Jimmie Delmar Taylor
Jimmie D. Taylor, 82, of Glasgow, died Friday, Oct. 18, 2019 at his home.
Jimmie was born Nov. 7, 1936 to the late Archie and Hazel Taylor, of Eighty Eight.
In 1959, he joined forces with Lyon Hutcherson Jr. at the Farmers Livestock Market in Glasgow as a valued assistant and worked until the business was sold in 2008. Jimmie supervised the construction of the first livestock market on the New Bowling Green Road and was instrumental in rebuilding the market after a tragic fire that destroyed most of the building. He treasured his friendship with Lyon.
His passion in life was the American Quarter Horse. He would purchase young colts and spend many hours patiently teaching them how to become a winner in the show ring. Jimmie made many lifelong friends showing his horses. He was a member of Beaumont United Methodist Church.
Survivors include his children, Jeff (Sharlene) Taylor, Jackie (Carlesia) Taylor, Debbie Combest, James Taylor and Terry Taylor, all of Glasgow; grandchildren, Amanda Belcher, of Rockfield, Patrick Combest, of Morgantown, Jerrea and Mackenzie Taylor, of Glasgow, and Tiffany Towe, of Scottsville; a great-grandchild, Baylee Jo Belcher, of Rockfield; three brothers, Donald (Becky) Taylor, Wilson "B" (Carolyn) Taylor and Joe Taylor, all of Eighty Eight; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by a son, Jerry Taylor; a brother, Doug Taylor; and a sister, Janice Atkins.
Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22 at A.F. Crow & Son Funeral Home with burial in Summer Shade Cemetery. Visitation will begin 1 p.m. Sunday.

So, so sorry to hear about Mr. Taylor. I spoke to Lyon yesterday- he spoke of things Jimmy had done and I could feel the closeness the two of them had. I met Mr. Taylor many times over the years and he was always a fine, gentle soul. So sorry for your loss.
