In Remembrance of David Glenn Taylor
July 5, 1965 – April 18, 2021
On Sunday, April 18, 2021, David G. Taylor passed due to health complications related to Covid-19. He was born on July 5, 1965 in Falmouth, Massachusetts at Otis Air Force Base to Sheila R. and David N. Taylor.
Known to many as “FOXX”, Dave attended the Washington, District of Columbia Public Schools where he graduated from Howard D. Woodson Sr. High School in 1983; attended Delaware State University; Moberly Area Community College (MACC), Moberly, MO; and Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Durant, OK where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in1989 for Business and Administration. Also becoming a brother of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
Foxx had a love for sports – basketball was his top passion (SA Spurs) but football was a close second (Broncos and Eagles). Growing up in the inner city of DC, he mastered the art of basketball that lead him to all American status and several college scholarships. Also, motorcycles became his love – His Harley Road Glide. As the Founding Father of the Coast II Coast M.C., Pacific NW Chapter, he and his brother’s bond were like true family blood.
Big Foxx was known as a jokester. No one could pull a stunt on him and he not have a quick comeback. He would cut you up so badly that you would just start laughing in hopes of him turning onto someone else. One of his favorite lines, “if you grin, you’re in”. During any gatherings with family and friends, if Foxx was present, you were guaranteed to have a belly ache of laughter.
Dave, Day-Day or Foxx, however you know him, if he really liked you, he treated you like family. Although his first family is on the east coast, his west coast family was just as loving to him. Spending holidays, birthdays and special events were moments that he showed his humble side. It was second nature to him to win you over, live inside your heart and stay there lovingly even after his departure.
At the time of his passing, David worked at Securitas Security Services where his quality of work ethic, reliability and the ability to bring humor to an “at times” stressful environment were greatly appreciated by his co-workers.
David was preceded in death by his parents and his daughter Taloria Smith.
He leaves to cherish his memories are his children – Darius (Debbie), Whitney, Isabelle, Tionna & Trenton; his grandkids – Trinity, Taylor and Aaron; Special children – Jimmie, Olivia and Malia; his siblings – Antonio “Tony”; Rhonda; April and Darnell and a host of loving nieces (6), nephews (4); Great Nieces (5); Great Nephews (4); and a village of beloved extended family and friends from both the east and west coasts.
Our hearts are filled with sadness by his sudden passing. Although we will never hear another joke out loud from him, we will always remember the jokes that gave us continuous laughter. Rest Well and Ride the Heavens!
