                                                                                 Vale Alf Taylor

                                Funeral for Alf will be held at the Gosford Uniting Church on Thursday November 2nd at 11am.

A true legend of GMS was the talented, creative and inspirational gentleman, Alf Taylor, who passed away on Saturday October 28th.

Alf was an exceptional stage performer who had carried out many duties for GMS including building stage properties, production management, Committee work and fatherly guidance.

A member for over 40 years, Alf began his GMS career in 1976 when he appeared in the whacky stage musical Li’l Abner as the “nasty” General Bullmoose.

Other stage characters included the hilarious Erroneous (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), slippery banker Babcock (Mame), gambler Nathan Detroit (Guys & Dolls), billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Annie), talented composer Arthur Sullivan (Tarantara, Tarantara), family man Jacob / enraged husband Potiphar (Joseph), flakey King Pellinore (Camelot), cranky Everett Baker (Crazy for You) and of course his greatest role ….. Tevye the Milkman in Fiddler on the Roof.

Condolences to his wonderful wife Noela, their children and grandchildren.

Alf’s positive attitude, charming nature and willingness to help everyone made him an absolute role model for all who knew him. 
A truly outstanding human being.
