Ronald James TAYLOR

With profound sadness we announce his passing on April 14, at the E.K.R.H.

Born in Bassano, Alberta to Fred & Ruby Taylor. He spent his childhood in Penticton. He went to R.C.M.P. training in Regina and his first posting was in Cranbrook, then Wells, Ft. St. John & his dream job, in Parksville, as a motorcycle officer on Highway Patrol. He retired after 24 years back to Cranbrook to enjoy this fishing & hunting utopia & touring on his Harleys. Although his life ended far too soon, he lived life to the utmost.

A devout Christian, he attended the First Baptist Church.

He is survived by his loving wife, Arlene. His children, Kylie & Kal Mattu, (Deacon, Alyda & Zaara). Adam & Jenny Taylor, (Jesse). His Mom Ruby Taylor, brother John & Lynn Taylor & family. Arlene’s children, Mark & Andrea Thorrougood, (Jennifer & Matthew). Andrea Bova, (Jagger & Eden). Aleisha & Darryl Elliott. Mother-in-law Margaret Sanche & her family.

He had many friends who cared deeply for him. He was pre-deceased by his father Fred Taylor & sister-in-law Terry Dean.

A celebration of his life was held on April 17th, in their home for their immediate family.

Grateful thanks to Dr. Van Rensburg & the emergency staff at the hospital.

Ron, happy riding, shooting & fishing in Heaven.

Love you lots!
