Our condolences to the family of Jack Taylor. We will miss seeing you at Winona State basketball games and the football luncheons. I worked with Jack back in the days of Community Memorial Hospital and the Stroke Unit (early 70's). Caring thoughts and prayers. Jo & Jerry Stejskal

I remember being home from college one weekend and my parents here hosting "Fat Club" that night. I think Mr. Spencer was holding court with a sing-along and I could hear all the group singing and laughing.What a joy to experience as a youth. My Parents (Mia and John) just loved the friendships and support from this group. I miss my dad and miss those times, but will always have the memories to comfort us. Cheers to Mr. Taylor who was a great friend to my parents. Kricky Martin.

I live in MARSHALLTOWN Iowa and Jack & Gerri were our neighbors and dear friends of our family. I remember many trips to Winona after they left MARSHALLTOWN and the last trip my sister and I drove our Mother up to see them and shortly after she passed away. I want the family to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and you will always have a special place in my heartā¤

So sorry to hear of the loss of Jack. He was such a wonderful man, always happy and smiling. I was happy to serve him his White Zinfandel and Fish on Friday's at Westfield for years. I am sure he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Family of Jack,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I worked with Jack "back in the day" at Community Memorial Hospital, Jack was a man that always had a smile on his face and a friendly "good morning", a true people person. I will remember him for that.
God Bless,
Tammy Seebold
