Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Seth Lamar Taylor, age 18

Seth Lamar Taylor, 18, of Sherwood was taken from this life to soon on July 30, 2019.  He was born on May 29, 2001, in Aurora, Colorado to Reginald Lamar Taylor and Stacye Lynne Cauldwell-Skaggs.

Seth was an amazing, loyal, loving son, grandson, brother, and friend.  He loved to play football, work out, listen to music and being with his family.  Seth was a member of the 2019 National Honors Society – Mu Alpha Theta; graduated with honors from Sylvan Hills High School in Sherwood; a member of First Assembly of God, North Little Rock; he played football for Sylvan Hills High School and was a proud “Bear”, and he always said that he was “#21 on the field but #1 in your hearts”. His smile, hugs and laughter will always be missed and cherished by everyone that knew him.

He leaves behind his mother and step-father Stacye and Tony Skaggs; his father Reginald Taylor; his grandparents Joe Yekel (Sheila); great-grandparents Jim Gist (Marcella); siblings Kara Taylor, Alixx Burnett, La Toya Taylor;  three step-brothers and one step-sister; his significant other Laura Hernandez; a very special unborn nephew SJ (that Seth was extremely excited to meet) and many nephew, nieces, friends and family.

Visitation will be on Monday, August 5, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. at A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas.  Funeral services will begin at Tuesday, August 6 at 10:00 A.M in the chapel at A Natural State Funeral Service.   

Family ask that donations be made directly to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas,  501-982-3400, to help with the service.

    I didn’t know you, personally. But your grandmother, Sheila, spoke very highly and lovingly of you. Your light was extinguished too soon. RIP and Fly High with the Angels.

    I am stunned and heartbroken. When he was 12 years old this young man knocked in my door asking if he could mow my yard. He did so for several summers, until his family moved away. Always polite and professional. He talked about football and his plans for college. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Such a loss. He was a fine young man. Condolences

    My prayers go out to you and your family! Stay strong!!! Seems like yesterday Seth, Kara and I were playing outside in the yard!! Love and miss you guys!

    We did not know Seth , but we regret your loss and sorrow. My wife and I have lost sons a little older than him and we want you to know that you can endure this pain as you go through the “valley of the shadow of death.” We found great comfort in our Christian faith even though we struggled with the pain and loss. We found that each person grieves in a unique way and time, so we encourage you to recognize that in your family. As time passes you will be able to recall times of happiness with your Seth that will help you deal with the loss. I hope that friends will share with you their memories of the good times with him.

    Seth I was with you when you came into this world and was the first to get to hold you close to my heart. You have always and will forever be there. You are a very special young man that touched so many hearts and made many people happy. You were the one that went out of your way to check on me, give me the hug I always needed and told me every chance you had to say I love you. I will forever miss that. Sing with the angels my sweet grandson!

    Seth praying for you and your family young man

    I am an aunt of Seth’s dad, Reggie, from St. Louis, MO. Received word of his transition, was sadden and sorrowful. What we must innerstand and overstand is our life is scripted prior to our first breath on this planet. As we experience life, we learn lessons. I’d talked with Seth when he was much younger. We are divine spiritual beings having a divine human experience, may your spirit go to the light.

    I spoke to this young man in February and told him how proud I was of him. Very well mannered. My condolences to Reggie,Kara and the rest of the family.
