Samuel Harry Taylor

Samuel Harry Taylor, 76, of Van Buren, rural Huntington County, Indiana, passed away at his home on Friday, December 8, 2023. 

Sam was born on May 26, 1947, the only child to Harry D. and Catharine (Goodmiller) Taylor. Sam graduated from Warren High School and went onto graduate from Huntington College with a bachelor’s degree in education. He taught at South Adams for several years before working for the Adams County Welfare Department. He had a heartfelt passion for his job and was deeply driven to help many families, especially children, find the resources needed for a brighter future.  

After retirement and the passing of his mother, Sam moved back home to the family farm. He always said he was a farm boy through and through, and nothing beat living out in the country.  He had a love for International Harvester equipment and tractors, loved to talk politics, and was deeply rooted in his beliefs. Recently he had been attending Hillcrest Church of the Nazarene in Warren, where he was shown kindness and support during some recent health issues. 

Sam was preceded in death by his parents, Harry D. Taylor on October 7, 1992, and Catharine Taylor on January 30, 2019.  

He is survived by his extended family and several friends.
