Reginald Taliaferro was born on September 8, 1934 in Brownsville, TN to the parents of Ernest and Callie Taliaferro. He was the fourth child born to this union. As a young man Reginald migrated to Chicago, IL. Reginald started his work career at Martin Oil Corporation as a Gas Station Attendant. Reginald worked for Martin Oil Corp. fifteen plus years in various leadership roles. Reginald furthered his career with Gulf Oil Company, wherein he continued to thrive in the industry. Reginald would later partner with his brother Joseph as owners of several gas stations.  Due to the change of the gas station industry moving into a self–service model, Reginald and Joseph were forced to close their stations. Reginald returned to the workforce and was employed by National Can Company. He remained there over fifteen years until his retirement.

During Reginald’s early years, he was blessed with his first child, a daughter, Regina Taliaferro. In Reginald’s prime while working and enjoying life, he met and married his soulmate, Cammie. During this union a son was born, Talion Taliaferro.

Reginald spent the rest of his years enjoying life.
