Alvin Taylor Obituary

Alvin L. Taylor, 86, of Philo, passed away peacefully on March 12, 2024, at Cedar Hill Care Center in Zanesville, after an extended illness. Born on October 6, 1937, in the small, close-knit community of Cannelville, Ohio, Alvin was a son of the late Alvin C. and Mildred (Terril) Taylor. Alvin's journey through life was shared with his beloved wife of 67 years, Marcia (Douglass) Taylor, and together they raised a family that included four daughters: Pam (Gerry Pulley) Taylor, Kim Mohler, Kandi (Kirt) Frash, and Kerri (Tommy) Landerman.

Alvin also adored his great-grandchildren, Jayce, Mikey, Harmony, Becca, Randy, Bentley, Jaxson, Noah, Leighton, Braxton, Anna, Nylee, Kohen, Ava, Emma, Alivia, Luke, Harper, Nora, Brenleigh, and Ensley, who brought happiness and laughter into his life. Alvin is survived by his sister, Mary Krouskoupf, and brother-in-law, Gene Boetcher. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Richard James Taylor and Marvin Lee Taylor, his sister, Mona Boetcher, son-in-law, Randy Mohler and brother-in-law, Herman Krouskoupf. Before retirement, Alvin was a dedicated multi drill press operator at Rockwell. His strong work ethic and commitment to the community extended beyond his career. Alvin was an active member of the Roseville Lions Club, later joining the Duncan Falls chapter, where he was honored with the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellowship Award by Lions International. His unwavering dedication to the organization was to be commemorated with a 40-year pin of service this year. Alvin served his community with pride as the fire chief for the Roseville Volunteer Fire Department for 9 years. He was instrumental in organizing and establishing the first emergency squad for the village and its surrounding areas. From starting with a simple bread truck to achieving a fully equipped emergency squad, Alvin's efforts significantly enhanced the safety and well-being of his community. His tenure on the Roseville Village Council spanned 12 years, where his leadership and vision contributed to the growth and betterment of the village. A veteran, Alvin served 9 years in the Navy Reserve and was recognized with the Red, White, and Blue, award by the Roseville American Legion. His patriotism and service to his country were core tenets of his character. Alvin's faith was an essential part of his life, as he was an active member of St. Paul's Methodist Church. His commitment to his faith was evident in his participation and support of church activities. Beyond his service and work, Alvin found joy in the simpler pleasures of life. He was a long-time season ticket holder for the Philo Electrics, where he could be found cheering from his favorite spot on the 50-yard line. Alvin also cherished trips to Wheeling Island with his wife and daughters, creating lasting memories with those he loved most.
