TAYLOR, Rodney Heaney Trevor It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Rodney Heaney Trevor Taylor. Born on August 21, 1926 in Victoria, passing peacefully on March 15, 2017 in West Vancouver at the age of 90 after a short illness. Trevor is survived by his five children, Wendy (Bob Sinclair), Rod (Penny Anderson), Randall, Les (Tomoko Miyahara) and Dean (Jamie Reber) and his three grandchildren, Nathan (Vicki), Travis (Noriko) and Noah in Tokyo. A native of Victoria, Trevor valued his deep maternal roots there and recently enjoyed researching his father's history as a radio engineer with the Marconi Company who while working on both east and west coasts was notably involved in installation of the coasts' first radio stations. Dad was an avid sportsman. As a golfer, fisherman, racquet sportsman and bon vivant, he enjoyed life to its fullest. A recent member of both the Union Club and Uplands Golf Club, he enjoyed good company, golf, snooker and a bit of scotch. His post high school years included Craigdarroch Castle and UBC, graduating with a B.Comm in 1948. Following several years with Coca-Cola and Standard Oil he established T. Taylor Consultants Ltd. (A.A.C.I 1963), from which he retired in 1984. Whilst living in Vancouver and on Salt Spring Island he loved fishing, crabbing, swimming, golfing and…scotch. He returned to Victoria for his last years. Active in his community wherever he lived, Trevor loved travelling and exploring family tree connections around the world. A keen supporter of the arts in Victoria, his love and support of the Canadian College of Performing Arts and Dance Victoria was recognized and appreciated. We'd like to express our appreciation towards all those who called him their friend. No official service, but receptions in Vancouver, April 2nd in West Vancouver and in Victoria, April 15th at the Union Club. No flowers please but donate to the charity of your choice in his memory.
