Woodward, Okla. — William "Cole" Taylor of Leedey, OK passed from this life to meet his Savior on July 6, 2012. He was 29 years, 3 months, and 21 days old. Cole was born March 15, 1983 in Canadian, TX to Roland and Susan Taylor. He was welcomed into this world by a special big sister, Natalie.
Funeral service will be held 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Leedey High School with burial following at Red Star Cemetery near Leedey. Arrangements are under the direction of Shaw Funeral Home.
Cole was united in marriage to the love of his life, Tami Laughlin of Blackwell, OK on September 16, 2006. Their family was completed by the addition of a son, Mason Cole Taylor on October 8, 2010. Mason was the joy of Cole's life. What a proud dad he was of this "Baby Boy" as he always called him. At the age of 5 days, he hauled him to Leedey, Arnett, and anywhere else he could think of by himself just to show him off.
Cole was an amazing father, husband, son, uncle, brother, grandson, and friend. He filled each of these capacities full of life. He was always willing to lend a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, or just be there to provide a good laugh.
Cole, (aka "Wilbur" to his "Dad" Rusty and his closest friends), lived life to the fullest in the short time God loaned him to us. He was always busy looking for something to do or something to eat. He loved his family, and enjoyed hunting, fishing, feeding cows, farming, racing cars, boating, and spending time with his wife and son.
Cole accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and was baptized at the First Christian Church in Arnett, OK. At the time of his passing, he was a member of the United Methodist Church in Leedey, OK. He loved his church family and was a very dedicated Christian, even being a witness while working.
