Robert G. Taylor, Jr.

June 12, 1953 — February 2, 2024


WORCESTER: Robert G. Taylor, Jr., 70, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 2, in the comfort of his own home, after battling an illness.

   Mr. Taylor is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Susan M. (Collins) Taylor. Together they created a beautiful life and cherished memories that will forever be held close to their hearts. He also leaves behind three beloved sons: Eric Taylor and his wife Kathleen of Sacramento, CA; Christopher Taylor of Carlsbad, CA; and Matthew Taylor of Worcester. Additionally, he is survived by his dear sister Lory Taylor of Warren, R.I., granddaughter Madison Taylor - who was like a daughter to him - and a step-grandson Glen Nelson.

   Born in Philadelphia, PA, Mr. Taylor was the son of Robert G. Taylor, Sr., and Shirley (Vallee) Baillargeon. He attended Doherty High School and Quinsigamond Community College before embarking on a successful career at the Norton Company that spanned an impressive 37 years until retiring. Among his many accomplishments, Mr. Taylor selflessly served his country in the United States Army with great pride.

   Those who knew Mr. Taylor will fondly remember his zest for life and love for adventure. He had a deep appreciation for family trips and treasured every moment spent basking in the summer sun in Wells, Maine. His travels across the country - from coast to coast - allowed him to witness the beauty that our nation has to offer. He found solace in nurturing green spaces with passion as he indulged in landscaping endeavors. Long walks amidst nature and regular workouts at the gym invigorated him both physically and mentally. He and Susan loved the theater and enjoyed many wonderful productions at the Hanover Theater and in Las Vegas.  The family would like to thank the all the caregivers at the VNA Care Hospice for all their support and compassion helping Robert to stay home and to pass away.

   Mr. Taylor's generous spirit extended to the community as he selflessly coached little league baseball for several years, always eager to support and inspire young athletes.

  A visitation will be held on Saturday, February 10, from 10:00-11:30 AM at the Fay Brothers Funeral Home, located at 1 West Boylston Street, West Boylston. A memorial service will follow at 11:30 AM, where family and friends can come together to honor and celebrate Mr. Taylor's remarkable life.

  In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made in his honor to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital at 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105. This heartfelt gesture will support the invaluable work done by the hospital in saving and improving the lives of children battling serious illnesses.
