Obituary for WARREN MONTGOMERY TAYLOR

On February 19, 1959, God hand-delivered a bundle of joy, Warren Montgomery Taylor to expecting, trusting parents, Warren Edward and Catherine Taylor. And on April 29, 2016, that same God sent His angels to usher Warren to his heavenly home after a hard-fought battle with lung cancer.

Warren, known to most as Marty, graduated from Calvert High School in 1978 with a concentration in Food Service. He received his early education from the public schools in Hartford, Connecticut, his birthplace. Marty acquired his mechanical skills from long days working alongside his dad in the garage, but truly he was a jack-of-all-trades. For years he worked performing concrete and demolition work.

He was a proud big brother; attending to every need of his younger siblings. Anyone who truly knew him, noticed he made no distinction between his biological siblings and those he inherited through the marriage of his dad to his step-mother, Paula. He loved them all the same. Until his declining health stopped him, he called his youngest brother, Dale, no less than ten times every day before noon.

In the family, Marty took his role as big brother seriously, especially when it came to discipline. Warren, his dad, believed whole heartedly in “…spare the rod, spoil the child.” He recently revealed to his sisters a hatchet he had not quite buried with his father. Once, he and Glen were left home alone for the weekend while the rest of the family went to visit their Aunt Hester in New York. On the same day they left, Glen wrecked the second family car that night while speeding on the “back road.” That Sunday, Marty anxiously waited on the front step for his dad to return, so he could witness Glen’s whipping! Boy was he let down, because Warren’s only actions while calmly patting Glen on the shoulder were speaking the words, “Boy, don’t you let those girls upset you like that again.”

Marty was known as a kind and fun-loving person to all; willing to help anyone in need. All the kids in the family adored their Uncle Marty. While his nieces and nephews reverenced him by calling him uncle, when they were all together you hardly could tell if there was an adult in the bunch. Most days his illness left him with little strength; yet, he always found enough energy to delight his grandchildren.

Marty’s friends are far too numerous to list, but they all know where they stood with him. His life-partner, Joyce Chase, proved to be a solid rock. They shared lots of laughs together. She supported and cared for him throughout his fight with cancer.

He loved fishing and boat and drag racing. He would chose to vacation in North Carolina at the racetrack any day over an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii. The Washington Redskins was his favorite team. At the Hospice House, when he complained of being too cold, he refused to use his Redskins throw. Marty exclaimed it was for show only!

While Marty’s tall stature made it hard not to notice him, it was his tremendous heart that compelled you never to forget him. He was preceded in death, by his parents, Warren and Catherine Taylor; siblings: Robyn and Glen; his brother-in-law, Michael Smith; his uncles: James, George, Gordon, Charles and Matthew; aunts: Hester Johnson, Bertha Jefferson, Beula Reynolds, and Sarah Saunders.

He leaves to cherish his memory: best friend, Joyce Chase; step-mother, Paula Taylor; siblings: Dale (Tina) Taylor, David Anderson, Tess Smith, Stacey (Frank) Gray and Samantha Taylor; daughters: Patrice (Tavares) Brooks and Terrell White; grandchildren: Datavious Thomas, Shanice Holland, Alexander White, Ka’ Nyree, Ka’Tayah and Ka’Briah Brooks; uncle, Whallen Taylor; aunts: Buena Weems, Edith Taylor and Eliza Foote and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
