Cletus Homer Taylor, age 84, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 30, 2019, at his home in Pittsville, Maryland.
Born in Newark, Maryland, he was the son of the late John Henry Taylor and Georgie Webb Taylor.
He is survived by his wife, Katherine Truitt Taylor; sons, Cletus H. Taylor Jr. and Bruce A. Taylor (Stacey); daughter, Barbara A. Holloway; seven grandchildren, Hope, David, Amanda, Heather, Matthew, Christian and Daniel; one great-grandchild, Peyton; nieces, nephews and host of friends.
He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, much loved by family and friends.
A great practical joker, he was the biggest kid in the neighborhood.
He loved playing checkers and cards and listening to his bluegrass and classic country. A man of many hobbies – crabbing, fishing, auto racing (had to be a Ford) – he knew nothing was ever complete without his family. He will be greatly missed by many.
Services will be private. Arrangements are in the care of the Burbage Funeral Home in Berlin, Maryland.
Letters of condolence may be sent to the family at www.burbagefuneralhome.com. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in his memory to: Coastal Hospice at P.O. Box 1733, Salisbury, Maryland 21802.
