1923 - 2016 Loren Newland Taylor was born October 19, 1923 in Deschler, Ohio to Orlin & Gladys Taylor. In 1929, his family moved to San Antonio. Loren graduated from Fox Tech in 1942. He served in the US Army in the mid-Pacific during World War II. Following the war, Loren returned to San Antonio to continue his 41-year career with Southwestern Bell, where he met his bride of 69 years, Ruth Joyner Taylor. Loren and Ruth were blessed with three children: Ronald (Lynda), Jo Anne (Mark Machaud) and Russell; six grandchildren: Amy Taylor Biggs (Brian), Missy Taylor Rodriguez (Carl), J.R. Taylor, Niki Taylor, Colby Machaud (Joni), Natalie Machaud Stridde (Kenton), Graham Taylor; 16 great-grandchildren: Taylor, Kacy, Kailey, Travis, Jacob, Jamey, Jagori, Karsen, Blake, Jackson, Nathan, Nickolas, Ellyana, Carson, Kaia, Bowie. A wonderful role model for his children and grandchildren who share his strong work ethic and dedication to family, Loren will always be remembered for his quick wit, good nature, love of conversation and devotion to God. We are thankful for countless, treasured memories and we glorify God for letting us be blessed by him for 93 years. On October 13, 2016, surrounded by his adoring family, Loren went Home to be with his Lord and Savior. We choose not mourn his passing, instead we celebrate his life, knowing we will see him again. A Memorial Service will be held at Woodland Baptist Church on Wednesday, October 19 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Woodland Baptist Church in San Antonio.
