Charles Raymond Taylor, age 90, of Mount Vernon, passed away April 17, 2021 at the Knox Community Hospital. He was born November 23, 1930 in Wurtland, Kentucky to Clellie Dell and Arlie Bell (Pendleton) Taylor.
He was born into a loving family, 1 of 7 siblings. His childhood was filled with much mischief and joy. His father was a Pastor and he had many stories to tell of their adventures in ministry. After high school, Charles felt the call to ministry and attended Eastern Nazarene College, where he met his bride of 66 years Phyllis Arlene Taylor. In the journey of their lives together, they pastored many churches, and touched many lives for the Lord. They also raised five children and have been so privileged to see their families grow as well. Charles loved to read and study his Bible and then share with friends and loved ones. He also loved to collect sea shells on the beach and anything John Deere. He loved cheering on his Ohio State Buckeyes. Charles will be greatly missed by his loving wife and family. He recently had been living at the Eastern Star home.
