TAYLOR, Sean "Sax" February 22, 1970 - November 18, 2021 On November 18, 2021, Mr. Sean Taylor, popularly known as DJ Sean Sax, passed away peacefully in his sleep in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, due to complications of his autoimmune illness. Sean lived his life with such altruism that he did not want his health to be the focal point. For the greater part of the last three decades, Sean lived with ankylosing spondylitis - stoically and determined to continue to share his authentic self with the world. Sean Kenrick Leonard Taylor was born on February 22, 1970 at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Toronto, only child to his mother, Ms. Barbara Taylor, the eldest son of Mr. Kenrick Hercules and older brother to Jason Hercules and Kamila Gwinn. Sean's early childhood years were spent living between Toronto and Cocoyea Village, San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago. His sons, Xavier and Quinton, were always a source of pride that he put on full display for all to see and his drive to keep moving forward regardless of life's obstacles was fueled by his enduring love for them and his extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. As an accomplished DJ, with a musical journey that spanned over four decades, Sean played at different hot spots around Toronto, eventually becoming a resident DJ at some of the most popular locations including Power Bar (which was broadcast into the homes of people from Buffalo to Toronto by WBLK), Industry, Supermarket and Revival. Sean also was the resident DJ for regular events including Do Right Saturdays and Gumbo. Sean's "Soul on Ice" radio show had listeners on two different continents for more than half a decade. Sean never forgot his roots as a musician and produced songs for recording artists as well as played percussion for live bands. All of these experiences allowed Sean to continue to share his love for music. Rest In Everlasting Peace, Sean "Sax" Taylor. Founder, Creator, Supporter of all music - The world was certainly blessed with your presence and we will continue your legacy of musically touching souls. A Celebration of Life to take place on Monday, December 6th at 3 p.m. in Mount Pleasant Funeral Centre by Invitation Only.
