John E. Taylor, age 89 and a lifetime resident of Kosciusko County, passed away quietly on Monday, September 6, 2021 at 6:12 a.m. at Warsaw Meadows Care Center.
Born in Warsaw on October 23, 1931, he was the son of Charles E. and Helen (Betzer) Taylor. He attended Warsaw schools and was united in marriage to Julia M. Ellis. John and Julia spent more than forty-three years together before her passing on December 3, 1993.
John was a hard worker who worked for Zimmer as a lab tech. He dedicated more than twenty years there and retired shortly after Julia passed away. Together the pair logged many miles on their motorcycle and traveling the United States. John was quite handy and enjoyed woodworking, even making frames for family photos around the home. He also enjoyed bluegrass music and played the fiddle.
In addition to his wife, Julia Taylor, he was preceded in passing by his daughter, Pam Kreischer, his parents, and two siblings – brother, Phillip Taylor and sister, Sharon Jefferson. Those who survive with memories to cherish include son: Charles Alan Taylor Warsaw; sister, Patsy Hamilton of Warsaw; four grandchildren: Michael Morgan, Charles Anthony Taylor, Bonnie Uelk and Katie Taylor and their families including several great-grandchildren.
