Obituary: John Richard Taylor


John Richard Taylor, 76, of Batesville passed away Monday, October 19, 2020, at The Springs of Batesville.

He was born in Batesville on July 3, 1944, to the late Lee and Evelyn Harris Taylor also of Batesville.

John was as friendly as he could be, but at the same time he knew how to hold his own if need be, and the workers at the Coastal Service really liked him and appreciated him as he was there for them several times.  He was a very likable guy with a very distinct walk that will be missed by many.

John is survived by his son, Roger Taylor from Seattle Washington; daughter, Joy Coon of Louisiana; sister, Baby Doll Cook of Batesville; six grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and several nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by three brothers and six sisters.

Graveside Service will be Saturday, October 24, 2020, at Oaklawn Cemetery in Batesville at 10:00 am.

Covid-19 precautions will be in place.
