Marty Don Taylor was born on September 29, 1952, in Springdale, Arkansas to Clifford “Wayne” Taylor and Betty Jo (Campbell) Taylor.

He attended the University of Central Oklahoma and graduated in 1975.

Marty married Martha (Hunt) Taylor in 1979.

He and Martha attended Covenant Presbyterian Church in the Village.

Marty is remembered as being dependable, pragmatic, and understanding. When a friend urged him to build a house because “it was fun,” he embraced the project and a few months later moved into it.

    I met Marty through his sons Tom and Tim. Marty had a steadfast interest in his son’s education and the people around his son. I will always be grateful for him encouraging and dedicating his time and resources to not only Tom and Tim but the rest of the UCO Sigma Nu family (memories of homecoming floats come to mind). You will be missed Marty but rest assured we will all join you in the future in our heavenly home. God bless the Taylor’s praying and thinking of you all.

    Marty lived his Santa collection and his family room was covered in them during the Christmas season. We will miss you.

    Tim, Lacey, Marty and family,
    We are thinking of you at this very sad time. May Saturday be a day of beautiful memories that you will carry with you the rest of your life. May God be with your broken hearts.

    Cheryl and Anthony
