William (“Bill”) N. Taylor, Jr. passed away on June 8, 2019 in Dunedin, Florida at the age of 82, surrounded by his dear wife Iris, good friend Joan, and the sounds of his favorite operas and concertos. He and Iris had lived for a number of years in Dunedin, located on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

The son of an Army officer, Bill was born August 26, 1936 in Honolulu, Hawai’i while his father was stationed at Schofield Barracks. Later tours of duty held by his father took Bill and his family to Palo Alto, California, Anchorage, Alaska, and Washington, D.C. He once remarked that he’d been to every state except for North Dakota.

He graduated from Frankfurt American High School in Frankfurt, Germany, and from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1959. He was a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity. After graduation, he served three years in the U.S. Army Security Agency, two years of which was spent in Bavaria in Southern Germany. Bill’s professional life was in sales and marketing and, later in life, in Eldercare in the Washington, D.C. area.

Bill is survived by his wife Iris Brookins; a daughter, Carole Taylor Garcia of Kentfield, California; a son, William Clayton Taylor of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina; and two granddaughters, Margaux Taylor Garcia and Elizabeth Grace (“Grace”) Taylor.

At his request, no formal services were held. Instead, his ashes were scattered in a private ceremony. The family suggests that any memorial contributions go to the Church of the Good Shepherd (Dunedin, FL) or the donor’s favorite library.

Bill was a son of William Naille Taylor and Starr Hope Jones.
