Hurdel Minton you will be missed!!!!!
I am gonna miss you very much. When my Papaw Taylor died you stepped in an filled his shoes for me. You had a long History with the Taylor Family , that was when you delivered fuel with a team of horses an wagon. I love you an pray God will give your Family strength at this sad time. I will never forget you an I Love You Very Much !!!
To the Minton Family: My prayers are with you tonight and in the days that follow. I remember Hurdel delivering gas to a tank my dad had in Provo, when I was a child. Almost 20 years ago when I was visiting Maxine to do some genealogy, I received several family stories from Hurdel. He had known my dad for a long time....Is there anyone in Butler and surrounding counties he didn't know? He always made me feel welcome when I would come and go. Sometimes I would arrive about the same time he returned from a paper run, Maxine would prepare his supper, while he entertained me with his stories.I don't think I ever left that he didn't have a story to tell me. He always laughed about his age and had something funny to say about that. He will be missed.
So sorry Maxine and family for your lose. Hurdel was a one of a kind and will be missed by many. May God's love bring you peace in this very sad time.
Hurdel was always happy and always had a joke to share with you or words of wisdom, he made an impression in my life and will be missed. Hurdel" Love you a dollars worth"
I am sorry to hear about Hurdel,he was always smiling, and had a kind word for everyone, he introduced me to the LDS church. James Allen, David Bruce, and Maxine are all dear friends, may the Lord comfort you all.
Maxine, so sorry to hear of your loss. Hurdel was a wonderful person I had known since I was 11 years old. Love, Bettye
I am Buddy and Pat Decker's daughter from Bowling Green. Uncle Hurdel let me ride with him in his Semi to New York in 1973 so that I could be in the Hill Cumorah Pageant. That was a testimony cementing experience for me that I will never forget. I am thankful for his influence in my life.
Always telling me stories about Daddy (Bobby Rone Taylor). My sympathies to his family.Janeen

Maxine, I am so sorry to hear of Hurdels passing. He was a wonderful man. When Randy and I would be there visiting and see him, we enjoyed his stories, especially the one about the racoon..He will see Randy in Heaven and have lots of stories to tell each other. May God Bless you and your family during this time. Jean Lindsey (Mrs. Randall Lindsey)
I am Peggy ( Marjorie & Clifford Lindsey's daughter) Uncle Hurdel was very special to me. He was good to everyone, but especially good to my mother all of her life. I loved to hear Uncle Hurdel pray, he was so elegant. God bless Maxine & all of the family.
