Harland (Bud) Taylor of Houston, TX, passed away on January 17th, 2015 at the age of 83.

Bud was born on August 4, 1931, in Newark, Ohio, to Harlan Ridgely and Freda Josephine Taylor. He served in the Air Force from 1951-1955 before attending Ohio State, where he earned a degree in chemical engineering in 1961. He worked at Amoco Oil until his retirement in 1992.

Bud and his wife, Rosemary, were married in 1954. Together they had three children, eight grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. Bud was outgoing and funny, and loved spending time with his family and friends. His signature moustache was a great source of amusement for his great-grandchildren. He enjoyed cooking - especially barbecue - and loved finding new recipes to try on his family. He remained a loyal Ohio State Buckeye fan throughout his life.

Bud is survived by his wife, Rosemary, their three children (and their spouses); Cindy Dike and husband Ken, Andrew Taylor and wife Tracy, and Kevin Taylor and wife Cindy, and sister Margaret Graft. Bud is also survived by seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Bud is predeceased by his parents, his sister Dorothy Elizabeth Taylor, and one grandson, Jason Ridgely Taylor.

Services will be held on January 23, 2015, at 2:00pm, at Christ United Methodist Church, 9045 Howard Drive, in Houston.

Memorial contributions may be made to The Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America, 355 Lexington Ave. 15th Floor, New York, NY 10017.
