He was born on May 14, 1923 in Lakeview, Utah, a son of Frank R. and Zettella G. Taylor. He moved to Raymond when he was three years old where his father was employed by the Utah-Idaho Sugar Factory. He achieved his elementary and secondary education in Raymond. He married Margaret Wing on June 19, 1948 in the Cardston Alberta Temple. He graduated in medicine from the University of Alberta in 1948 at the age of 25. This was followed by an internship at Brooke General Hospital at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, TX. He also completed a residency in general surgery at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. He practiced medicine in Raymond for 43 years and served as Chief of Staff at the Raymond Municipal Hospital as well as serving on the Hospital Board for many years. His selfless dedication to the care and healing of the sick has touched many lives. As a member of Rotary Club, he participated in many projects that were of great benefit to the community. One of his most significant accomplishments was spearheading the building of the Raymond swimming pool. He was an active member of the L.D.S. Church serving in many leadership positions. His special love for eight years was for the Venturing Program and for the many Ventures who were members of his troop during that time. He was an advocate of physical fitness, and enjoyed running and participating in the Raymond Annual 10 Km race. He also loved to scuba dive.
