Not sure what to say?

So many lives have been touched by this wonderful man. What a legacy he leaves behind and a beacon of good and right. I feel blessed to have had some time on this planet with Kent Taylor. My heart goes out Peggy and all of his family.

I so remember his joy while singing, his straight bow tie, and how he always belted out a "Hell-o, Bets!" when I saw him. Such a selfless man who dedicated so much to youth, he will be missed but this legacy will continue. Peace to all the Taylors.

My heartfelt condolences to the Taylor Family. Kent was truly one of THE Gentle men of LTHS. I will always remember how he welcomed me to the LTHS family, and how he supported the choral program. Peggy and his children were incredibly involved and encouraging to so many. Blessings to the Taylor Family. Kent made such a difference to our lives.

I remember Kent as being one of the kindest, most gentle men at the Congregational Church. He was such a strong voice in the choir.

Thoughts and prayers are with the Taylor family.

Kent and Peg were our neighbors for 23 years. They were the best neighbors ever!! Friendly, warm, funny, helpful....I could go on. We have missed them since their move to Plymouth Place. We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the entire Taylor family.

Kent's warmth and friendliness radiated every day in the halls of LT. He always found the time to ask me, as a new teacher in 1976, how I was getting along. He was a roll model for us all. He will be missed. Bob Swynenburg

May you find peace and hope in the loving support of family and friends. Even though we at Thiel College did not know Kent personally, we certainly know him through Kent and Susan and are grateful for the life he led. Peace and love in the coming days. Mary Theresa and Donald Hall
