Jan,

Has a regular with the HMGC retirees group, I cherish the golf games where Jim was my partner, or even my competitor, as it was such a pleasure to spend four hours on the golf course with him. I have never had more respected friend and golfer.

Pleasse accept our sympathy on your loss and we will remember Jim fondly for the rest of our lives.

Mrs. Taylor and family,our hearts go out to you at this time of sorrow. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. I will never forget the kindness of Mr. Taylor at Heatherdowns CC growing as a young player. He was always interested in on how we played in tournaments and just in general a kind and gentle man. God Bless you all.

When I was growing up in West Toledo I couldn't wait for the Sunday Blade to be delivered. I would spring out of bed as soon as I heard it hit the porch, hoping to snag the sports section before my father did. I devoured every bit, leaving the best for last: Jim Taylor's columns. I couldn't wait to see what he had to say about the Tigers or see his NFL Swami picks. No one was a better writer, and his work made me want to be a sports writer, too. When I was hired at the Blade in the 1980s, I didn't work in sports, but I couldn't believe my good fortune to work at the same paper as Jim Taylor. And when I joined the Blade golf league, I learned that he golfed as well as he wrote. Despite all of his talents, he was unfailingly humble, generous, kind and polite. He was an inspiration to many and will be missed. My condolences to his family.

Jim was one of the many who befriended a young UPI Detroit Sports Writer (me) and helped along the way.
He was especially helpful at golf tournaments, of course, and at baseball games.
I laugh at the many nickels that changed hands when we played "hit or no hit" to pass early innings at Tiger games.
We exchanged notes on coaching youth league and high school baseball.
We've lost a good person and a good friend. Adios...
