Michael John Taylor

May 23, 1947 - October 10, 2014


With sadness we announce that Mike passed away on Friday October 10, age 67, at Kootenay Lake Hospital after a short battle with cancer. Mike was born in Winnipeg Manitoba and raised in Burnaby B.C. Graduating from St. Thomas Aquinas High School, he spent two years in a Catholic seminary at Carlton University in Ottawa before returning to B.C. After a short stint with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Queen Charlotte City, Michel-Natal, and Penticton, he enrolled at Simon Fraser University, graduating with Honours English. Mike apprenticed with Vancouver Playhouse Theatre and was involved in theatre stage managing and set construction over his working career. Moving to Nelson five years ago, he discovered his passion for golf and became an active member of the seniors group at Balfour Golf Club. He was also involved in local theatre.

Mike was predeceased by his father Gordon Taylor, his war bride mother, Margaret, and his brother, Kerry. He is survived by his sister-in-law, Norma Taylor, and his nephew, Curtis Taylor as well as his many friends in Nelson.

Family and friends would like to thank Dr’s Malpass, Reinecke, Svarta, the nurses of the Third Floor KLH and Rev. Marcella Mugford for their care and compassion in his final days. Donations in Mike’s memory can be made to either St. Saviour’s Anglican Church Legacy Fund or Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation. There will be a service at St. Saviour’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral, 701 Ward Street, on Friday October 24 at 2 pm with light refreshments and reminisces to follow. Funeral arrangements are in charge of Thompson’s Funeral Service.On line condolences may be expressed at wwwthompsonfs.ca
