Mr. Taylor was a wonderful teacher.

He always made me feel like I was a valuable member of his class, which as a seventh and eighth grader, i really needed.

I'm still not the handiest guy when it comes to "Industrial Arts"... but I'll never forget that Mr. Taylor always greeted me with a smile and treated me fairly, and taught me well.

Dick Taylor was probably one if not THE nicest man in Port Allegany. He gave loads of time to help others in the community,and was an awsome shop teacher!! He will be sadly missed by all that knew him.
God bless Judy and the boys...
