He is also survived by his grandchildren, Tim Taylor, Susie Taylor, Patrick Taylor and Nathan Mollohan, one great-grandson, Aidan Mollohan. All other family members and close friends will miss him. He passed away on Victory Ridge, a wing of the VA Hospice unit. It is very apropos that he fought in a major war, lived life hard and ended strong on Victory Ridge.

Doc was my first friend in Tucson (35 years ago). We had many great experiences here. He even built bookcases for me and helped putting gutters on my house. I learned a lot from him. My wife and I visited him a few times in Ohio after he left Tucson and his hospitality was great,..just the same as ever. We left with wonderful vegetables from his fine garden too. A marvelous person. So long, Doc.
