TAYLOR, GEORGE, a Tampa Native, passed away April 21, 2011. He was born on September 14, 1936 at Tampa General Hospital. He grew up in Seminole Heights (“South Street Bunch”) and resided in Temple Terrace since 1960. He was a 1955 graduate of Hillsborough High School. He was employed at Florida Portland Cement for 42 years. George was very active with Temple Terrace Little League where he coached for 6 years and was a past vice president of the league. He also was a founding member of the Temple Terrace Youth Sports Association where he coached in the football program. After retirement, George resided in Cape Hatteras, NC for 10 years and had been visiting the area for over 50 years and was very active in the community. He loved fishing on the beach and offshore but he loved the spirit and the people of the Island most of all. He also loved going to Key West with friends and family during Lobster Season. He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Sylvia (Midgett) Taylor, who was his childhood sweetheart since junior high school. He is also survived by his loving children, son George (Traci) Taylor, daughters, Charlotte (Joe) Eppich, Linda (Jeff) Abramson and Melody (Anthony) Kocsis. He adored his 9 grandchildren, Kristen, Marlee, Jeffrey, Joey, Dallas, Trey, Madison, Cameron and Hayden. He is also survived by his brother, James (Betty) Davis, his brother-in-law Allen Midgette, his uncle Percy (Dottie) Midgett, and many nephews, nieces and cousins. God be with you till we meet again. Contributions can be made to the Lewy Bodies Dementia Foundation (www.lbda.org). Due to a family illness, the memorial service will be postponed to a later date.
