  • Kevin Dee Taylor was born March 25, 1957, in Ely, Nevada to Ann and William Taylor. He left us with heavy heart on August 29, 2021, at the age of 64. He served his country in the military in 1975, during the Vietnam war. He was a dedicated father, grandfather, a great brother, a loving uncle, and a loyal friend to so many. Kevin was “one of a kind” with a huge heart filled with love. Facing his foe with grace, courage, and dignity, he spent his final days showing his love for you with every breath, as he always did.

    Kevin enjoyed family gatherings by sharing his love of fishing. Rain or shine, he would walk the earth to his favorite spot. He left a footprint in our hearts, and we will continue to carry on his legacy. Kevin was a strong person who dedicated his life helping others. He would open his home to those who needed a place to sleep. He fed those who needed food. He was giant with a gentle heart. He will be greatly missed, but he will never be forgotten.

    Kevin is survived by his children; Brittney Taylor, (Dustin Steffensen), Vincent DeLaura, and Darron Taylor; his loving grandchildren, Dylan Dallas, Taylor, and Jaxon Steffensen; his brothers; Burt, Bill and Kyle Taylor; sisters Sandra Spiva and Dortha Taylor; and his wonderful nieces and nephews.
    A viewing will be held, Tuesday September 7, 2021 at 9:00 am at the Utah Veterans Cemetery and Memorial Park Chapel, 17111 South Camp Williams Road (1700 West) in Bluffdale, Utah. The Celebration of Kevin’s Life will begin at 10:00 am. Interment will follow with Military Honors.

    Look For Me In The Rainbows

    Time for me to go now, I won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
    In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,
    Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

    Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.
    In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,
    Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you.

    It won’t be forever, the day will come and then
    My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

    Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.
    Every waking moment, and all your whole life through
    Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

    Just wish me to be near you,
    And I’ll be there with you.
