I have been so fortunate to of known Mr. Taylor for so long. Even when he was not feeling well, he could still make you smile. He has been an inspiration to me and all of the people he has touched. Mr. Taylor always had a wonderful story to tell and had a special way to captivate his audience. I will miss him and happy he is where he wants to be. Thanks for the memories Ivan Taylor. He was truly one of a kind and will be missed by all at Riker Irrigation! Jon Jenks
