We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Community of Hope Funeral Service
Tracy DeAndre Taylor; the son of Larry D. and Brenda Parks was born on March 5, 1972. He departed his earthly life on August 6, 2021. Tracy had a very outstanding personality. To know him was to love him. He was indeed a “one of a kind” type of guy. Tracy loved to see others happy. He always had something to say that would cause you to laugh. Indeed, he was our family comedian. He was employed by Budd Group.
Tracy attended Edenton Chowan School and graduated from John A. Holmes High School in 1990. After graduating, he joined the U.S. Navy where he served four years. After returning home from the Navy, Tracy moved to Newport News, Va; where he met Angela Ross and decided to take her as his bride.
