There's nothing on Wikipedia. Can't believe you losers are trying to get a Meshach Taylor death hoax going...set the bar higher next time.
Jan Hooks, hanging on by a thread
Im sorry, I'm the one who started the death thing. I misread what I read on another website. Basically his family posted something on Facebook saying he is currently passing at any minute. Sorry to upset everyone but Im glad his family is able to spend more time with him.
Etienne wants to know if he died, too.

Has Meshach Taylor from Designing Women passed away?
Is Meshach gay or what? I know he's married with kids, but he was a little TOO good as "Hollywood" in those 'Mannequin' movies.
He's married and he's an ACTOR babe.
From his family:
"It is with love and gratitude that we sorrowfully announce that our darling, amazingly brilliant and dynamic, Meshach, the incredible father, husband, son and friend has begun his grand transition. Our friends who know and love us, please offer your prayers for his peace and blazing light as he ascends to the heavens. Those who need to call the family please do. Those who desire to post memories, we are open and graciously accepting all gestures of peace. Love,
the Taylor Family Tariq TaylorYasmine TaylorTamar Lashae TaylorEsme Taylor"
Alice Ghostley is waiting for his arrival so she can sing him this:
Will Delta Burke make a rare public appearance at the funeral, or is she too fat to leave the house now?
But is he dead dead?
Black man, black man, where have you gone to? Oh, there you are!
Has "begun his grand transition" sounds like assisted suicide.
He was receiving "Hospice at Home" care.
Don't knock it. When my mother was consumed (she weighed 68lbs down from her normal 98lbs) with cancer, they couldn't put that last shot in her IV quick enough. Leave Hollywood Montrose a dignified death, and STFU.
Not really, R49. Probably means he'd gone unconscious and it was just a waiting game at that point. It's fairly common for cancer victims to spend their last few days in a coma "transitioning".
R33 Haven't seen Mannequin in years but found this compilation of Meshach's clips from it. You are right, he was very convincing. And fabulous! Watching this I remember I had a huge crush on Andrew McCarthy. I must only have been about 9 or 10 when I first saw this. Seeing Andrew, I knew what I was....
Wonderful actor. And his story of Celebrity Ghost Stories was one of the few to creep me out.
Will be missed.
is covering up AIDS deaths really doing anything positive? Making it seem like people aren't still dying from AIDS when in fact they still are?
R55 You're probably one of the idiots who insist Andy Warhol died of AIDS instead of shitty healthcare. Grease fire. Think about dying in one.
Loved his elevator scene death in THE OMEN 2.
r56 - who? never heard of him.
Meshach was gay; now he dies of an unspecified cancer? Also since 1991 a total of ZERO men and women in Hollywood have contracted HIV. Do you believe this is even close to being credible?
You know he was gay or you think he was? Got some tea?
well I read on this very site that he was gay; well he had gay sex with different men
His wife, children, grandchildren and mother surrounded him as he passed away, his publicist said
r61 I hope you aren't suggesting he couldn't be gay because he was married?
If he was HIV+, is it more likely that he seroconverted in the 90s and got access to ARVs pretty quickly?
'Meschach Taylor: I can give you the names and numbers of at least 5 men who fucked Taylor when he was a Chicago actor."
from a different thread on here
Is he gay?

He's DEAD, Mary.
Didn't realize he was only 67. I figured he was at least in his 70s by now.
This thread now has more replies than the number of years in his life.
How OLD is Sidney Poitier? For fuck's sake!
R.I.P. and thanks for the laughs.
Was he the guy from Ghost Busters?
No, R72. That was Ernie Hudson.

Wow. I thought he was actually younger. I'm watching his Criminal Minds episode now and looked him up as I'm only familiar with Designing Women. He was fantastic in that episode. I had no idea he'd passed away. I thought he was 10 yrs. younger. RIP.
