Mr. Gordon Browning Taylor, 68, of Gallatin, passed away on June 9, 2017. He was born on September 22, 1948 to the late Willie and Virgie Taylor. He is also preceded in death by one son, David Wayne Taylor; four siblings, Bob Taylor, Bill Taylor, Nancy Brawner, and Barney Taylor.
Gordon was surrounded by a big loving family. He was always known as the family jokester and loved making everyone laugh. One major thing he enjoyed was saving stray animals, one being a goose and a cat. If Gordon ever saw an animal on the side of the road, he would always stop and take it home with him. He also enjoyed good ole blue grass music, and playing any type of string instrument. He never learned to read music and taught himself to play by ear. For many years he was a member of the Misty Morning Blue Grass group, and traveled to Alaska for a tour. If Gordon wasn’t saving animals or playing some type of instrument, you would find him doing something outside or just enjoying sitting on his porch swing with his dog. He would also spend time down at Rock Bridge Market to hang out with friends and just socialize. Gordon was a loving father, grandfather, and brother who will be truly missed.
He is survived by two sons, Billy(Connie) Taylor and Ronnie(Shannon) Taylor; six grandchildren, Chantara Taylor, Justin(Shelby) Taylor, Hailey(Chance) Warren, Jacob Taylor, Jared Taylor, and Zachary Taylor; three great-grandchildren, JayLee and Kayson Parker, and Olivia Taylor; three sisters, Wanda Miller, Betty Campbell, and Ruth Gentry; and one brother, Ray Taylor.
