Elder Samuel H. Taylor
January 17, 1966 - March 20, 2016  

“I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me on that day; and not to me only, but also unto all those that love his appearing.”                                                II Timothy 4:7-8

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we, the Taylor, Moore, Maximore, Miller, Luke, Gibson, Reeves, and the Bethel World Outreach Ministries families announce the peaceful home going of Sam Taylor, our beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Son, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, and Elder in his 50th year. Sam quietly passed away as his family worshiped around his bed on Sunday evening, March 20th, at the Temple University/Jeanes Hospital in Philadelphia.

Sam is survived by his wife of 24 years, Kormasa Reeves Taylor; Children:  Myrtel, Ashley, Jared, Yvonne, Samielle, Joshua, and Christian; Grandbaby Hanelle; Sisters: Annette Taylor-Simpson, Minister Flossy Taylor, Lisa Dutton, Willette Taylor, Romelle Nyekan Konuwa, Laura Kennedy, Alex Jane Taylor; Brothers: Pastor Boakai Paasewe, Andrew Simpson, Michael Dutton, Varmu Reeves, Zim Reeves, Coxton Kennedy, and Tony Taylor. Sam also leaves to mourn his loss many Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, relatives, and dear friends in the United States, Europe, Africa, and Worldwide.

Sam will be deeply missed. He leaves a legacy of unshakable and unrelenting faith, strength, love and commitment to family, and a deep passion for helping his fellow man.
