Charles William "Bill" Tayler
Age 94

On December 3, 2017, at Ingleside at Rock Creek, in Washington, DC.  Beloved father of Jeffrey and Susan; older brother of Isabel Hartwell of Roslyn Heights, New York; longtime companion of Mary Dent Crisp (deceased in 2007); former husband of Gail Anthony Tayler (deceased in 2005).  A native of Buffalo, New York, Bill was a graduate of the University of Rochester and Harvard Law School.  In World War II he served with Patton's Third Army as a combat engineer and machine-gun crew chief, and experienced the defeat and surrender of Hitler's Third Reich.  He was honorably discharged in February 1946.  Following the war, after finishing Harvard Law School, he moved to Washington, DC, where he enjoyed a long and illustrious career as an attorney with Sachs, Greenbaum and Tayler, and later with Whiteford, Taylor and Preston.
Bill was an avid squash and tennis player and fitness buff, and was an aficionado of the Glenn Miller Band.  For his steadfast love, integrity, and sound judgment, he will be greatly missed by his children, his sister, his daughter-in-law, and his friends.
