Lloyd L. Taylor

Surrounded by family at home, Lloyd L. Taylor, 95, of Zionsville, entered into Eternal Life on March 22, 2014.

He was born on March 12, 1919, in rural Lawrence County, to Wes and Ruth Ida (Mosier) Taylor, who preceded him in death. Lloyd served his country during World War II as a flight instructor in the United States Army Air Corp.

Lloyd is survived by his wife and one true love, Martha Jane (Reuter) Taylor, whom he married on May 7, 1944. Also surviving are his three children: Stephen L. (Elizabeth), of Indianapolis; P. Douglas (Sharyn), of Zionsville; and Nancy C. (Michael) Thayer, of Zionsville. He is survived by two grandchildren: Natalie J. (Scott) Kruger, of Zionsville, and Dean M. (Kate) Thayer, of Zeeland, Mich.; and seven great-grandchildren: Brandon, Sydney and Adam Kruger, of Zionsville, and Rebekah, Luke, Norah, and Josh Thayer, of Zeeland.

Lloyd founded Taylor Oil Company in 1948 in Zionsville and faithfully reported to work every day until age 92. He was a role model and mentor in business to many people in the community and surrounding counties but especially to Jeff (Benita) Thomasson and Lloyd’s many faithful employees at Taylor Oil. Lloyd’s integrity and devotion to family have provided a lasting legacy for many.

Lloyd was a member of Charles F. Frank Lodge 760 and American Legion Post 79 more than 50 years. He was also a dedicated member of the Zionsville Cemetery Board and contributed significantly to its upkeep and restoration as a way to serve his community.

The family would like to acknowledge and thank Tendercare Home Health Services and St. Vincent Hospice for their dedicated and professional care during Lloyd’s confinement at home.

Calling hours for Lloyd were held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, March 24, at Flanner and Buchanan -Zionsville. Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 25, at Salem United Methodist Church, 6701 S. 800 E. (Kissel Road), with calling there from 10 a.m. until time of service. Burial followed at Zionsville Cemetery, where a section has been named in Lloyd’s honor.

Contributions in Lloyd’s memory may be made to Zionsville Cemetery Association, P. O. Box 152, Zionsville, IN 46077, or to Salem United Methodist Church.
