Kenneth Maurice Taylor was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona to Wes Brown and Thelma Taylor. He was born 6th of 8 children; his parents, sister Penny, brothers Leo and Elroy all preceded him in death. He graduated from Phoenix Union High School and attended College in Arizona. Kenne was a loving husband father, grandfather and friend to many. He loved his family and was a gentleman who still opened doors for women, feed the homeless, and helped anyone in need.
Kenne was always for the underdog. He was an entrepreneur and never passed up a business opportunity. He was a very sharp dresser, loved hats/shoes and starched pants like they were dry cleaned. He ironed his wife's clothes and made her lunch for work daily. He professed a hope in Christ and virtually attended Pleasant Grove Church in St. Louis, Mo. under the leadership of Bishop Courtney A. Jones.
He leaves to cherish his memories; his wife Tanya Taylor, 8 Children; Tracy Taylor (Arizona), Adrienne Lee (James) ( Indiana), Stacy Langschwager (Marc) (Arizona), Pamela Lumpkin (Massachusetts), Christian Mathison (New York), Kenneth Taylor II (Arizona) Keisha Taylor (Arizona), Kiere Taylor (Arizona); four stepchildren: Milton Williams, Adah Williams, Michael Dossie and Marcus Dossie; 2 siblings Margaret Brown and Alfred Brown (Denice) (Arizona); 45 grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Kenne will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
