I loved Mr. Taylor’s Human Relations class so much. He was one of the rare teachers who had an impact on me back then, when I wasn’t a very attentive student. I still think about some of the interesting anecdotes he shared along with his unique teaching style. I couldn’t wait for his class following lunch! He was a real gem who greatly impacted his students’ success.

He was a wonderful teacher
Such a great teacher! I will always remember Mr. Taylor’s Human Relations class. RIP. May his family feel peace and his legacy live in their lives forever.
Mr. Taylor was one of everyone’s favorite teachers. His Human Relations class helped us explore ourselves and grow into the adults we would eventually be. A great man whose legacy lives on in all of his students over the years.
My favorite high school teacher. I will never forget him. He raised my self esteem at a time when I was lost. He was one of the kindest, most caring teachers I’ve ever known, and I was a teacher too.
Good memories of Mr. Taylor teaching economics during my time at Rocky River High School when I attended from 1967-1971.
Mr. Taylor was a wonderful teacher and supported each student. i was lucky to be in his class. Karen Murton Jones
Mr, Taylor was my hero in tenth grade! He knew my sister and brother ahead of me; so I felt that he probably understood me even better that way. His comments in my notebook were like gold to me. Secret love notes at a time that I was struggling so much! I’m a psychiatrist now; and realize how much his reading and commenting on my notebook was a deep connection that I can still feel across the years. Much gratitude for your father and grandfather ♥️
