Anthony (Tony) Hubert Taylor went to be with the Lord Saturday July 13, 2019, at Ascension Via Christi Hospital. Tony was born Jan. 23, 2002, to Russell Taylor and Sue Cress. He was the youngest of three children.

Tony attended Pittsburg schools and was about to start his senior year this fall. He enjoyed working for Chatters and was looking forward to church camp with his friends from South Broadway Baptist Church. Tony was an honor roll student with a heart for kids. He worked hard and aspired to be a cardiologist so he could help other kids like him. He enjoyed playing with his nieces and nephews and would go out of his way to make time for them.

He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Hubert Adam Taylor Jr., of Pleasanton; and his maternal grandmother, Dorothy Marie Asmus, of Marion.

His memory lives on in his father, Russell Taylor; mother Sue Cress; stepfather Brandon Cress; grandmothers Sharon Akins, Jackie Taylor and Janet Cress; sisters Brittany Smith, Lauren Henson and Montana Cress; and brother Hunter Cress, as well as several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. Tony was much loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Funeral services will be held at South Broadway Baptist Church, 1322 S. Broadway, Pittsburg, Kan., at 11a.m. Thursday, July 18. Counselors from PHS will be available at the church for anyone wishing to participate in an open mic night at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 17. 

We will be starting a Tony Taylor Memorial Scholarship Fund to be maintained by the church. Please send any donations to South Broadway Baptist Church and reference Tony Taylor Scholarship Fund in the memo. We appreciate all the love, hugs, prayers and support. Tony would be humbled and grateful to see all the lives he has impacted.
