Robert G. Taylor Obituary
Robert G. Taylor

Fort Myers - Bob was born in Columbus, Ohio on September 26, 1946 and passed away on January 7, 2019 in North Fort Myers, Florida. He is survived by his brother, Douglas E. Taylor (Vincent C. White) and sister, Janice Gordon (Percy), a few other relatives and his many friends at The Crossings in Fort Myers, in Cape Coral and in Arnold, Maryland.

Bob was an army brat, a Vietnam war US Army veteran and worked as a manager in factories, including District Photo (a photo-finishing plant) in Greenbelt, Maryland. His early travels included Madrid Spain, Athens Greece, Tehran Iran and Ankara Turkey and Bob was stationed in Germany while in the army.

He was loved for his great sense of humor and easy-going disposition. Bob enjoyed fishing, boating and golf, but in recent years, he had to settle for memories of past adventures. He made the best of his debilitating illnesses.

Bob will be laid to rest at 1PM in Sarasota National Cemetery on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 with military honors. Prior to departure from Fort Myers, friends may join the family at Gallaher American Family Funeral Home, 2701 Cleveland Avenue, Fort Myers, Florida 33901 from 10 am to 11 am, with a brief memorial service at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to do so may instead donate to a veteran's organization of their choice.

The family wishes to express sincere and deep appreciation to the many caregivers who took care of Bob over the past few years at his prior home and recently, at The Crossings at Hancock Creek, including staff at the facility, caregivers from Comfort Keepers and from Hope Hospice. They made his transition from a home setting to assisted living easier. Bob's life was enriched by the conversations and activities and by meeting people with interesting personalities and backgrounds. He could be a challenge at times, but the care he received was remarkable. Thankfully, Bob had no apparent pain or suffering near the end. May he Rest In Peace.
