Jay “Bird” Taylor passed away on the evening of August 3rd after months of battling cancer. Throughout the proceeding week he was surrounded and visited by friends and family. Born in Nebraska, Jay spent much of his childhood in California. He followed in his father’s footsteps, joining the Air Force and serving active duty for more than 4 years. Afterwards, Jay spent almost two decades proudly serving in the National Guard. He was a certified Honda mechanic and dedicated his life fixing anything with a motor. Jay was best known for being a selfless friend with a contagious laugh. He would tell you that he’s most proud of his daughter, Nicole…she was everything to him.

Rest in peace, Jay Bird. We love you. “Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul…” Memorials may be made to donor's choice.
