Christopher Alan Taylor, age 43, of Hendersonville passed away on January 31, 2017. Chris was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, friend, teacher, and coach. Chris was a devout follower of Jesus Christ. The evidence of his devotion was apparent to all who knew him and is described in scripture as the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Chris possessed love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Chris also had a gift for hilarity. He had an infectious smile and a sense of humor that was dry and sharp but never unkind. Until the very end, Chris embodied the peace that surpasses all understanding. His only concern was for his wife and three daughters.

He was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth Taylor, Jr., grandparents Kenneth Taylor, Herman and Harriet Parrish. He is survived by his wife, Trisha, his mother, Karen, his grandmother, Kathy, and his sister Carole Baker (Dale); daughters, Brette, Darby, and Tatum; niece, Sophia Baker; nephew, Isaac Baker; aunts, Judy Parrish, Linda Taylor Thorland (Rod); uncle, Milton E. Parrish (Carolyn); Cousins, Susan Ma (Chao), Kara Kindall (Johnny), Leslie Becker (Jim), Beverly Wallbrech (Ian), Jamie Smidt (Brian), Brian Parrish (Laurie), John Parrish (Heather), Jonathan Thorland (Kati), Joel Thorland and a host of extended family. He will be deeply missed by his Hendersonville High School family.

The family would like to thank the Hendersonville community, Hendersonville High School, Knox Doss at Drake’s Creek Middle School, Ellis Middle School, Nannie Berry Elementary, First Baptist Church for their outpouring of love and support during these difficult days.

Services will be held Saturday, February 4th, at 1:00 pm at First Baptist Church in Hendersonville. Visitation is Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. and again Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Taylor Education Fund c/o Trisha L. Taylor at any Regions Bank.

    My love goes out to Chris’s family and close friends. I pray for comfort and peace and for God’s healing hand over you all. One of my other teachers once told me a long time ago, “It’s never good bye, but Ill just see you later.” So even when we miss his physical being here on Earth we can rejoice that we will see our dear beloved Coach/Teacher, family, friend again with our Father. Coach Taylor thanks for the memories and thank you to Coach Taylor’s family for allowing us the privilege of getting to know a great man and a wonderful friend.

    God Bless

    He was the best teacher anyone could ask for hands down. He will be missed greatly. I hope that his family finds peace and comfort knowing he is with the angels. I knew him as my teacher and friend. He never made you feel like you were not important. I think I will miss his jokes the most. Fly high Coach Taylor we love you and will see you again.
