Obituary

Eddie Louis Taylor entered eternal rest in the early morning hours of Thursday, January 30, 2020 at the age of 70.

Eddie was born in Raford County, North Carolina and made Norfolk Virginia his permanent home. While he enjoyed visiting friends and family in other places, he always found himself returning to Norfolk to be with his family.

Eddie was good with his hands and made a living in general contracting and as a construction worker. He was known to all as a gentle and kindhearted man. Eddie was always willing to help anyone if he could. Eddie treasured a few things, his daughter, his Trudy, his family, and his peace. He was a witty and lighthearted man who believed in living a simple life.

Eddie leaves to cherish his memories his daughter Katherine Taylor, his best friend and special partner of eight years Trudy Stiff, five sisters Mary Taylor, Linda Taylor (Isaiah), Wanda Hart (Malcon), Anne Crump, and Pauline Taylor. He was loved and respected by three generations of nieces and nephews which he developed a special bond with most of them. Eddie will be fondly missed by several staff and patients at the Fresenius Dialysis Center. He spent 37 years receiving treatment from the Tidewater Drive location. He was preceded in death by his parents John H. Taylor Sr. and Catherine Taylor, and four brothers John Taylor Jr., Melvin Taylor, Frazier Taylor, and Donald Taylor.
