, a son of the late Edward A. Taylor and Nora Lee Daily Taylor.
Ed retired as a liaison for Federal Express in Memphis, Tennessee. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, Nascar races, Mustang week, and Pee Dee Car shows with his son. Being extremely mechanically inclined, Ed built a 100 ft. CB radio tower, numerous decks, additions to homes, concrete driveways, beautifully created lattice fences and built a deck for his mother that was completely taken apart and put back together in another location. Ed attended Forestbrook Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon. He and his beloved wife Linda in the years after his retirement traveled, worked in their yard, cooked for friends and helped meet the needs of friends at Church.
Ed is survived by his wife Linda of 54 years, his son James Randolph Taylor, daughter-in-law MaryEllen Taylor, and granddaughter Megan Lynn Taylor, and grandson Edward John Taylor. To Megan and Eddie, whom he loved so much, he was their adoring “Pop.”
