He graduated from Springdale High School in 1965, and worked as a machinist for the RTW Company, in Rogers, Arkansas before retiring with 40+ years of service.

He loved being outdoors and was an avid fisherman, hunter and trapper.  Later in life he took up golf and played weekly for many years.  He also enjoyed making the rounds at the local casino, having a good steak and playing the horses and the slots.  He was a do-it-yourself kind of guy and was always making repairs and improvements to his home, vehicles and sporting equipment.  He was very personable and also had a keen sense of humor. 

Jim was preceded in death by his father Sam M. Taylor, mother, Ruby M. Spears Taylor; and his wife, Judy Carol Sargent Taylor.

He is survived by his son, James M. Taylor of Rogers; step-daughters, Mary Ann Adams and husband Chris of Springdale, Arkansas; Bobye Holt and her husband, Jim Holt, of Tontitown, Arkansas; 13 grandchildren; one sister, Brenda Powers and her husband Jerry of Bella Vista; one brother Jerry Taylor and wife Twila of Springdale; niece, Cassie Taylor of Springdale, and a large group of extended family and lifelong friends.

Jim and I traveled through the school system for all the years, Washington, then Jones then Jr and Sr high. When I saw Al's posting it brought back many memories. Peace and prayers to the family.

My condolences to the family! I spent many fun hours fishing, playing golf and going to the casinos with Jim the last 45 years! May he Rest In Peace

To Jim's family my condolences. I did know much about Jim and his life and family since high school because I never lived in NW Arkansas area. However, he was a great friend of mine at Washington Elementary school. He is at peace now in heaven, remember the good times and know you will be with him again in heaven.
