Condolences for Danny L. Taylor

Lois Green posted on 3/4/21

My sincere condolences to the Taylor family. I am sorry that am so behind on the newspaper that I missed the calling for Danny. Was so saddened to see this, but I feel assured that he is in paradise with the Lord. I last spoke with Danny just prior to the lockdown and he was such a delight to talk to - always an upbeat attitude and enjoying his apartment at Westminster. I first met Danny when I worked at Bracken Library, he was such a hard worker and I enjoyed taking our break time together and chatting. After I left, it seemed that we ran into each other at least once a year and would catch up. I will miss that. The world has lost a good man. Sending prayers and blessings your way. Sincerely, Lois

Danny and I became friends through work at Bracken Library and recreation at Camp Isanogel about 50 years ago. He was an amazing person and inspiration to all. He will be sadly missed. My sincere condolences to the family.

Brigitta (Gitta Beebe) and I would have loved to be at our classmate Danny’s calling, but due to Covid and the terrible weather, we are not able to attend. Danny had a remarkable life and accomplished so much. He was always nice and friendly to us and will be sorely missed at our class reunions. Once a Bearcat, always a Bearcat!

First met Danny in the 60’s thru United Cerebral Palsy & in later years always enjoyed meeting up with him at Sunshine Cafe when he lived on Oakwood. His endearing smile & personality continued to shine after his move to Westminster. Now, he’ll be watching down on all of us

Danny will long be remembered by volunteers and participants from past RHI Sports Adaptive Water Ski Clinics at Morse Reservoir. More than once we celebrated his June 9th birthday during the clinic. A few years ago Danny wrote a beautiful letter to RHI Sports explaining the joy he experienced gliding across the water on a sit-ski and how thankful he was for the opportunity. Danny Taylor was an inspiration to all..

Danny was such a fun co-worker in Bracken. During Christmas we had a contest as to how many songs we remembered and sang them together. We had a way to tease each other and get us both laughing. He was such a wonderful person.

I met Danny many years ago at a singles group the Y was trying to organize. I crossed paths with him only rarely in the years to follow but he always remembered me and greeted me warmly. When my Mom was at Westminster Village he was in the apartment next to hers until she was moved to another location. He always had a warm smile and a friendly greeting. His accomplishments were remarkable! RIP, Danny. Your light shined on many many people while you were with us.

Rarely can you have a challenged student who would be a perfect model for others. I was very fortunate to have that excellent student in class, Danny. Always positive, always friendly, always helpful. Danny was a wonderful friend and always full of joy. He made the best of life and I am honored to consider him a great colleague. JimLowry

What a wonderful man. I am a better person for having known him. I got to know him at the Muncie Civic Theatre. Truly a kind soul. Heaven gained an angel.

I attended Muncie Central with Danny, graduating in the same class. I always loved being around Danny. He was smart, funny, caring, and one of the nicest people I have ever known. Seeing him at class reunions was always such a treat. We relived old stories and laughed at some of the silly moments. RIP my friend.

I am so very lucky to have worked with Danny at Bracken Library. He was like a ray of light, always smiling and happy. He and Jeff Koenker always made a point of attending the community history programs I did, and I was so honored by his attendance. I will miss his warm laugh and encouraging words. That kind of genuine friendship is rare, and I will never forget him. I'll be praying for your family.

I write to offer sincere condolences to Danny's family and dear friends. I was privileged to serve with Danny at the University Libraries for many years, and he was a valued colleague, who brought energy, passion, and a wonderful sense of humor to his work. Danny will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by those of us who benefited from his decades of service at the Ball State University Libraries.
