a light lives on…

donnyASHTABULA — On Dec. 27, 2015, the world lost Donny Taylor, a blessed and loving son, husband, brother, and friend. His touch brought light and love to all that surrounded him. To all that have had the honor to have known this precious and kind soul, we are grateful to you for your love and blessings and wish you the very best in your life.

For those who did not know him, rest assured he is finally orchestrating his finest concert of all, that being the power of bringing people together for a greater cause. Be well and know that All is not lost with the passing of this cherished being, but rather gained in enlightenment and courage. This time is not of sorrow but of hope, and this hope is greater than all of Donny’s earthbound accomplishments combined.

Donny would want you all to think of him, smile, hug a friend and sing a song – a song filled with tears of abundant joy, filling an ocean of limitless bounding possibilities. He will forever be a guiding light in our stars.

To stand by his side during his transition are his parents, Bruce and Sandy Taylor of Ashtabula; two brothers, Mike and Tim Taylor; one sister, Carrie (Curt) Lucas; several nieces and nephews; and his wife, Molly T. Taylor and their dog, Reece Ann Taylor.


Hold The Coffee’s Decision 2015: Harbor Perk Coffeehouse and Roasting in Ashtabula

Every week in his column “Hold the Coffee”, News-Herald Reporter Simon Husted camps out at a Northeast Ohio neighborhood coffee shops reviewing their scene, menu, location and its space functionality.


For the highly anticipated ‘Decision 2015’, after reviewing coffee shops from areas in and around Cleveland’s Gordon Square, East 4th Street, Little Italy, Tremont, Lakewood and Willoughby he named our client, Harbor Perk as his favorite coffee shop of the year!

Husted says:

The coffee shop has an industrial flare that stands out, pride in its coffee roast blends, fun events like music nights, a vibrant staff and plenty of exposed brick. And most importantly, Harbor Perk plays a vital role in a city and neighborhood that’s digging itself out of an economic downfall and turning it around into a regional destination for arts and recreation. An exceptional coffee shop plays a big role in how I perceive a neighborhood and that isn’t any truer than Harbor Perk and Bridge Street.

Well said Simon!
