Obituary for Wynburn Taylor Jr.

Wynburn  Taylor Jr.
Wynburn Lee Taylor, Jr., 87, known as Lee by his friends, left us surrounded by his family in their home in the early morning of June 2, 2018.

Son of the late Gladys Carnahan Nanney of St. Louis and the late Wynburn Lee Taylor, Sr. of Youngstown, OH, Lee is survived by his wife of 46 years, Sallie (Shearer) Taylor of Brentwood, MO; his sons, Jeff L. Taylor (Lisa) of Maryland Heights, MO, Mark R. Taylor (Jay Strozdas) of Los Angeles, CA, and Stephen M. Bartok of Brentwood, MO. Survivors also include sisters-in-law Dr. Margueite Shearer of Dexter, MI, Jane Sharpe (Capt. Joseph Sharpe, USN [Ret]) of Hanahan, SC, and brother-in-law, Col. Robert Shearer, (USMCR, [Ret]) of Dallas,TX.

His four years of service (1947-1951) in the U.S. Navy during the Korean Conflict introduced Lee to other cultures and countries which fueled his interest as an Amateur "Ham" Radio Operator - he was always excited to make contact with someone in a new part of the world. Throughout his life, he dove deeply into history of the Civil War, the early days of the Old West, and Native American culture.

In recent years, Lee enjoyed drawing, particularly Native American images. As father of three sons, Lee’s love of God and family drew him into leadership roles in YMCA Indian Guides programs and in the Boy Scouts of America - New Horizons District, troop 339.

Lee received his certificate in Building Design from Washington University’s School of Architecture. During his more than 50 years as an architect, he worked for several firms, including Peckham-Guyton, Inc., Eugene Mackey, and Robert L. Boland, Inc. For the last twelve years of his career Lee established his own company, SPEC INC LTD. He distinguished himself in the unique field of writing technical manuals for building construction (spec-writing) for several architectural firms in the St. Louis area.

The Family extends special thanks to those involved in Lee’s care at home over the recent months, especially staffs of Synergy Home Care, MediNurse, Jena, and Sandra who brought special comfort to him.

Visitation at 9:30am precedes memorial gathering at 10:30am, Wednesday June 6, Bopp Chapel, Kirkwood, MO. Interment to immediately follow at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery at 12:30pm.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a charitable gift to the St. Labre Indian School, PO Box 216, Ashland, MT 59003-9989 in honor of Lee’s memory.
