Gary James Taylor Obituary
GARY JAMES TAYLOR September 6, 1946 April 25, 2015 He battled long and hard on his terms against an illness we knew would finally win. Leaving behind his partner in life, Perry; his sister, Donna; brother, Jack, and their spouses and families. He also leaves behind many wonderful lifelong loved ones. Especially Ron Smith. Also George, Arnold and Bruce. Born in Oakdale, California he followed his heart to New Jersey where he attended Mercer College, then moved back to California to attend Chabot College to earn his BA in fine art. Gary was an innkeeper for the past 15 years where he met people from all walks of life. He enjoyed hours of visiting with guests and sharing his opinions and views on a vast spectrum of topics. He was also an avid gardener, and loved music from Broadway show tunes and opera. He was active in Stanislaus County, raising money and awareness for the Gay and Lesbian community before moving to Del Norte County, and finally to Idyllwild, which he loved dearly. A special thank you to David and Barbara Porter, who he called his angels, and David and Barbara Gross and Gary Parton, for their love and friendship. A celebration of life will be held on May 16, 2015 at Alpenglow Gardens, 25025 Fern Valley Rd. Idyllwild beginning at 1:00 pm till 5:00 pm. "And I think to myself, what a wonderful life"
