Obituary of William Vaughn Taylor

Contributor: crex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Our beloved "Pappa," William Vaughn Taylor, 85, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 26, 1999.He was born on July 6, 1914, in Wapello, Idaho, to Joseph Boyes Taylor and Angeline Margretta Thomas. He was the third of eight children born to Joseph and Margretta. Pappa married Mary Dorius Wright on January 29, 1941, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Pappa served in the Navy from 1932 to 1936. After being discharged, he entered Brigham Young University where he majored in sociology. Just prior to the start of World War II, he joined the Army Air Corps and after nine months of training, was commissioned as a second lieutenant. He was assigned to England to fly B-24s and with the protection of the Lord, returned safely to his family at the conclusion of his service. He left the military and after graduation from BYU, rejoined the United States Air Force in 1947. After serving in various domestic and overseas assignments, Colonel Taylor retired in 1961. Since that time he has lived in various locations in California and Utah. The Lord blessed him with the knowledge of how to preserve and enhance his physical health, and as a result, he developed the stamina and positive attitudes necessary to recover from colon cancer in 1990 and a serious heart attack in 1998. Pappa will be remembered not only for the love he had for his family, but for his strong faith. His "Never Give Up" approach to life demonstrated the power of the human mind and spirit to overcome physical illness and emotional setbacks. Vaughn is survived by his sons Vaughn and Charles Taylor, nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, as well as by his sisters Gwen and Madolyn, and his brothers Ken and Milton. He was preceded in death by his wife Mary, his mother and father, and his brothers Joseph Willard, James June, and Robert Clayne Taylor. A viewing will be held on Wednesday, September 29, 1999, at Wheeler Mortuary, 211 East 200 South, Springville, Utah, at 11 a.m. The funeral service will start at 12 noon that same day. Burial will be in the Evergreen Cemetery.

William Vaughn Taylor was born on 6 Jul 1914
William Vaughn Taylor was 15 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

William Vaughn Taylor was 25 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

William Vaughn Taylor was 43 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

William Vaughn Taylor was 75 years old when Cold War: Fall of the Berlin Wall: East Germany opens checkpoints in the Berlin Wall, allowing its citizens to travel to West Berlin.
