Jay Kent Taylor

TAYLOR, Jay Kent June 21, 1946 - January 4, 2017 with profound sadness, we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved and loving husband, father and grandfather, Jay Kent Taylor, in his home in Birch Bay, Washington on January 4, 2017. Jay is survived by his wife, soul mate and joy of his life, Florence Taylor and children: Kevin (Cherie) Taylor; Denise Taylor (Ryan Chamness) and Trevor Taylor.  He leaves behind, siblings Sherrill (Blaine) Nelson, Glenn (Janice) Taylor, Micheline (Will) McKay and Sidney (Catherine) Taylor.  Cherished grandchildren: Spencer and Marissa (Taylor) and Ethan Chamness. Jay was born June 21, 1946 in Burnaby, BC, the eldest son of Sidney and Mavis Taylor.  After spending most of his childhood years growing up in South Burnaby, Jay continued his post-secondary education completing professional degrees in geological and mining engineering at the University of British Columbia. Jay worked as a global pioneer in mining spanning the last 33 years of his career leading Placer Dome Inc. The challenges opened doors for both Jay and Florence to live abroad in Canada, Chile, South America, and The United States of America. After retiring, Jay continued his hobbies in classic car restoration, as well as travel with his many friends and family.  He took pride in seeing all his family pursue their education and dreams.  He had an enormous impact on all those who knew and worked with him.  Most of all, Jay loved his wife, children and grandchildren and they will miss him immensely.  The family will be confirming a future date for his celebration of life. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Bellingham Peace Health Hospice Society. To leave a condolence for the family
