Obituary of Danny Wayne Taylor

Please share a memory of Danny to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Danny Wayne Taylor, 80, of Roanoke passed away Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at his home.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Chester "Chet" Taylor and Lasca Taylor Tolbert.

Danny was a simply a very special person, not so much for the good deeds that he did (which were many), but because he was kind.  If you were lucky enough to meet him, you immediately liked him.  If you needed someone to talk to, he knew when to just listen.  He had an easy going nature that made people gravitate to him. His sense of humor was witty, silly, and sometimes corney, but always funny.  Among those he loved, he was more than a son, brother, husband and father- he was a friend.  The world will be a little less special without him in it.

Surviving are his wife, Ginger Harris Taylor; children, Troy Wayne Taylor (Kim), Amy Taylor Webb (Randy); and Mitzie Taylor Wilmoth; grandchildren, Katie Taylor Vandeweghe (Michael), Meredith Taylor Webb, Ellen Elizabeth Webb; brother, Ronny Lee Taylor (Judy).

The family would like to thank everyone at Legacy Hospice and especially our new friends at Nexus Homecare for their devoted care of Danny and Ginger over the past year.

Funeral services will be conducted 1:00 pm Monday, January 24, 2022 at Simpson Funeral Home 5160 Peters Creek Road. Interment will be private. The family will receive friends from 5 to 8 pm Sunday, January 23, 2022 at Simpson Funeral Home. (540)366-0707
