4 July, 1930 – 25 April, 2021
Leslie K.W. Taylor passed away peacefully on the morning of April 25, 2021. Les is predeceased by his beloved wife Sylvia Taylor (nee Knibbs); parents William and Constance Taylor; sister Bea Faubert; and brother Ray Taylor. He is survived by his children; son Kevin (Madonna) Taylor; daughters Vicki Taylor and Laurie Taylor (Trevor); and sons Trevor (Corinna) Taylor and Trent Taylor. Les had 9 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren who he loved very much; they were the light of his life. He would tell everyone he met that he had 30 children, but he couldn’t remember everyone’s names. Then he would laugh, and say “getting old sucks”. He is also survived by his brother-in-law David Faubert; sisters-in-law Sadie Taylor and Sheila (Gerry) Olver; as well as many nieces and nephews. Les worked hard. He spent his career in the peripheral of trucking, both in management and sales. He loved to golf with friends and colleagues.

As Marina mentioned Les came to visit when in Ontario or in Quebec. My son, Chad Leslie Faubert, is named after Uncle Les. When David and I visited Calgary in 1982, we stayed with Uncle Les and Aunt Sylvia. When they heard we had never been to the Rockies, off we went to see their splendor. It was a memorable visit so long ago, but one which I will never forget. Thank you, Uncle Les!

Uncle Les used to visit Ontario when on business. He would buy us Chinese food, which we loved, every time. He would sit in my Dad’s lazyboy and let me crawl up in his lap and sit with him however long I wanted. He would tell jokes and we would laugh.
He visited on business right through when I was married and had children of my own in Toronto.
He always had time for me and I made sure to visit him when I was out west visiting my daughter.
We were always welcome in their lively, active home! Sooooo many fun memories!
He had and still has a very special place in my heart. I watched him care for Aunt Sylvia in an inspiring and loving, gentle way. He will be greatly missed. I love you Uncle Les ❤️❤️❤️
