Darrell S. Taylor passed away Sunday, May 2, 2010 at age 85. He was born July 17, 1924 to Frederic John Taylor and Maudlynne Beatrice Fillmore Taylor in Salt Lake City, Utah. He married his childhood sweetheart, Dorothy Barber on November 27, 1945 in the Salt Lake Temple. They were looking forward to their 65th wedding anniversary this year. Into their lives came four children: Lynn B. (Sue) Taylor, Newport, Washington, Dale B. deceased (Debbie), Taylor, Clarkston, Washington, Carolyn Taylor, Heber City, Utah and Nancy (Gerald) Christensen, Bountiful, Utah. He is survived by his wife, three children, 13 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and two brothers, J.R. Taylor and Lee Taylor. Darrell served in the Navy during W.W. II aboard an aircraft carrier. He even witnessed the two atomic bomb clouds from the flight deck. He owned his own business as a painting contractor. Retiring at age 55 he spent much of the next 30 years exploring the United States. He loved to leave the main roads, taking the less traveled and seeing so many of the great, marvelous and beautiful wonders of this land. For many years they spent the winter months in Quartzsite, AZ. where they made many new friends and enjoyed exploring the desert. He had a great love for his family and made sure he had one-on-one time with each of his children. He continued this tradition with each of his grandchildren giving them the opportunity to learn so much from him. Each was made to feel important and as if they were his favorite. The gospel of Jesus Christ was paramount in his life as a member of the Church of Latter-day Saints. His faith was demonstrated not only in the way in fulfilled his numerous callings including serving as a Stake missionary and with his wife as fulltime service missionaries, but also in the many quiet acts of charity he performed for people in need.
