Robert Britland Taylor, Jr. 11-21-1931 08-14-2009

In memorium and celebration of the life of my uncle Robert Britland Taylor, Jr. November 21, 1931 - August 14, 2009.

Drove to Milford Massachusetts for my uncle's funeral. Robert Britland Taylor, Jr. was a my mother's oldest brother. He grew up in a modest home in Milford Massachusetts with his parents and eight brothers and sisters. He lived his whole life near his home and Trinity Epsicopal Church was the site of his baptism, confirmation, marriage and funeral. He enjoyed and was very good at singing, cooking and loved entertaining his friends and family. He was one of those individuals with huge hearts hidden behind a serious demeanor. He was a man of tremendous strength who demanded responsibility and participation of himself and those around him. While on the surface he was all business once you got to know him you realized he had a heart as big as all outdoors and that despite his discipline he liked to enjoy life. He fought for his country, was a retired Chief of Police of Hopdale Massachusetts, owned operated or helped with a couple of restaurants, and even in retirement worked as a truck driver. Thursday and Friday consisted of driving to Milford Massachuesetts, calling hours, visiting with relatives, funeral, reception, and driving back to Woodbridge Virginia.
