Obituary for WARREN EDWARD TAYLOR

Warren Edward Taylor was born on October 24, 1934 to the late Guy and Lillian Louise Jefferson Taylor. On September 2, 2015, after a lengthy illness, Warren quietly made his transition.

Warren was educated in the Calvert County Public Schools. In 1957, he married the late Catherine “Kitty” Smith. Out of their union, four children were born: Robin, Warren Montgom¬ery “Marty”, Glenn, and Dale. The promise of job opportunities led Warren to Connecticut where he worked for many years as a chauf¬feur and mechanic before returning to Mary¬land to raise his family.

On June 14, 1979, Warren married Paula Brown and they blended their families to¬gether. Tess and Stacey (Paula’s children) joined Warren’s three boys and when they welcomed Samantha, their family was complete: the Brady Bunch!

Warren always had a passion and a gift for working on anything with a motor. He could be found at almost any hour in or around his garage working on cars, trucks, boats, and lawn mowers. He was even known to have the ability to diagnose a car’s issue over the phone, simply by having the customer imitate the sound the car was making. No appointments were necessary and folks were known to drop in at any time to have Warren “take a look.” Everyone appreciated the carefree appointment policy at the garage….well….everyone except his wife, Paula. It seemed the only time Warren wanted to wash her car, change the oil or check the tire pressure was always the moment she was ready to “head out.”

Warren truly loved the work that he did as a mechanic and he passed his knowledge to his sons, nephews and anyone else who took an interest in learning; especially Vince Johnson, his protégé. The ga¬rage became a local hangout spot for many of his closest friends. Even when there was no official work being done, you could find Quentin and Charles “down in the bottom” hanging out in the garage. There were al¬ways lots of great times, funny stories, tall tales, and friendly arguments.

Warren was a quiet man who kept to himself most of the time. He stayed close to home so he wouldn’t miss a repeat of “Gunsmoke.” Occasionally, he traveled to Baltimore to watch his beloved Orioles play (until the Nationals came to town). Warren was a hard worker and a great provider. When he was not “tinkering” in the garage, he and Paula worked side by side in her cleaning business. And after his grandson, Josiah, was born, you rarely saw one without the other. His devotion to his grandchildren was undeniable.

Warren was not a church-goer nor did he profess Christianity. However, he is a testament to Christ’s promise of salvation. Warren realized that going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car. On July 26, 2015, Warren was offered salva¬tion and accepted the gift. Although his voice was faint, his conviction was strong, as he acknowledged his sins and professed Christ as his Lord and Savior. It doesn’t matter how you start, only how you finish. Warren finished strong.

Warren was preceded in death by his par¬ents, Guy and Louise Taylor; first wife: Cath¬erine; children: Robin and Glenn; siblings: James, George, Gor¬don, Charles, Matthew Taylor, Hester Johnson, Bertha Jefferson, Beula Reynolds, and Sarah Saunders; sister-in-law: Nellie Holland; and son-in-law: Michael Smith.

He leaves to cherish his memories, his wife: Paula; his children: Marty, Dale (Tina), David, Tess Smith, Stacey Gray (Frank), and Samantha; one brother: Wallen Taylor; 12 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren; 3 brothers-in-law, 6 sisters-in-law, longtime neighbor, Asia Broome; close friends: Quentin Weems, Charles Weems, Irvin Weems, and Vince Johnson; special nephews: Develand “Dev” Campbell and Gordon “Rony” Taylor, Jr.; special niece: Rose Hurley, as well as a host of relatives and friends.
