Fort Hood National Bank (FHNB) is saddened to announce the death of Senior Vice President Ron Taylor, Director of Military Banking. Taylor joined FHNB on April 5, 1999 after retiring from 22 years of service in the U.S. Army.
During his tenure at FHNB, Ron Taylor was responsible for countless FHNB financial literacy programs, including a Pre-Deployment Program, Financial Awareness Classes, Financial Readiness Program, In-Processing and Out-Processing Soldiers and Military Dependents, and Command Financial Specialist (CFS) Department Classes. He was recognized 11 times by the Independent Bankers Association of Texas for his commitment to Financial Education. Additionally, Taylor received the Leaders in Financial Education (LiFE) Award from the Texas Bankers Association. His unparalleled devotion to the financial success of the Fort Hood Community was pivotal to FHNB receiving the coveted honor of the Department of the Army's Military Bank of the Year Award an unprecedented 11 times. He was instrumental in the growth and success of the Central Texas Fort Hood Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA), contributing to the many awards earned by the chapter over the past 17 years. He was serving as the fourth region president at the time of his death.
"Ron Taylor cared deeply for soldiers and their families," said FHNB President Terry Tuggle. "His dedication to bettering the lives of our men and women in uniform didn't stop here at the bank; it bled into every area of his life. He was a great leader in our organization and a great friend to all who knew him. He touched the lives of many people throughout his career. He will be greatly missed. We will continue to uphold and honor his legacy of serving those who serve."
Taylor is survived by his wife, Evelyn, his daughters, Shineka and Eboni, and his grandchildren Aubrey, Demarcus and Terrell.
