  1. Rest In Peace Jim Tayoun. Good public servant. You helped us fight to keep Mrs. Fromm as the curator of the Edgar Allen Poe house, on Spring Garden St. That goes way back in the seventies. Will never forget. Thank you.

  2. Very sorry to hear of the passing of Jim Tayoun Sr. He was the last surviving member of the original group that placed a Nativity scene in Independence Park in 1996.

  5. The Chapel of Four Chaplains at the Navy Yard would like to extend its deepest sympathy to the Tayoun Family on the loss of Mr. Tayoun. His commitment to Philadelphia and its rich history is what we will remember most of him. He was a long-time supporter of the Chapel’s and even an award recipient from April 1975. Our prayers to the family during this time. He will be remembered always here at the Foundation.
