Funeral services for Marine Lance Corporal Joshua Taylor have been finalized. Taylor was killed in a training accident in Nevada last week.
Visitation will be at the Reno Chapel of Hadley Funeral Home from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 pm on Friday.  Services with full military honors will be at the Marietta High School Auditorium at 10 am Saturday. Graveside services and burial will be at Mound Cemetery.
Corporal Taylor’s body is scheduled to arrive in Columbus around 3:00 Wednesday afternoon, before being brought to Marietta.  Some members of the community are working to organize people along Pike Street from I-77 exit 1 to the funeral home at 1021 Pike Street. the interchange with Interstate 77 to the funeral home.That's expected to occur sometime around 5:30 or 6 pm.
Marines from Corporal Taylor’s unit have been given permission to attend the services this weekend.  Their regular pay and benefits won’t cover the cost of the trip from North Carolina here, so people are being asked to help in the form of gas cards or a small cash donation to assist them in making the trip.
If you’d like to make a donation, you can drop that off at American Flags and Poles, 276 Front Street, from 10 am until 5 pm Thursday and Friday. 
For more information about that, call Anita White at 236-3280.
