Charles H. Taylor, Jr., 83

East Liverpool — Charles H. Taylor, 83, known to friends as Chuck, died on
Sunday, August 3, 2003, at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh with
family at his side.

Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Chuck attended Alfred NY University to
study Ceramic Engineering. WWII interrupted his studies, and he served in
the US Coast Guard as Aviation Radioman aboard the icebreaker Westwind.
During the war, he also found time to marry his high school sweetheart,
Dorris Hess.

Returning to school after the war, he completed his BS degree and began a
40-year career in the abrasive and refractory industries. For 28 years,
Chuck, Dorrie, and their two sons, Charles Roy and Scott Charles resided in
Moorestown, NJ, as Chuck worked in a variety of capacities including
engineering and management in sales, processing, quality control, and

In 1979 Chuck moved to Carrollton, OH, where he worked for Drexel
Refractories as Plant Manager and served subsequently as Executive Director
of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce. In 1984 Chuck and Dorrie
relocated to East Liverpool where Chuck was employed by Potters Supply
Company until his retirement in 1987. Full retirement was not to Chuck’s
taste, however, and he continued working up until his death as a Specialty
Advertising Counselor for Tasco Industries.

Chuck was an ordained deacon and elder in the Presbyterian Church and a
member of Trinity Presbyterian Church in East Liverpool. He was also a
member of the American Ceramic Society and American Legion Post 374. For
many years, Chuck was active in the Coast Guard Auxiliary and served for two
years Commander of Flotilla 13-6 in Moorestown. Throughout his life, he was
a leader in the Boy Scouts of America, most recently honored for assistance
to the Columbiana Council.

Mr. Taylor is survived by his wife, who lives in East Liverpool, and son,
Charles Roy, who resides with his wife, Mary Anne Crecelius, in Pittsburgh.
Chuck was preceded in death by his son Scott and his brother Robert E. Taylor
of Farmington Hills, MI.

Services will be held Friday, August 8, 2003 at 1:00 PM at the Calcutta Chapel of the Martin MacLean Altmeyer Funeral Home. Memorial contributions may be sent to
Trinity Presbyterian Church, 110 Maine Boulevard, East Liverpool 43920.
