October 12, 1935 - November 17, 2017 Byron Winfield Taylor, age 82, passed away November 17, 2017 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born October 12, 1935 in Long Beach, California, to parents Dudley Winfield Taylor and Genevieve Jeannette Rooney. He attended Grant Union High School and CSUN. He married Solvi Marion Olsen on July 20, 1963 in Mexico. He was a member of the L.D.S. Church. During his lifetime, Byron was passionate about religion, running and reading. His zest for learning made him a go-to for answers. Byron was asked at 24 to teach a gospel doctrine class, one year prior to being baptized in the L.D.S. church. Byron was also part of the Santa Monica running community-this was before running became trendy. He was thrilled to attend track meets and help train others. Byron married the love of his life, Solvi in 1963. They were later married in the LDS Temple in L.A. They were-are-committed to one another eternally. Byron proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1953 to 1961. He loved his country and our flag. Byron loved to surprise his children on Saturday mornings with a trip to Magic Mountain, Disneyland, or with donuts.
