Obituary for Jack Taylor

Lionel Gordon “Jack” Taylor, 79, completed his journey home on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 to the welcoming words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

Jack was born in Wayne County on January 13, 1939 to the late Lorenza H. Taylor and Mattie Lee Taylor. He had a 30-year career in fire service as a firefighter, engineer and driver with the City of Goldsboro Fire Department. Jack retired from GFD in 1991 and continued to operate Jack’s Body Shop, the family business he started in 1977. Along with his son, Jack continued to work in the family business until his health would not allow him to do so but was always available to give helpful advice on how to get the job done. Jack was a member of United In Christ Church in Goldsboro. He was devoted to the churches he was a member of, served as a deacon, and was involved in many activities where he shared the love of God.

Jack was a hard-working man, which was the theme of his life, he lived to work but occasionally you could find him fishing or picking up golf balls, as he would always do from early in life. He was the kind of man who was loyal to his family, who took great pride in caring and providing for them.

The family will receive friends on Friday, July 27, 2018 from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. at United In Christ Church followed by a service to celebrate Jack’s life at 2:00 p.m. with his pastor, Rev. Ira Williford, and Rev. Ray Smeltzer officiating. Interment will be in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.

Jack is survived by his wife of almost 61 years, Mary Taylor; daughter, Lynette Bryan and husband Steve; son, Kent Taylor and wife Lisa; grandchildren, Susan Reed and husband Damion and Eddie Taylor; and great-grandchildren, Adalynn and Mason. He is also survived by his sister, Myde Faircloth and brother, Craig Taylor.

In addition to his parents, Jack was preceded in death by his brother, Glenn Taylor.

Flowers are welcome or memorials may be made to the United In Christ Church, 1314 Patetown Road, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
