Murrell Bradley Taylor

Murrell Bradley Taylor, 77, (after a lengthy illness) passed away peacefully at home

He was born October 21, 1943, in Hamilton, MS to Thomas Edison Taylor and Easter

In eighth grade, he began working at Elkin Theater and continued working there
until he joined the Air Force straight from Aberdeen High School. He received his
Honorable Discharge in March of 1964 and returned to Aberdeen.

In August of 1964, he married the love of his life, Glenda Sue Coates.

Murrell spent most of his life in Monroe and Lee County, where he raised his family
and worked in the lumber industry, retiring from Morris Sales, Co and eventually
moved to the Gulf Coast with his daughter.

His pastimes were many but he enjoyed the outdoors, spending time with family
and casino trips.

Blessed with a beautiful loving family he is survived by three children – Brad
(Angee), Mike (Nikki) and Tammy Mercer (Chris). Ten Grandchildren – Lacey,
Brandi, Stormi, Daniele, Austin, Candi, Hanna, Bradley, Kyler, and Ella. Twelve Great-
Grandchildren – Allie, Ben, Dillan, Aaron, Jada, Margot, McKenzie, Matthew, Aubrey,
