Taylor, JohnFS

D.O.D 06/14/2013 - John was born Oct. 26, 1927, in Enid, and was the only child of William and Nellie Ratcliff Taylor and passed away Friday, June 14, 2013, at his home.

After graduating from Enid High School in 1944, at the age of 16, he briefly attended Phillips University.

Shortly thereafter, John enlisted in the Air Force, because of his lifelong love of flying. He served as a staff sergeant in Guam.

Prior to his deployment, he met and started courting his future wife, Sue Hackleman, of Stillwater, after meeting at the swimming pool in Green Mountain Falls, Colo. They married six years later on June 5, 1950, in Stillwater. After being discharged, John attended Oklahoma A&M until he returned to Enid to help run the Enid Publishing Co., where he served as president and owner until 1989. He also was owner of KCRC-KNID radio stations and Enid Two-Way.
