Terry Kent Taylor, age 76, of Marion passed away on November 29 at Marion General Hospital. He was the son of the late Harald “Dutch” Taylor and Olive (Miller) Taylor. He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Nerissa and Erik Draeger, and his former wife, Sue Taylor.
Terry was born in Connorsville, Indiana, but moved to Lakeland, Florida at a very young age. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown College in Kentucky and a Masters of Social Work degree from Michigan State University. He spent his career in service to improving the lives of others, working for a series of Christian organizations in Michigan and Indiana.
