G. Reed Taylor

JEFFERSON — G. Reed Taylor, age 94, of Hickory Ct., Jefferson, died Friday, Jan. 17, 2014, at Ashtabula County Medical Center.

He was born June 6, 1919, in Clarksburg, W.Va., the son of Archie Campbell and Ava Alice (Bassford) Taylor.

Mr. Taylor graduated from Alderson-Broaddus College in Philippi, W.Va., and received his Masters Degree from  West Virginia University in Morgantown, W.Va.

He was a school administrator for Buckeye Local Schools in Ashtabula and was an ordained American Baptist Minister serving the Minister-At-Large Program for many years. During World War II, he was an Army Officer in Field Artillery, as an observer on land and air, serving in Europe, receiving the Air Medal, three Oak Leaf Clusters and other citations.

He was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Ashtabula, Ohio and a member of the Masonic Lodge F & AM #2 of Wellsburg, W.Va.

Surviving him is his daughter, Donna (David) Householder of Monaca, Pa.; grandchildren, Sherri Lynne (Jon-Paul) McNiff, Josef A. Hirschmann III and Clara Hirschmann; and two brothers, Arch K. Taylor of Sarasota, Fla. and Richard H. Taylor of Wellsburg, W.Va.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Mary Ruth Taylor in 2009; a great-grandson, Nathan Reed Taylor; and two sisters, Mildred T. Arnett and Ruth T. Crawford.

Of course, his life was not really ended by his death, only changed. He made the great step from faith into vision. He found a life far more beautiful than the eye of man has ever seen, more beautiful than the ear of man has ever heard and more beautiful than the mind of man has ever imagined.

Funeral Services will be held 11 a.m., Monday, Jan. 20th, at the First Baptist Church, 4353 Park Ave., Ashtabula, with the Rev. Doug Wright officiating. Burial will be in Franklin Cemetery in Wellsburg, W.Va.

Calling Hours will be from 2 to 5 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 19th, at the Jefferson Home of FLEMING & BILLMAN FUNERAL DIRECTORS, 49 W. Jefferson St., Jefferson, and also from 10 a.m. until the time of Service, Monday, at the Church.

Memorial contributions can be made to First Baptist Church, 4353 Park St., Ashtabula, Ohio 44004 or to The United Church, 75 S. Broadway, Geneva, Ohio 44041.
