Taylor Nathaniel Cross passed away peacefully on October 15,
2016 at his home in Belle Vernon.
Survived by his beloved mother Rena D. Cross and stepmother
Bess J. Golden. Beloved brother of Mya G. Conner and Uncle of
Luke, Kelly and Gina Cross and Robert G. Cross with wife Donna
and their three boys, Landon, Cole and Arthur. Predeceased by father
William C. Cross, sister Melanie L. Gordon and also his brother
Gregory A. Cross. He was loved by many adoring cousins and
Taylor worked for Penn Co. as a plumber for 30 years. He also
loved working with his hands. He was very mechanically and
artistically inclined. He could always be counted on to figure out the
best way to do something. He had a passion for woodcarving. He
enjoyed playing darts and became a championship dart player. When
he was younger he loved scuba diving and snow skiing. He loved
fishing, Nascar and watching football with his brother and his Dad.
They were extremely competitive, when in Florida at the Marlin fish-
ing tournament, Taylor and Greg took the first two record breaking
fish. Most of all Taylor loved to de-bone and cook chicken.
Taylor was a spiritual, sentimental and loving man. He was
very devoted to his family and friends. Anything given to him from
loved ones was a cherished possession. He traveled to England,
France, Scotland by bus, air, train, and then returned on the Queen
Elizabeth II Ship, in style!
Taylor loved animals as well. He will always be remembered
for his warmth and generosity and his sentimental and loving heart.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following that path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks undone must stay that way
I found that peace at close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much
Good times, good friends, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me
God wanted me now, He set me free!
Remembering You Always
