God in his infinite wisdom saw fit to take our loved one and angel, John Junior Taylor, affectionately known to family and friends as Buck and JT. Buck was the son of the late John and Vera Taylor. He began his earthly life on July 21, 1950 in Granville County, North Carolina and departed his life on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at Hock Hospice Family Pavilion in Durham, North Carolina.
At an early age, Buck gave his life to Christ at Antioch Baptist Church in Oxford, North Carolina. He attended Granville County Public School. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, gardening, and watching sports.
Buck spent 25 years as a transfer truck driver. He consistently exceeded employer expectations and was willing to take on any task which showed his dedication and passion for his work as a truck driver.
