Craig Taylor

Craig L. Taylor was a passionate and caring father, brother, and friend. He left this world on February 17, 2022, after battling a lengthy journey with respiratory disorders at the age of 68.

He was born to the late Lewis Taylor Jr. and Delores (Post) Taylor of East Hartford, Connecticut. After graduating from Penney High School of East Hartford in 1971, he pursued a career path over the decades as a machinist with various companies throughout Connecticut. Becoming a father was the main job he took a lot of pride and enjoyment in over the years.

Craig loved spending time in Long Island Sound boating and off shore fishing regularly during the summer months, while also riding his Harley for jaunts around the state when staying on land. Winter months didn’t keep him inside either. He enjoyed snowmobiling, skiing, and making regular visits to Vermont, sharing these experiences with friends and family along the way.

Mr. Taylor is survived by his loving daughter, Alexis Taylor; sisters, Sharon Caputo and her husband Peter of Connecticut and Linda Listro of Maryland; along with three nieces and one nephew. Craig is also survived by special and close friends; Ann and the late Bob Burney, Bill and Linda McGaw, Jimmy Chiffer and John Burney.

Family and friends may call on the John F. Tierney Funeral Home, 219 W. Center St., Manchester, on Thursday, August 11, 2022, from 4-7 p. m. with a funeral home service immediately following. For online condolences, please visit
