A memorial service will beheld from 1 PM to 3 PM Saturday November 13, 2021, at Deerfoot Memorial Funeral Home in Trussville, Alabama with military honors ceremony beginning at 2 PM.


He was preceded in death by his parents: Brady Andrew Taylor Sr., and Francis Roberta Taylor.

Andy was born in Birmingham, Alabama November 2, 1946. Shortly after graduating High School as a proud Hewitt Trussville Husky, Andy enlisted with the United States Marine Corps. Andy bravely and honorably served his country in the Vietnam war from 1966 to 1969. He loved his country and always spoke with dignity and great pride regarding the opportunity he had to serve. Andy was a decorated war veteran from his time in Vietnam. One of his many accolades being the Presidential Unit Citation Ribbon awarded “for extraordinary heroism and outstanding performance of duty.”


The most giving spirit, Andy never met a stranger and was never slow to help another in need. His actions exemplified selflessness from his time as a marine and throughout his life. He was a humble and simple man whose love for the outdoors motivated his most every move; including his final wish, “Sprinkle my ashes on Mt. Cheaha.” Through humor and kindness, he impacted the lives of so many and will be greatly missed. Until we are reunited again, we will find peace knowing that he is resting high on that mountain and joy in knowing he is sharing those stories he carried along so proudly.
