Obituary for OSCAR VARNELL TAYLOR
Hi, I'm Oscar Varnell Taylor. I was born in Owings, MD on January 5, 1950 to John William Taylor (deceased), and Lillian Taylor. I was also known as 'OT' and Otis. I was raised in Washington, DC and I later moved back to Maryland. I was educated in the District of Columbia Public Schools and later transferred to the Calvert County Public School system. I married the woman of my dreams and we were together for 45 years. I served in the United States Army from October 20, 1967 to October 17, 1969. I worked with the Department of the Interior National Park Service, Dicks Construction, Howlin Concrete, and the Annapolis Department of Public Works. I returned to Howlin Concrete where I retired on September 15, 2011. I lived a simple life - working, taking care of my family, and listening to music. I loved the Oldies but Goodies especially listening to them on the Holidays with family and friends. One of my favorite oldies was 'Just Because' and my favorite Gospel songs were 'Walk Around Heaven”, 'You are the Reason”, 'One Day at a Time”, and 'No Charge'. Many of you, who knew me, knew I had two passions in life. One - my Love for my wife, soul mate, and best friend Claudia Wilson- Taylor and two - Classic Cars. I was a proud owner of a 1955 Chevy when I first met the woman of my dreams. I was also a member of the 'Old School Cruiser Car Club'. My favorite meal was Pork Chops. I didn't like to share them. Claudia would fix them every Monday night for dinner. If someone came by around dinner time, I would tell Claudia to hide the pork chops in the oven. I leave to cherish my memories: my devoted wife Claudia, my mother Lillian Taylor; my beloved daughter Alicia Spriggs; two granddaughters Taelor and Alexis; two sisters Laurene Qualls (Teddy) andJoan Carroll; three brothers-in-law Bobby (Earlene); Jimmy (Sheraline) and Randu (Vanessa); three sisters-in-law Joan Smith-Sharps (Norman), Barbara Ann, and Cee Cee; as well as a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, family and friends – with whom I had a special relationship with all. I also leave to cherish my memories: my Dash-In, 7-11, and 2/4 friends and my Howlin Concrete family.
