Bob is survived by his wife Patricia “Patty O’Connor” Taylor; three sons, Billy (Diane), Bobby, and Barry (Bobby Jo) Taylor; seven stepchildren, Scott Phillips, Mark (Shar) Phillips, Tammy (Kevin) Poppie, Kari-Ann (Mark) Karaffa, Kathy (Dean) Yenter, Karen (Brian) Olson, Karyl (Bill) Franklin; fourteen grandchildren, Kayla, Ashley, Christopher, Courtney, Ryan, Jessica, Todd, Taylor, Jacob and Aubrianne Karaffa, Adam and Max Poppie, Nicholas and Tommy Phillips; eight great-grandchildren, Aubrey, Owen, Abby, Jayce, Mitchell, Leyah, Logan and Colton Taylor; three sisters, Gerri (Merle) Adams, Meridith Eisfeldt, Pat (Harry) Smith; two brothers Don (Mary), Walter Jr (Pat) Taylor; also survived by many nieces, nephews and friends.

At the age of 17, weighing only 130 lbs., Bob joined the Navy. He spent the next three years aboard the Navy Aircraft Carrier, USS Yorktown and was honorably discharged in 1959. Upon return home, he found that he had a passion for cars and stock car racing and even started building his own engines. That experience led to a strong interest in NASCAR racing. He also enjoyed football and supported the Green Bay Packers, never missing a game on TV. Bob also loved to watch and read western movies and books. His favorite author was Louis L’Mour.
