ADDISON – With deepest sorrow, we announce that Robert ‘Robbie’ Taylor, 37, our beloved son, father, fiancé, brother, family member and friend passed suddenly on Sunday, January 13, 2019, at his home from chronic health complications.
Those who knew Robbie, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. He will be missed every day by his mother, Mona Taylor, his children daughter, Hannah Taylor and son, Drius Taylor; his fiancée, Bobbi Sue Gray, his brother, Corey Taylor and fiancée, Mae Polchies; special soon to be sisters-in-law, Elizabeth Stover and Kayli Gray; future in-laws, Bobby & Susan Gray; Aunts & Uncles, Rhonda & Tony French, and Mona & Bully Taylor, and cousins, Holly French Swilo and Denise Cilley; lifelong friend since childhood, Rocky Ellsmore, Jr.; good friend, Luke Smith; his great buddy, Uncle Frank and Aunt Sherry Brooks; along with many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and many, many great friends, and his fur baby, Bear.
Robbie was born on August 6, 1981, in Machias to Mona Taylor and the late Albert Taylor. From day one, he brought smiles to the faces of everyone he met. At a very young age, Robbie started taking things apart and putting them back together on his own. This developed into a special gift, and he used this skill to fix things for his friends and family (and even complete strangers). He could usually be found under the hood of a friend’s car, installing some type of equipment, or tinkering with something that was unfixable until he fixed it–always willing to help without expecting anything in return. He was a gentle giant with a big heart who helped others right to the end, carrying on in the footsteps of his Mammie & Mackie (Bea & Phil).
Robbie enjoyed many things. His very favorite was spending precious time with his two children. He could bring out their smiles and giggles like no one else. He enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing, and also loved riding his father’s motorcycle. He was a member of the Red Knights Motorcycle Club and especially enjoyed the annual Toys for Tots ride (knowing that it was helping children in need). He loved playing guitar with his brother, Corey, playing cards with Uncle Frank and Aunt Sherry, and making people laugh with his joking and imitations.
A memorial service for Robbie will be held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, January 19, at the Jonesport Pentecostal Church. Relatives and friends are welcome to visit from Noon until the time of service.
In lieu of flowers, those who wish to remember Robbie in a special way, may make gifts in his memory to the Bangor Humane Society, 693 Mt. Hope Ave, Bangor, ME 04401. Any gifts will honor his lifelong love for helping animals in need.
Service: 1:00 pm, Saturday, January 19, 2019, Jonesport Pentecostal Church.
