Robert Brown Taylor ’58

Bob was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert B. Taylor, Sr. (Bob and Mary). His family moved to Greensboro when he was two years old and except for time in school and the military, he lived in Greensboro for the remainder of his life.

Bob was a graduate of Davidson College and enjoyed a split career in banking and private business. He felt his work to be interesting and challenging and was still working routinely in his home office before his death.

He loved and was an active worshiper of First Presbyterian Church. He also shared a special love for the Village Chapel of Bald Head Island where he served on the board of governors for a number of years.

Bob enjoyed golf all his life though he couldn’t play in his later years. He loved all things coastal, and he spent many hours playing his piano.

Bob was predeceased by his parents, his son, Robert B. Taylor III (Bobby) and his sister Frances Taylor Boone. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Rebecca Walters Taylor (Becky); Charlotte residents, son, Joseph W. Taylor (Joe), daughter-in-law Rosalind, grandson Thomas Pappas, son, David D. Taylor, daughter-in-law Elizabeth, grandchildren, Broughton and William Taylor; and New York resident Tom Winslow.

Bob was thankful for the example of his parents and that God was always a part of their home. He deeply loved his family, his friends, and being a proud grandfather. His life was enriched by Becky’s love and his faith in God’s love. The family is blessed to have had Chantal Koffi, his caregiver, for the past year.
