Obituary for Melvin "Bucky" Taylor

Melvin “Bucky” Taylor, 82, of Chambersburg, PA, passed away on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at Laurel Lakes Rehabilitation and Wellness Center. Born June 15, 1938 in Newark, New Jersey, he was the son of the late Robert Wade and Inez Hamilton, and widower of the late Alice (Barnhart) Taylor, who preceded him in death on November 11, 2014.

A United States Navy Veteran, he honorably served from 1954 to 1957 on the USS Missouri Air Craft Carrier. He worked at various places during his life, with the most recent being Staples, from where he retired in 2010. Always eagerly wanting to acquire knowledge, he kept up with local and world news and even learned how to speak 5 different languages. He was a very social person, and made friends with everyone. Bucky was an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan and had a large collection of their ball caps. He enjoyed music, boxing and spending time with his friends and family.

Surviving are his sons, Carl Anthony Taylor (wife Brandy), Thomas “Tony” Taylor (wife Janell), both of Chambersburg, and Elvester Scott Taylor, of FL; fourteen grandchildren; six great grandchildren; and one sister, Elaine Marshall. In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by his son, Kevin Lamar Taylor.

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 2:00 PM in the Chapel of the Thomas L. Geisel Funeral Home & Cremation Center, Chambersburg, PA where Pastor Mike Sanders will officiate. The family will receive friends in the funeral home one hour prior to the service.
