Roger Bennett Taylor

March 7, 1943 - January 7, 2022

Roger Bennett Taylor, 78, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 48 years, passed away peacefully Friday, January 7, 2022, in Cape Coral. He was born March 7, 1943, in Leesville, Louisiana to Alger “Ben” Taylor and Virginia Taylor Wolters, now deceased.

Roger grew up in Toledo, Ohio, where he married his high school sweetheart, Connie Laney, to whom he’s been married to for 58 years.  After moving to Cape Coral, Florida in 1973, Roger had two careers, one in construction, then owning his own lawn business.  During this time, Roger and Connie raised a beautiful family who loved being active in the Florida sunshine. 

Roger’s favorite job, though, was being the biggest cheerleader to his children and grandchildren as they were involved in many sports such as softball, football, track, and soccer.  Even as his health declined, Roger continued to make attending these events a priority.  His support was unwavering and will always be remembered.

Those who knew Roger would agree that he was strong, independent and was a man of habit.  Family was always his number one priority and always made each of us feel as if we were his favorite. 

He is survived by his loving wife, Connie Taylor of Cape Coral; children, Christina Scott (James) of Springville, AL, Jeffery Taylor (Susan) of Cape Coral, and Steven Taylor (Rita) of Cape Coral; siblings, Sandy Pickett (Brock) of Dundee, MI, and Tom Taylor (Rhoda) of Monclova, OH; grandchildren, Laney, Kristin, Sydney, Kaysie, and Dewey.

Private family services will be held.

Memorial Contributions in memory of Roger Bennett Taylor are suggested to be made to the American Cancer Society, 4575 Via Royale, # 110, Fort Myers, FL 33919.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
