Joseph (Jack) Alma Taylor Jr. of Marana Arizona was called to Heaven on Friday February 2, 2018. He was born to parents Joseph Alma Sr. and Avonelle Pauline Taylor on June 4, 1939 in Tucson Arizona. He is survived by his 5 children, Stephen, Michael, Gwen, Greg and Jack, 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings, Beverly, Margaret, Christopher and Roger. He is preceded in death by his dear wife Eileen Lydia Taylor, his siblings Steven, Catherine and Ralph. Retiring from a lifelong career with Pacific Telephone & Telegraph in California, Joseph and Eileen moved back to his home state of Arizona. He was a devoted father and enjoyed spending time with his children and family. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Many people were enriched by his knowledge and teachings. We are heartbroken. Joseph will be remembered always and missed dearly. Services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at 13555 N Lon Adams Rd Marana AZ on Wednesday February 7, 2018 with viewing at 9:30 am; services at 10:30 am, followed by graveside service at Marana Mortuary Cemetery 12146 W Barnett Rd Marana AZ. Joseph and Eileen are together again. Rest in Peace Dad.

Loved those 24 mile bike rides to the ocean my dad would take my brother and myself on many Saturdays. My brother and I were just on Schwinn Sting Rays, while my dad rode his ten speed. I am glad it happened that way because it built strong legs for us. Really, so much fun. I'll never forget this and thousands of other things he did with us. What a dad.
