Thomas Lewis Taylor, 76, of Mechanicsville Maryland passed away peacefully at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital on May 13, 2021.
He was born on March 23, 1945 in Queens, New York, to Lewis Taylor and Mary Catherine Cooney. He was one of three children.
Tom joined the US Navy in 1965 and proudly served his country before being honorably released in 1972. He married the love of his life Marian Frances Taylor (Carriero) in North Merrick, New York. Together, they spent 49 years of happy marriage, forming a family and giving birth to three wonderful children. He was the loving Pop-Pop of ten grandchildren.
While working as an electronics technician in government, he still took the time to coach T-Ball, women’s softball and soccer. When he was not a coach, he was a soccer and lacrosse referee. He was a proud Scout leader for 15 years. Tom was not just a Boy Scout leader; he was the model for many children who admired him. For many years he was a listening ear and a help to everyone.
Tom was also a member of the Knights of Columbus IC Council, 3rd and 4th Degree, along with Father Andrew White Assembly. He was a usher at the church for many years.
He loved to bowling and loved to knock over 10 pins. He also enjoyed a good game of pinochle at the Northern Senior Center. When not volunteering, he worked part-time at Leonardtown Rec Center, as a soccer supervisor and referee.
He made many lifelong friends over the years he spent being part of his community and contributing in any way he could. He was loved by many and will be sadly missed.
Tom is survived by his wife Marian Frances Taylor of Mechanicsville, MD; his daughter Michelle Turkaly (Mark) of Lexington Park, MD; his sons William J. Taylor (Kara) of Middletown, DE and Thomas D. Taylor (Lauren) of North Kingstown, RI; and her brother James Peter Taylor (Paula) of Bayville, NY.
