April 18, 1946 - March 29, 2016
It is with great sadness that the family of Earl Wayne Taylor announces his passing on March 29, 2016 at the age of 69 years. Born in East Preston on April 18, 1946, he was the son of the late Molly Taylor. Earl leaves behind his loving wife of 36 years, Barbara (MacInnes). He is also survived by his sisters, Maisie and Melissa; brother, Eric (Karen); sister-in-law, Nancy; nieces Hope (Andrew), Lisa, Marie, Amanda, Shannon, Stephanie, Lorraine (Abraham), Melanie, and Lynette (Jerry); nephews, Jamie, James, and Terence (Jolie); grandnieces, grandnephews, cousins and many extended family members and close friends. Besides his mother, Earl was predeceased by his sister, Moretta and brothers-in-law, Clarence and Dennis. Earl held many occupations throughout his life ranging from waiter to bricklayer’s laborer but he particularly enjoyed working at Dalhousie University on grounds maintenance prior to his retirement. During his many trips to Cape Breton with Barbara, he was able to enjoy his favorite past time, fly fishing. Earl was a member of the Citadel/Halifax Unit 373 of the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans Club and just prior to his passing was honored with a certificate and medal in recognition of his many years of service. Visitation will be held from 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, March 31 in Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main Street, Dartmouth. The funeral service will take place on Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. in the funeral home chapel. Interment in Dartmouth Memorial Gardens. Reception to follow in the funeral home.
