After a long, well-lived life of 89 years, Charles R. "Chuck" Taylor passed away peacefully at Weatherwood Manor in Greensburg, PA, on November 14, 2017. Born November 10, 1928, in Columbia Hospital in Wilkinsburg, PA. He was the only child of Robert and Regina (Mobus) Taylor. He was raised in Turtle Creek, PA and attended Turtle Creek High School. He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, (Laura) Marjorie (Thompson) Taylor; son, Dr. Gary (Mary Alice) Taylor, of Greensburg, PA, daughters, Sharon Bieber, of Ovilla, TX, and Leslie (James) Minteer, of North Huntingdon, PA. He was predeceased by daughter, Patricia (surviving, Randy), of Houston, TX. He was an adoring "Pop-Pop" to eight grandchildren, Lauren and Rebecca Taylor, Ryan and Daniel Bieber, Jessica (Levi) Hein, Jacob Minteer, and Kevin and Louis Durney. He served in the US Army as a radar specialist at Ft. Dix, NJ during the Korean Conflict. Following that, he worked for Westinghouse Research Center in Churchill, PA and was an Electrical Engineer by trade. He raised four children in Monroeville, PA and was a member of Monroeville United Methodist Church. His integrity, sense of humor, and dedication to family were his greatest attributes. He was a dedicated Pittsburgh sports fan (especially loved his "Buccos") and was rarely seen without some sort of Pittsburgh paraphernalia on. His trademark was his Converse "Chuck Taylor" tennis shoes. He could often be found cheering loudly for his grandchildren at softball and soccer games. He loved hunting and fishing and was an avid reader, birdwatcher, and crossword puzzle solver. He loved the beach and his many family trips to Myrtle Beach, SC and Destin, Florida. Chuck was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. His sweetness and sense of humor will be missed by all. Friends will be received Friday 6-9 p.m. at the JOBE FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY, INC. (MONROEVILLE/PLUM CHAPEL), corner of (445) Beatty Rd. and 48 North, Monroeville, (412-856-4747). Funeral Service will be held at Monroeville United Methodist Church Saturday at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Salvation Army (SalvationArmyUSA.org).
