Donald Ray Taylor

A Memorial Graveside service for Donald Ray Taylor, 51, of West Monroe, LA, will be held at 10:00 A.M. Saturday, May 6, 2023, at Hasley cemetery pavilion, in West Monroe.


Donald ‘Duck’ was born May 7, 1971 and passed away April 5, 2023. He was a veteran of US army where he served as 1st Calvary tank operator in Kuwait and The Persian Gulf War, as well as Army National Guard. He then continued working as a heavy equipment operator in several different states.


Donald loved the outdoors, shooting guns, camping by the Ouachita River, but most importantly his family and friends. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing video games. Donald was a country boy at heart but a simple man. Unfortunately, he passed by doing a genuine and passionate act he always knew, and that was protecting his neighbor.


He was preceded in death by his father, Billy Joe Taylor and brother, Gary Wayne Taylor.


Survivors include his mother, Sandy Taylor; brothers, Barry Taylor and David Taylor; his only nephew, Bradley Taylor; nieces, Lindsey Taylor and Chelsea Taylor; as well as eight great nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind many friends in Arizona and his beloved furry companion, “Bear Dog”.


 Memorial donations may be made to the Ouachita parish Animal Shelter.
