Douglas Charles Taylor, 67, of Ennis, TX, passed away unexpectedly on December 28th, 2020 due to complications following surgery. Doug was born in Tulsa, OK and was raised in Minneapolis, MN by his parents Charles and Betty Taylor. He spent his summers playing baseball and visiting a family farm in Parkersburg, WV. His father taught him how to play the drums and he played in the Washburn High School Band.

After high school, Doug moved to Texas where his sons, Jason and Cameron, were born. He then began his career in insurance sales with Mutual of Omaha, Liberty Mutual, and then he purchased an Allstate agency in 2001. He won many awards, trips, and was recognized throughout his sales career.

Doug passed on his love of baseball to his sons and taught them the fundamentals of the game. He enjoyed spending time with his boys, attending sporting events, playing catch, looking at the stars, and traveling.

Doug settled in the DFW area in the early 1980s. He met his wife, Laura, in 1994 at the Parents Without Partners Organization. They were then married in 1995. They fulfilled their dream of living in a log cabin with enough land for their animals in Ennis, TX where they currently live.

He loved baseball, astronomy, family heritage, Texas history, Bible history, the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota Twins, Oreo cookies, and ice cream.

Doug’s walk with God grew stronger throughout his life. We know he is with his savior, Jesus Christ. We love him and will miss him, until we meet again.

Left to cherish his memories are his wife of 25 years, Laura Taylor; sons, Jason Taylor (Leslie), and Cameron Taylor; step-daughter, Miranda Marshall; his “bonus children”, Sunni Layman and Colton Marshall; his “bonus granddaughter”, Sasha Cortez; brother, Brad Taylor; numerous family members and many friends.

A Memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 9th at the Boze-Mitchell McKibbin Funeral Home located at 511 West Main Street, Waxahachie, TX 75165.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Arlington Historical Society at

Taylor Family,
I am deeply saddened by the loss of Doug. He was the most amazing boss and friend. He always had a way of making me laugh (like that’s very hard to do)! I will forever remember all our talks about history and hauntings. Yup that’s right hauntings! Oh and how could I forget “I said I like your hair!” Such fun times in the office together. May his memory forever live on and may we always cherish his life lessons. Until we meet again...

We will always have our cherished memories. Still can’t believe he is really gone. Praying for peace and comfort for Laura and the family.
Love you,
Rick and Marilynn Squyres

Words cannot describe my grief. I remember the softball games, the camping trips and my relentless teasing. All because I loved you. Love and comfort to Laura. Ellen Compton
