Obituary of Neal Charles Taylor

Please share a memory of Neal to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Neal Charles Taylor, 93, of Cayuga, passed away Thursday, June 13, 2014 at The Commons on St. Anthony Street. Born in Auburn, he was the son of the late Lloyd Christopher and Mary (Manzer) Taylor. Neal was an East High School graduate and an Airforce Veteran who proudly served in the Korean War. He was active in the VFW and marched well up into his late 80's in every Memorial Day Parade. He was employed for many years with NYSEG where he retired as an inspector.

Neal had a passion for wood working projects. Whether a fold down table, a hinged toy box or a detailed hutch he enjoyed his creative time alone in "HIS SHOP".  He was innovative at construction as he, himself built two of his own homes, working endless nights and weekends while working full time at NYSEG.

He enjoyed spending time with his family and leaves behind his wife of 51 years, Joan Emery Taylor; four sons, Randy, Rod, Gary and Kim Taylor; two step daughters Kathleen and Pam Perkins; a brother Ron (Betsy) Taylor; eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his first wife Goldie Brennan and a brother Gordon Taylor.

A private memorial prayer service will be held at the convenience of the family and burial will be at a later date. In lieu of flowers contributions in Neal's memory may be made to Sts. Peter & John Episcopal Church, 169 Genesee St., Auburn, NY 13021. Please visit to leave a condolence for the family.
