Obituary

On Thursday July 11th, 2019, George Taylor, loving husband and father of three, passed away at the age of 74.
George was born on June 8, 1945 in Morris, Manitoba to Lawrence and Ariel Taylor. He completed his RCMP training in Regina, Saskatchewan in 1969 and was stationed throughout Saskatchewan. Over the next 35 years, he was in such centres as Regina, Indian Head, Yorkton, Ituna, Rostern, and Carnduff. On June 20, 1970, he married Valerie Anne Sprout and they later raised two sons, Mark and Kirk.
They relocated to Sundre, Alberta in 2000 and enjoyed several years in the community before Val’s passing in 2013. He continued to winter in Arizona where he met and later married Kim Webster on November 14, 2015 where step-daughter Marci joined the family.
George had number of passions that kept him busy through his retirement years. A regular golfer for several decades, he could be found on the golf course nearly daily whether it was in Alberta, in Arizona or in Montana during his yearly golfing excursion. He was softball enthusiast playing on teams in Arizona during the winter and around Sundre in the summer. He also continued his commitment to public service after retiring by serving as a town councillor in Sundre for two terms and President of his local home owners’ association in Mesa, Arizona for two terms. Regardless of it being golf, ball or politics, George was always known to be social beacon hosting gatherings around the bumper of a car, around a backyard fire or around a BBQ.
George was preceded in death by his parents as well as his brothers, Robert and Brian, and his sister, Francis. He is survived by wife, Kim, his three children, Mark, Kirk and Marci, his brother, Clark, and four grandchildren plus a number of nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion in Sundre, Alberta on Friday, July 19th at 2pm. A second celebration will be held in Regina later in the summer. In lieu of flower, the family requests that donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society on behalf of George.

I was very surprised and sorry to find out about George sudden passing. I did attend the celebration of life at the Sundre Legion. I was membership chair for the Legion when I first met George of which he wanted to be transferred to Sundre. While talking to him I found he was both an avid curler and golfer. We were in the process of forming a competitive curling team with desire to compete in the Seniors Provincial play downs and possible represent Alberta. However we fell short of that goal. We curled together for 5 years and I enjoyed every minute with the team as we traveled outside Sundre to compete in bonspiels and play downs. George enjoyed a glass of wine and the occasional dark rum. I also had the privilege to golf with George at Coyote Creek golf and RV resort. I wish we would have got together down south but we winter in Yuma. Unfortunately George is the second member of our curling team to pass on. Hopefully he can throw a few curling stones with Wally and golf the best courses heaven has to offer. He probably was the starting pitcher on the weekend. Good bye George. Jim Dykstra

We are so very sorry to hear of George’s passing. Our friendship began when George was stationed in Ituna, SK, where we curled together and our family enjoyed great times with George, Val, Mark and Kirk. Two years ago we were pleased to reconnect when George and Kim visited us in Yuma, AZ.
Our condolences to Kim, Mark, Kirk, Marci and families. May you all cherish your memories.

I met George & Val and their sons at my first posting in Saskatchewan. Their hospitality for a young member joining the Force was one of the outmost kindness; there always was an additional plate so to share a meal, and several laughs. George was a very organized supervisor, demanding prompt and thorough work, and, common sense. George never left an opportunity to take the helm, no matter on how tough the task was. He was a strong leader. Whenever a free time showed up on the work schedule, George would incite the members to walk the sidewalks, play a sport, with the members of our communities; for him, Community Policing meant and included being an active part of the community. Well done George. Sincere sympathies to Mark & Kirk, Kim & Marci, and to his family. Sylvain Fiset, Ottawa.

I grew up with George in Morris and became good friends. Then stayed connected as we each criss crossed Sask over our careers. We visited George and Val in Mesa as well. George never missed sending an email on my birthday. He set a good example and lived life to the fullest. Our sincere sympathies to Kim, Kirk and Mark. As always Al and Val Irvine
