Retired Major Harry (Jim) James Taylor, Jr, (affectionately known as Pawpaw) age 70, of Poquoson, Virginia, passed away peacefully in his sleep in the late hours of October 25, 2022. Jim proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for 23 years. He was born April 26, 1952, in Pennsylvania, son of the late Harry, Sr and Eva Taylor. Along with his parents he is reunited in heaven with his wife of 53 years, Karen Taylor and brother Gary Taylor.
