Homegoing of Former Alliance Missionary

Rev. Donald McCartney Taylor, former C&MA missionary (1961-1974), entered the Lord’s presence on Wednesday, August 26, 2009, in Kissimmee, Florida. He was 72.

Don and his wife, Jan, had been international workers in Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. They were on two years’ leave of absence from 1974 to 1976 while living in Johnson City, New York, where Don served the Johnson City Alliance Church as an elder. In the late ’70s, the Taylors were involved with developing the Cambodian church plant in Johnson City and in settling Southeast Asian refugees in the area. Jan was a local school teacher. Don served the Laotian District in the United States from 1985 to 1990.

Don was the son of Rev. and Mrs. Harry Taylor, longtime international workers to Cambodia and the Arab Lands. Don is survived by his father, Harry, who resides in The Alliance Community for Retirement Living in Deland, Florida; and his sisters, Mrs. Janice Kropp, international worker (Japan); and Mrs. Judy Reitz, the widow of a former district pastor. Don is also survived by two sons, Kevin and Keith, and a daughter, Karen.

Prayers for his widow, Janet, and their family would be much appreciated (1546 Venice Ct., Kissimmee, Florida, 34746).
