Stephen Timothy Taylor, known by his friends as “Hammer”, of Gilbert, SC, 65, passed away October 17, 2022.
Tim was the son of the late Annie Lou Smith Taylor Perry and Donald Pitts Taylor, Sr. He is survived by his daughter, Stephanie Taylor; sister, Pat Kyzer; in-laws: Audrey Liddle, Hannah and Bill Baker, Kim and Travis Greene, Carol and Gerrit Hoogenboom, Greg and Susan Wilkerson, Joe Perez, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents; wife, Evelyn Liddle Taylor; brother, Donnie Taylor, Jr.; father-in-law, Donald G. Liddle, and brother-in-law, Glenn Wilkerson.
He grew up in the West Columbia area and attended Airport High School where he met and later married his high school sweetheart, Evelyn. He worked for Michelin for 30 years before retiring.
Tim was a good friend and faithful to his family – always willing to lend a hand or spare a dime. He found a way to enjoy so much from life, whether it was through his music, dressing up for Halloween, as the spirit of the Fourth of July at the Gilbert Peach Festival, as a very believable Santa Claus, or being the “fun uncle.” He was unique. He was loving and lovable. He was unforgettable and will be greatly missed.
The family would like to give a special thanks to Danny Kyzer and Glenn Purvis.
