DOTHAN: It is with great sadness that I announce Mr. John Taylor passed away last evening while in the hospital.
For several weeks John Taylor has been in the hospital battling to survive. He has suffered medical issues over the last several years.
John Taylor worked in the news bring it to you with Larry McKee. While they started with WWNT AM 1450 and later WDIG Radio, John Taylor and Larry McKee made a good team.
John Taylor loved his family. He worshipped the ground his wife walked on and those of his children and grandchildren.
John also loved education and was very passionate about the education. His tenure with McKee and the news gave him a inside look close up of local and statewide education. When Betty Peters served on the Alabama State School Board often times John would attend meetings in Montgomery.
John Taylor was also creative in making things work. He learned to cut audio and produce different audio clips to help with the presentation of stories on the radio.
To the family of John Taylor, without a doubt at all, he loved each of you very much. While he battled some health issues over the years I can not help to think that he was able to relax knowing each of you were grown and able to take care of yourselves. You are in our prayers.
FROM JOHN’S daughter on Facebook:
My family and I are devastated. My daddy has been sick for about a month now, and he fought with everything he had. He was the best man I’ve ever known. He was so strong, and overcame the impossible so many times before. Unfortunately for us, this time was different. The Lord called him home and he answered. Thank you to everyone that prayed with and for us this past month, we ask for your continued prayers as we learn to cope with this loss. I loved my daddy with every ounce of my being. I’ll always be his little girl ?
