Jerry was born on July 17, 1960 to Jerry Wayne Taylor, Sr. and Annie Kathleen Taylor in Shreveport, Louisiana and passed away May 3, 2021 in Shreveport.
Jerry was a resident of Shreveport and worked as a Tax Collector for the City of Shreveport, and in the Water and Wastewater Industry. He also ministered in many churches in Shreveport. He was a businessman and managed several properties in the city. He loved to read, particularly the Bible. He loved to help people, almost to a fault. It was one of his greatest pleasures to help those in need. He loved family dinners and used any excuse to get together with everyone. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy.
Jerry is preceded in death by his parents. Left to cherish his memory is his daughter, Brittany Henagan and husband, Patrick, and their children, Evangeline Henagan and Genevieve Henagan; daughter, Kristy Gray and husband, Kyle, and their children, Alexandra Gray and Zachary Gray; and son, Jerry W. Taylor, III “Trey” and wife, Dorothy, and their children, Serenity Taylor and Jerry W. Taylor, IV “JT”; brother, Scotty Taylor and wife, Patty; and numerous nieces, nephews and other family members.
The family would like to express special thanks to Dr. Scott McRight of Willis-Knighton Pierremont, St. Joseph Hospice, The Carpenter House, and his caregiver, Amanda Seager. Also, thank-you to Life Church and Brookwood Baptist Church for their continued prayers, support, love and devotion shown to Jerry during his illness.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials may be made to missionary, Randal Peterson, for the Assemblies of God Church Ministries. Jerry worked with Pastor Peterson for many years, and would love to see more people come to know Christ.
