James Taylor

April 23, 1959 — April 25, 2021

Brother James Taylor of El Dorado, Arkansas, was born April 23, 1959, to John B. and Henry Mae Taylor.

On April 25, 2021, he departed this life at the Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.

James united with Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church at an early age, where he served faithfully.  He was a member of the Usher Board and Brotherhood/Laymen's Ministry.  Also, participated in the Bethlehem Male Chorus and Van Ministry.  Upon Graduating from El Dorado High School in 1977, he attended SAU- Magnolia. He was employed at Welsco until his health would no longer allow it.

James had a love for his family, friends and a passion for helping others with no expectations of receiving anything in return.  He loved working with his hands, repairing lawnmowers, and working on cars.  His special love interest was his 1970 Red Chevelle SS.  When he was driving it, you would know it; you could hear those tires and all from a mile away.

James had a smile that would brighten a room and loved to talk.  He never met a stranger.  If you needed to find him, he was there at home sitting outside under the garage listening to music with his trusting companion Max (his German Shephard).

He was preceded in death by his parents John B. and Henry Mae Taylor, two brothers Rev. Jessie (Janice)Brush and Randy (Karen) Taylor, three nephews Orenthal Jerome Brush, Kelvin L. Taylor, and Jeremy B. Taylor; 1 Aunt Doris Boone.

James loving and fond memories will be cherished by his daughter Sylandria R. Taylor; 3 brothers, Jerry Taylor, Chester (Vanessa) Taylor, and Roy D. Taylor; 2 sisters, Addie M. Monk and Janice Taylor-Moore, of all El Dorado, Arkansas.  Also, a very Special Friend/Companion Dorothy Moore, along with a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
