Mr. Taylor was born in Hertford County, NC on July 1, 1965, a son of the late Jesse Ervin and Christine Taylor Taylor.

He joined the Walmart family as a greeter, and this became his life for over 20 years, bringing him out of his shell.

Left to cherish his memory are two sisters, Linda T. Askew and Sally Geneva Keeter of Ahoskie, NC; a brother, Willie Taylor and wife Mary Ellen of Aulander, NC; and numerous nieces and nephews.
