Carlos Taylor Obituary, Death – The city of Montgomery has honored Officer Carlos Taylor by flying flags at half-staff today in his honor. The flags were lowered to this position earlier this morning. Officer Taylor was working for the Montgomery Police Department to serve and protect our community when he suffered a terrible injury that ultimately proved to be fatal. He lost his battle with the injuries. He had been suffering from the injuries for the previous six years up until the time of his passing. During his time in office, he and his staff received a number of accolades and prizes for great performance in the field of governmental financial accounting.
These awards were in recognition of the outstanding work that they did. Following his retirement, he entered the real estate business and spent the following 17 years working as an agent for Century 21 Darfus Realty. Since 1970, Carlos had been an active member of the First Presbyterian Church, where he finally attained the position of Elder and was a member of the committee that oversaw the most recent renovations to the structure. He enjoyed spending his free time playing golf and fishing, as well as going on vacations with his family, friends, and other loved ones.
Throughout his entire life, he has been a devoted fan of both the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Cincinnati Reds. Carlos is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Lyndel (Clendenen) Taylor; sons, Mark (Leah) Taylor of Naperville, Illinois, and Scott (Kimberly) Taylor of Lewis Center, Ohio; grandchildren, Olivia (fiance Jack Schwickerath), Chloe, Luke, William, Evelyn, and Sophia; sister, Charlotte (Taylor) Beyer; a number of nieces, nephews, and close friends; and sister-in-law.
