Patrick Harlo "Rick" Taylor

Patrick "Rick" Harlo TAYLOR July 9, 1949 ~ March 8, 2011 A remarkable man.... Rick spent the last few days of his life in the tender embrace of his family. In addition to loving his family and friends Rick also loved puttering on his retirement ranch in Tonasket with his horses and Coby, his beloved dog. Not having Rick in our lives will be as sad as a tree with no branches, a crashing sea with no sound, and a sky with no stars. Rick was preceded in death by his parents, George and Helen Taylor, and his older brother Mike. He is survived by his wife Lynn Taylor (Tonasket), daughter Ricanna Taylor (Lynnwood), sisters Lori Oncina (Mercer Island) and Tammi Taylor (Kent), an endless list of nephews and nieces, and great-nephews and nieces who adored their Uncle Rick, and a multitude of other family members who are equally heartbroken. A memorial service will be held March 17th @ 3:00 p.m. at the Mercerwood Shoreclub on Mercer Island.
