December 4, 1962 - August 21, 2020
Michael David Taylor, lifetime resident of Kaufman, passed away August 21, 2020. Michael, known to most as ‘Mike’, was born December 4, 1962 in Kaufman to Troy and Jeanette (Freeman) Taylor. His parents along with his ‘bonus mom’, Bobbie Jo Taylor, preceded him in death along with his grandparents: Warren and Geneva Freeman and Robert Lee and Marie Taylor. Mike worked in the construction field for over 40 years. He was a master of drywalling, and it came to be a passion of his life. Mike loved being outdoors with hunting or fishing being some of his favorite things to do. Anytime his family was around him, his heart was full and he made sure to tell each of them how much he loved them every day. Mike was always there to cut a joke and trying to get someone laugh and his sense of humor was truly one-of-a-kind. He had a great ability to put everyone he met at ease, be the person young or old, and his signature sense of humor brightened up every gathering. A generous man with a smile for all, Mike will be greatly missed by all whose lives he touched. He leaves his memory and laughs to be cherished by his spouse, Sharon McClain of Kaufman; sons: David Allen Taylor of Kaufman, and Robert Lee Taylor of Eustace; daughters: Cynthia Ivey-Simpson and Jessica Chambless of Kemp; grandchildren: David Jr., Tristin, Zoey, Willow, Alley, Crystal, Lucas, Maylin, Robert Jr., Cheyenne, Bryan, Morgan, Carley, and Dillion; siblings: Nancy Barton and husband, Doug of Garland, Donald Taylor and wife, Susan of Kaufman, Linda Padgett and husband, Ronald of Chandler, TX and Kenny Driever and wife, Rondauf of Hitchcock, OK; aunt, Myrtle Wade, uncle, Richard Freeman, cousin, Penny Whiteside as well as numerous nieces and nephews and a host of friends, all of whom will miss him dearly.

The family will receive friends 5-7pm, Monday, Aug. 24, at the funeral home.
