Taylor remembered for Sovereign legacy

A local legend in cross-country skiing is being remembered fondly.

Fred Taylor, a founder of the Sovereign Lake Nordic Club, died Sept. 25 at the age of 101.

Taylor often reflected on how skiing has changed from wooden skis, leather bindings and woolen knickers to high-tech equipment and clothing.

He continued racing until he was 97-years-old.

“It’s been a good life,” said Taylor during a 2011 interview.

Taylor is survived by his wife Joyce, sons Frank, Jim and Lars.

A  memorial service will be held at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home Oct. 5 at 2 p.m.
