“Biggin” was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to catch bream and catfish, but his passion was Turkey hunting. In the Spring everyone knew where he would be, somewhere between Pool Hammock and Cotton Landing. He never met a stranger and was always willing to help anyone in need. He enjoyed spending time with his family, talking about history, politics and overseeing Bloody Bluff. He retired from Buckeye after more than thirty years of service and was a member of the Methodist faith.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years Maxine, daughters Lucretia Taylor of Eastpoint, Karen Taylor and son Jay Taylor (Ranza) and David Summers all of Bristol. He had nine grandchildren, Shaula Jerkins, Leah Shiver, Elbert Shiver, Tasha Gaskil, Schai Register, Swade Corley, Whitney Taylor, Jarrod Taylor and Chase Taylor, along with sixteen great grandchildren. As well as one brother, Terry Faircloth of Bloody Bluff.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Jewel Scott Faircloth and Upton Taylor, daughter Carlene Summers, one great grandchild Seth Register, brothers, Lelmon “Tatter” Taylor, Hugh “Scrub” Taylor and sister Betty Jewel Butler.

Services were held at Friendship Fellowship Baptist Church May 18, 2018, at 11 a.m. under the direction of Comforter Funeral Home.
