June 21, 1975 to July 5, 2015

It is with deep sadness and tremendous sorrow that we have to announce the sudden passing of our son, father, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend, Judd Taylor.

Judd was born in Maple Ridge BC on June 21, 1975. He had just celebrated his 40th birthday. Judd died in Red Deer AB on July 5, 2015.

Whether you knew Judd well or if you had only met him once, you knew he was a one-of-a-kind man. There will never be another person with more potential in the world! He was seen as the person who “had it all”. Judd will be lovingly remembered by his good looks, his sparkling blue eyes, his deep voice, his sense of humour, his energy, his sense of style, how smart he was, his contagious laugh, his kind, loving, caring and charismatic personality. There was nothing that Judd couldn’t do; from plumbing to mechanics to fixing computers to building a house. If Judd wanted something, Judd found a way to get it. His determination was admirable. Judd did everything to the extreme. There was no middle ground. Judd would have given you the shirt off his back, no questions asked. Everyone who met him, had a soft heart for him. He was truly a beautiful person inside and out.

Judd is survived by his mourning family: his mother Idella Meier (Ken), his father Ruben Taylor (Josie), his sister Sharmay Taylor, his son Stuart Taylor Kremler, his niece Phoenix Taylor, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends as well as his 95-year-old grandmother May Taylor (Marcel).

Judd was predeceased by his grandfather Reuben, grandfather Samuel, grandmother Jean, uncle Allyn, his best buddy Chewie, as well as several friends.

A celebration of life will be held on September 5, 2015 at 2:00pm at the Desert Cove Rec Centre. If able, please bring an appetizer to share.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donating to an educational/trust fund for his son. A donation box will be available at the celebration of life or donations can be made online at youcaring.com and search for “Judd Taylor”.
