Anthony was one of the most kind heartiest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Always with a kind word, a quick joke, and a helping hand. He has spent many days at the shop laughing, joking, talking, drinking coffee and even giving a helping help at time. He will be greatly missed. We were honored to have him in ours lives and blessed that we got to spend Thursday and Friday with him before his passing.

My deepest condolences go out to the Taylor family during this time. My prayers, thoughts, and love are with each one of you. Brother Tony Taylor will be greatly missed yet never forgotten. I will always rememeber the home BIBLE study time we shared. Him sitting at the machine shop in Dover, him riding that lawn mower helping everyone he could, the stories he shared of Jesus,his family,his church, friends,the children in his life, and the precious friendship my husband(Brother William Callans) and Brother Tony Taylor shared. We love you Brother Tony Taylor and miss you dearly until me meet again. Rest in peace with our Lord until we meet you there.

Tony was a great man. He was funny. He loved the Lord. He never met a stranger. I love to talk with him before church on Sunday mornings. He always gave me a hug when I seen him. I miss him so very much. He is resting in Gods arms now. Rest in peace my brother. You will be missed deeply. Love you brother.
