James Taylor Obituary
James S. Taylor, Jr.
was born December 6, 1934 in Houston, TX to J. Spence Taylor and Kathrine A. Hall Taylor and passed away Saturday, May 17, 2013. He began studying at Sewanee College of the South and continued on at University of Texas Law School where he graduated at the top 10% of his class Cum Laude.
Mr. Taylor was a real estate attorney as well as a 32nd Degree Mason of Holland No.1. He was an avid golfer and extremely proud of his lineage. He was the great-grandson of P.C.

He is survived by his daughter Michelle Taylor and son James S. Taylor, III. Other survivors include his grandchildren, Natalie Jo Klein, Jennifer Lea Klein and Renee Taylor. He is preceded in death by his long-time companion Connie Gross.
A Celebration of Life will be held on a future date. In lieu of usual remembrances, please make contributions to Houston Hospice 1905 Holcombe St. Houston, TX 77030.
