Bruce Barton Taylor

Bruce Barton Taylor, 92, of Cody, entered Heaven on Jan. 23, 2021.

He was born June 30, 1928, to George and Inez (Barton) Taylor. He graduated from Union-Endicott High School. Bruce served in the Army from 1950-1952. He followed in his grandfather’s and father’s footsteps, working at IBM Endicott, N.Y., for his whole career. 

On Feb. 1, 1970, he married Norma, and they spent 50 wonderful years together. After retiring, Bruce went on a hunting trip to Wyoming with some friends, and was overwhelmed with the beauty of God’s creation in Wyoming.

For several years Bruce and Norma made Cody their summer home, traveling back and forth from New York, before moving permanently to Wyoming.

Bruce was predeceased by his siblings June (Wayne) Myers, Julia (Kaye) McDill, Alice (Eugene) Cole, Richard (Marilyn) Taylor and James Taylor. 

Bruce and Norma maintained their membership in the First Baptist Church of Newark Valley, N.Y., but faithfully attended and served in the First Baptist Church of Cody.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2021, at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church in Cody with Pastor Michael Fisher officiating. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to the First Baptist Church, Cody.

Condolences to the family can be sent on Bruce’s memorial page at
