Frank Calhoun Taylor, formerly of Owensboro, passed away February 28, 2022, at his home in Lexington following a 3-year battle with cancer. He was 64. Frank was born in Owensboro December 9, 1957, a son of the late C. Waitman and Margaret Brannon Taylor. A 1975 graduate of Owensboro High School, Frank played on the high school tennis team from the seventh thru the twelfth grade. With his brother Waitman they won the regional doubles championship. Frank was a graduate of the University of Kentucky where he was a member of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity. As a young entrepreneur, he and his friend Ray McCormick created the teen gathering place C.W. Skeeters Boogie Shack, named for their fathers. Frank had a wry sense of humor which fit well with his reputation as a storyteller.
