Not sure what to say?

Taylor Family, please except my condolences and sympathy on the passing of Mr. Walt. I worked out of the Manchester Office for Fisheries and got to know him during this time...great guy! Again, my sympathy to your family.

Our family and my life will never be the same! Friday night at 11:30, the Lord took Uncle Bubba home to the mansion HE had prepared for him. My love for Uncle Bubba was indescribable and unmeasurable! My children loved him just as much as I did and the void hes left in our hearts will never be filled. From a very young age I remember Uncle Bubba always being my favorite and I think he knew it. The bond between us was unbreakable. He taught me many things in life from horseback riding to...

Walt was a good man, a good Captain and a good Colonel. I had the privilege of being a sergeant during his tenure as Captain in Albany and his tenure as Colonel. He was always a soft spoken gentleman and a friend. He will be missed. My prayers go out to the family during this time of loss. May the Lord bless you and provide comfort to all of you.

So sorry to hear of Walts passing. We go back a long way in law enforcement. We had a chance to sit and talk several times in the last year and it was good to catch back up. Rest in peace my friend. Mike Yeager, Retired Sheriff, Coweta County, Georgia

Please accept my deepest sympathies during your time of loss. Please know that I am here for you.

May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead.


Sharing in your sorrow,


Sheriff Ezell Brown
Newton County Sheriff's Office

Thank you to you and your family for your service and sacrifices both to the United States of America and the State of Georgia.

The world has lost a dear man. Walter "Bubba" is my cousin. His father and my mother ( Frances Taylor Curley) were brother and sister. I remember sitting on Mama Taylor's front porch and visiting with all my cousins. I loved to come to Georgia from Indiana. It's a day gone by but the memories linger. We shared a mutual interest in genealogy and I could count on Bubba for a great story. Jeanette did her best to keep Walter alive, but it was not meant to be. My sympathy and love to...

So very sorry to learn of Walts death. He & I were in uniform together over many years & I always considered Walt a close friend. He was an officer who was looked up to, an officer who contributed much to law enforcement. Ill miss him.

What can I say about Walt Taylor! Wow, Walt was my good friend. We were both USMC veterans and enjoyed a lot of the same things. When we attended the statewide Sergeant's meetings, Walt and I always tagged up with some of the other Sergeants like Ed Friend, William Vickers, and Fred Baskins and go to Macon to see a movie. One I remember was Full Metal Jacket, a movie about the Marine Corps boot camp and Vietnam war. Walt and I both sat there and laughed at the boot camp scenes and...
