On Tuesday afternoon Danny was riding his Vulcan Drifter in his hometown of Texarkana when an
18 yr female in an SUV came across 4 lanes to make a left hand turn and collided. Danny suffered
head injuries and died in hospital. He was wearing a helmet but it came off. He was 59 and
leaves his wife Debbie and family.
I met Danny and Deb at my first VROC reunion at Iron Horse in 2004 and remained friends since, he
was not active here but was instrumental in organizing many Drifter events. He and Deb have several
Vulcans and travelled USA and Canada.
Danny was devoted to his family, church, and motorcycling. I will miss him.
Rest peacefully, my friend............
VROC condolences to the family
of Danny Taylor.
Rest in peace Danny.
