From the Daily Press - 01/06/12:

              Wayne F. Taylor
 
    SUMMERFIELD, FLA. - Wayne Forrest Taylor, born April 10, 1937 in Newport News, Va., passed away Dec. 31, 2011 in Summerfield, Fla.

Wayne Taylor
 
 
His family moved to Florida in 1963, where he began his teaching career at Coral Park Senior High. The highlight of his career was his job as Athletic Director and Business Manager at Miami Palmetto Senior High School. He was very involved with the Special Olympics in Miami-Dade County. He was on the Board of Directors with the NIAAA and co-founder of the FIAAA. After retirement, he continued to serve on the National High School Athletic Committee until his passing.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in his name to the Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, located in Tampa, Fla.

The Taylor family loves and appreciates all your thoughts and warm wishes. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at dailypress.com/guestbooks.

Our condolences to Wayne's family. Jo and I have known the Taylor family all our lives. We grew up attending the same church. The Taylor brothers, Jo and I were active in the same youth groups. Jo lived around the corner from the Taylor's. May God's love and strength comfort you during this time of mourning.

Mr. Wayne Taylor was stage crew sponsor at Newport News High School in the early 1960's. I was fortunate enough to be a high school stage crew member under Mr. Taylor. He was not only a sponsor and teacher but more importantly he was our good friend. My condolences to his family and Mr. Taylor: "Gone but not forgotten"

I'm really sad about Coach Taylor's passing. He taught my NNHS Algebra class back in the 1960's and was the first person to give me that great advice that's become so popular the last decade or two, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff," and through the years it's helped me a lot. Mr. Taylor was coaching the JV football team that semester, so he had us average our own grades, saying he'd double-check them later. Unfortunately, I was so bad at math that I made a mistake and failed myself. Coach Taylor didn't get to check them because the football season got too busy, which I totally understood, until it was too late; he said I would've failed anyway, but was close enough that he'd have given me a D... For many more reasons, for many more people, he will be greatly missed.

Lead, Kindly Light

Lyrics by
John Henry Newman, 1833
(21 Feb 1801 – 11 Aug 1890)

Fourth Verse written by Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr.

Music by John B. Dykes, 1865
(10 Mar 1823 – 22 Jan 1876)



Lead, kindly Light, amid th’encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home;
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now
Lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years!

So long Thy power hath blessed me, sure it will,
Will lead me on.
O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
The night is gone,
And with the morn those angel faces smile,
Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile!

Meantime, along the narrow rugged path,
Thyself hast trod,
Lead, Savior, lead me home in childlike faith,
Home to my God.
To rest forever after earthly strife
In the calm light of everlasting life.
