Michael was born on July 26, 1955 in Fort Worth, Texas to Basil Henry and Rachel Roth Taylor. The family moved to Ponca City in 1960. Michael is a graduate of Ponca City High School and of Oklahoma State University. His career took him back to Fort Worth, Texas where he spent most of his working years. Michael’s achievements were many. In 2013, he was recognized by the Senate of the State of Texas and received a CFO of the Year Award.

When he wasn’t working, Michael especially enjoyed time on the golf course, weekends at the lake house boating with his family on Lake Texoma, and pulling his camper to many out of the way sights across the US. He was loved by so many people. His kind and generous manner allowed him to make and keep many friends. He lived to enjoy every day and showed those around him how much fun life can be, even when times were tough or he was not feeling well.

Survivors include his devoted wife, Lynn; his four children, Thomas Taylor (Celeste) of Tulsa, Lisa Taylor Watson (Zak) of Piedmont, Margaret and Elizabeth Taylor of Grenada MS; seven grandchildren; Basil, Henry, Peter, Genevieve, Annabelle Taylor, Katelyn and Ben Watson who affectionately refer to him as Big Daddy. Big Daddy loved playing games with the kids and everyone grew up understanding the family game ‘You Ain’t Got Nothing’.

Michael came from a large family of six siblings and is survived by: Bishop Anthony Taylor, Joseph Taylor (Lynnice), Paul Taylor (Suzy), Mary Gamble (David), Leo Taylor (Melissa), Rose Marie Woodard (Blake), many nieces, nephews, cousins and special friends.

Michael was predeceased by his parents.

Honorary Pall Bearers are his grandchildren: Basil, Henry, Peter, Genevieve, Annabelle, Katelyn and Ben.
