William Taylor Sr.

April 9, 1927-Aug. 14, 2014

Our father, grandfather and great-grandfather, William T. Taylor Sr., left this world on the evening of Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014, surrounded by his family. After one year, six months and nine days he joined his wife, Dodie.

Dad was born April 9, 1927, to Lois K. Taylor and Christiana Beck Taylor in Minot. He was the 10th child out of 12 children, six brothers and five sisters.

Dad loved to hunt, square dance and fish. Two days before he passed away he was fishing for the big one that got away. Dad also liked to go four-wheeling and snowmobiling. He would go for coffee with his buddies and spend half the morning shooting the bull with them. Dad could talk to anybody for hours. He loved to travel; they put more than 100,000 miles on their motor home.

The family would like to thank Family First Care and Hospice of Spokane for the wonderful care they gave Dad.

Bill Sr. leaves behind five children, nine grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren; many nephews and nieces.

Rest in peace Dad. Online guestbook at (www.riplingerfuneralhome.com).
