|Let the memory of George be with us forever|
George H. Taylor, 64, of Lincoln, RI passed peacefully on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 with his family by his side. He was the husband of Carolyn J. (Horlbogen) Taylor for twenty-six years. Born in Pawtucket, RI, he was the son of the late Walter S. Taylor and Joyce C. (Foote) Taylor.
Besides his wife, he is survived by his children, Kimberly J. Taylor of Warwick, RI, Georgia A. Taylor of Lincoln, RI, and Joyce Bingeman of Lincoln, NE, his brothers and sisters Walter Taylor, Gayle Taylor, Joyce Greene, Loriann Morris, and grandson Anthony Fragaso. Brother of the late William Taylor and Stephen Taylor. He was the beloved uncle of many nieces and nephews, and the life-long friend of John Abbott.
George was retired. He began his career as a 1st class ship fitter and was especially proud of the repair work he did on the Eagle training ship for the Coast Guard Academy. He then returned to college and earned his Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management. He worked at the Westin Hotel in Providence as a Maintenance Engineer and then became the Banquet Manager. His charismatic personality and strong relationships with his staff helped him facilitate many successful events.
George was quite the character. His family members and friends would all agree that he would become the life of the party by the end of the night. His outgoing personality always made for the best stories that were always so animated and full of life.
In his free time he would love to garden and grow fresh vegetables for his family, go fishing on the the rocks at Galilee, cook the best seafood (especially stuffies) and spend time camping with his friends and family.
