James “Jim” Robert Taylor Sr., 84, of Providence, KY passed away Friday, December 10, 2021 at his residence.

Jim was born September 13, 1937 in Providence, KY to the late George Taylor and Frances Kirkman Taylor. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Hilda Jean Taylor, and brother, David Lee Taylor.

He is survived by one daughter, Robin Taylor of Providence; two sons, Jimmy (Catherine) Taylor of Victorville, CA and Darrell Taylor of Providence; eight grandchildren, Cassie Alexander, Nick Hardrick, Dylan Taylor, Jordyn Rohrer, Megan Walter, Brandi Bybee, Jacob McCain and Joseph McCain.; eleven great grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

He was a Jehovah’s Witness and a 20 year Air Force Veteran. His family knew him as a storyteller, and to say he was full of jokes would be an understatement. He enjoyed watching Westerns and was always very, very honest.

Private memorial services will be held at a later date.
