The Roanoke Valley is mourning a devoted teacher, a beloved pastor, and an eloquent leader tonight.
Former Roanoke Mayor Noel C. Taylor died this morning of heart failure. He was 75.
Tonight, Joe Dashiell reports on a life like few others.

((Noel Taylor spent 22 years on city council... 17 as mayor.
As the city's top elected official, he was also its chief booster, and when he wasn't in the pulpit of High Street Baptist Church he was preaching with pride about Roanoke's progress and its promise.
[SOT 27:16 TAYLOR YEARS]
[IN Q=And we look forward]

((AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT 100 YEARS AS A CITY EXCITED ABOUT ITS FUTURE, A CITY OF OPPORTUNITY, A CITY OF UNITY OF PURPOSE SEEKING QUALITY OF LIFE THAT'S GOOD FOR ALL OF ITS CITIZENS.)) [RUNS:12]
[OUT Q=a great bond of love has been established.]


A native of Bedford County, Taylor began his career as a rural elementary school teacher... until he says he could resist his calling no longer. He came to prominence in the civil rights struggles of the early 60s, such as the movement to close the Washington Street dump.
[SOT A-26 47:23]
[IN Q=We say to those tonight that would]

((WE SAY TO THOSE TONIGHT THAT WOULD HOLD US DOWN THAT THE TRAIN IS STILL ROLLING. THE TRAIN IS COMING. YOU'D BETTER GET YOUR BUSINESS RIGHT. YOU'D BETTER SET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER, BECAUSE THE TRAIN MAY BE HERE TONIGHT.)) [RUNS:16]
[OUT Q=may be here tonight.]


Taylor defied political stereotypes. In 1970, he sought the Republican nomination for city council. [TAYLOR CAMPAIGN VIDEO]
[IN Q=It is my earnest request]

((IT IS MY EARNEST REQUEST THAT YOU WILL VOTE FOR NOEL C. TAYLOR ON JUNE 9TH 1970.)) [RUNS:09]
[OUT Q=on June 9th, 1970.]


He won. Taylor became mayor in 1975... eventually serving longer than any other mayor in Roanoke's history. But in 1992, under treatment for prostate cancer, Taylor decided to step down from city council.
And on June 30th, he cleaned out his desk, turned off the light and walked from his office at city hall.
[SOT JOE'S STOCKTAPE 10:26]
[IN Q=I hope the work I've done]

((I HOPE THE WORK I'VE DONE WILL SPEAK FOR ME AND WHEN THE GOSPEL TRAIN COMES I WANT TO CATCH IT... AT THE ROANOKE STATION. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR MANY PRAYERS AND FOR THE MANY, MANY BLESSINGS. AND MAY THE LOVE OF GOD ABIDE WITH YOU ALWAYS AND MAY THE LOVE OF GOD BE VERY REAL TO EACH ONE OF YOU. AND I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART.)) [RUNS:41]
[OUT Q=Love you with all my heart. APPLAUSE]


After his exit from city hall, Taylor was in the public eye less often. He was honored by members of the General Assembly, and he appeared in the play To Kill a Mockingbird at Mill Mountain theater.
But his energies were focused on his family and his church... where he continued to preach until his retirement last December.

(("I do not believe in worshiping anything but God Our Savior, but I will always enjoy Halloween," wrote a viewer from Hardy.[Brenda Kesler] "If you treat Halloween as the devil's playground, then you are in for trouble. But you can have fun with Halloween and not give the devil the credit he thinks he is due...So thank you Roanoke and Roanoke County for standing up and keeping your backbone straight."
But a Roanoke [Heather Froeschl] resident told us: "I thought we lived in the land of the free? How can Roanoke's City Council allow the church to dictate what people celebrate? What happened to the separation of church and state? Halloween is not a floating holiday. It is older than Thanksgiving and more widely celebrated...Appeasing the Gods. Didn't Halloween get started to appease the spirits?...Bad move city council."
And a viewer from Radford [Becky Strough] wrote: "Halloween IS a religious practice. All Hallows Eve, commonly referred to as Halloween, is the day before the Christian celebration of All Saints Day, or All Hallows Day, a day when Christians can celebrate the lives and works of the saints. The idea is to scare away all the evil spirits before such a holy celebration. I believe religious leaders should work to educate and inform their congregations, rather than condemning the common misconceptions and secular practices of a holiday celebration."
