My deepest sympathy is with the Taylor family during this very tough time. May god wrap his comforting arms around you all. I had the chance to meet Mr. Taylor during my time with Verizon Wireless and what an inspirational man he was. He will leave a very long legacy and very big shoes to fill at Verizon Wireless.

Misty, Madison and Charlie, Your Husband and Father is one of the most remarkable people I have ever worked with here at Verizon. I met Dean 10 years ago during the Cellular One conversion. He inspired us all by his example of how to be a great leader, successful businessman and all around caring and compassionate person. You all are in my thoughts and prayers at this time.

My deepest sympathies to you Misty and your family.Dean was my manager at Verizon back in the Bell Atlantic Mobile days in the Spartanburg retail store. I always admired and respected him so much. Later in my career at Brookfield I was always greeted by Dean with that great big smile:) and an encouraging word! Dean always made my day brighter and I was blessed to have the privilege of knowing him.
