Kenneth "KT" Taylor

Earnest Kenneth Taylor, also known as KT, entered this world on October 2, 1943, in the charming town of Mesa, AZ and grew up in Paris, TX, to Carol and Nora Taylor. He lived a life full of adventure and purpose, touching the lives of many along the way.

KT's thirst for knowledge led him to Tupelo Bible College, where he nurtured his spiritual beliefs and evolved into a talented evangelist. His friends and family will always remember him for his captivating storytelling, infectious laughter, and quick wit that could light up any room.

During his time in the Army from 1966 to 1968, stationed in Germany, Earnest discovered his passion for serving his country and exploring new territories. In the 1970s, he ventured into the world of car sales, working at a GM Dealership.

Throughout his life, KT's love for music shone brightly as he serenaded many on the piano and guitar, leaving a lasting impression on every listener. His entrepreneurial spirit was evident in all his endeavors, reflecting his determination and drive to succeed.

KT's legacy is carried on by his son, Roy Taylor Williams, his daughter Tess Mosley, her husband Lance, his grandchildren, Travis Jennings, Corey Tyler, Logan Iffland, and his spouse Carson, Westleigh Iffland, and Connor Iffland. Kenneth's great-grandchildren, Paisley, Pierson, Gabriel, Brantley, Ella Joy, Remi, and Dev, will remember him fondly for his warmth and love.  He will also be dearly missed by his longtime friend, Debbie Blalock.

As we prepare to bid farewell to KT, we invite you to join us in celebrating his remarkable life at the upcoming Memorial Service to be held at Croley Funeral Home in Gladewater, Texas on April 27, 2024, at 1:00 pm. 

KT's presence will be dearly missed, but his spirit will live on in the hearts of all those who had the privilege of knowing him. Let us come together to pay tribute to a man who lived life to the fullest, inspired others, and left an indelible mark on everyone he met. Rest in peace, Earnest Kenneth Taylor.
