April 7, 1958 — October 25, 2021

Howard Micheal “Mike” Taylor, 63 yrs., of Statesville, was welcomed unexpectedly into the Gates of Heaven by his loving mother and brother on Monday, October 25, 2021. Born on April 7, 1958 in Scotland County, NC, he was the son of Howard Taylor and the late Addie White Taylor.

Mike was loved by many. He was known for his “big heart,” generous soul and his laughter. His wife and family were his pride and joy. He was a hard worker and known in the community by many. He had a gentle spirit that left an impact on those around him. He loved going fishing at the beach, and spending time with loved ones. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son, brother, uncle and friend; but most importantly he loved the Lord. He will surely be missed, until we see him again.
