Glenn C. Taylor, 84, of Limerick passed away peacefully after a brief illness on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough.
He was born on May 27, 1937 to the late Donald and Marion (Mitchell) Taylor in Limington where he grew up and attended local schools, graduating from Limington Academy in 1955.
After high school Glenn worked as a herdsman on a farm at an apple orchard and spent some time working with his cousin in Orange, NJ at their delicatessen. When he returned he went into business with his father and bought and sold land, and also owned a hotel in Old Orchard Beach for a time. He worked in local shoe shops where he and his work partner and friend of 52 years, Butch Sanborn made 1200 sneakers per night.
For 10 years Glenn owned the Jeremiah House (also known as the Brick House) on Main St. in Limerick. He then bought his home on Locust Hill Rd where he had resided since 1969.
As a young man Glenn also served in the Army National Guard.
After 18 years of making shoes, Glenn decided to quit and spend the rest of his life fishing. He fished all over Maine and New Hampshire in lakes and the ocean. He was proud of his "unsinkable" Boston Whaler boat. Glenn was always looking for trout.
Glenn was predeceased by a brother Robert Taylor.
Survivors include his sister June Langlois of Limington, nephews Chris Langlois and his fiancé Christine Marien of Limington, David Langlois and his girlfriend April Solak of Limington and great nephew and niece Wyatt and Cheyenne Langlois, and several longtime friends.
A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, November 23, at 2:30 P.M. at the Limington Village Cemetery.
Arrangements are under the direction of Black Funeral Homes and Cremation Service, Sanford-Springvale.
