TAYLOR, Gary Norman Gary Norman Taylor was born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and he passed away suddenly on February 22nd 2014, at the age of 64. He loved living in Kailua-Kona for the past 17 years and is survived by his wife Rosemary, son Craig (Stacey), daughters Alli (Scott) and Alexis (Wilco), mother Lorna, sister Noreen (Tom), four grandchildren Victoria, Evan, Lucas, and Julia, and nieces Tanya and Tina. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father and son and by many for his accomplishments as a Marine Engineer, and Big Island employee of HELCO and Cyanotech. He was an avid fisherman and hunter, and began to love the game of golf later in life. He enjoyed all the communities in which he lived but he especially loved Kona and when he was not working on his backyard he was making plans to go out fishing as Captain of the Sugar Hook. No formal service will be held. His ashes will be scattered at Sea as this was his wish and the place that he loved the most. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Gary was the Chief Engineer on the MV Terry Fox when we first met in 1990. We sailed together in the Arctic Ocean and enjoyed many laughs in Victoria & Port Renfrew too. My sincerest condolences to Rosemary & family. Gary was a very enjoyable man & will be fondly remembered.

Dear Lorna, Noreen and family,
So sad to hear of Gary's passing. Growing up in James Bay and spending a lot of time with your family brings back a many great memories. The functions at James Bay Anglers, the many years of fishing derby's and the socials after will be with me forever. Hope you and your Dad catch the BIG ONE! Aloha Gary

Thought for a moment that I must tell my Mom but she passed away on Dec. 13th at 94 1/2. If my Mom (Phyllis Kerkin Meyer) could she would want to express her sympathies to you and your family, Lorna. Granny Kerkin often told us about her neighbours on Ladysmith St.
Sincerely, Leona Meyer
