VICTORIA - Taylor Reed Copeland, 19, of Victoria passed away Monday, June 8, 2009. He was born Sept. 15, 1989 in Corpus Christi to Dewey Thomas Copeland and Susan Twilligear Teague. He is survived by his father, Dewey Thomas "Tom" Copeland; his mother, Susan Teague; his brother, Thomas "Ross" Copeland; and his grandparents, Oran D. and Tommie Copeland, and George W. and Betty Twilligear. Taylor had a generous heart; always willing to help wherever he was needed. Taylor was one of the rare individuals who would stand up for what was right no matter the personal cost. He was a student at Texas A&M, Kingsville and had aspirations to get degrees in business and law. His father taught him and his brother, Ross, to fish almost as soon as they could stand. Taylor loved to fish anywhere, particularly in Port Aransas. His presence will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
