George Taylor of Birmingham, passed away at the age of 85 on November 11, 2021. He was preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Emily Henry Taylor.

George was a resident of Birmingham for most of his life. He served with the 117th National Guard Reserve until 1960.

George and his wife enjoyed traveling the world. He visited Europe, China, Hawaii, Alaska, and Canada. But most of all, he loved wood working in his backyard shop.

He is survived by his son, Geoff Taylor; daughter Jennifer Taylor; grandchildren Aegwyn and Graeme; step grandchildren, Drew, Micah, and Noah; his brother, Wayne Taylor (Sydney); his sister Phyllis Otto; and many extended family members.
