June 28, 1945-Feb. 21, 2024

Lynn J. Taylor, 78, passed away peacefully Feb. 21, 2024, after battling pancreatic cancer.  Lynn was born June 28, 1945, in Payson, Utah, to Ned Tanner Taylor and Edna June Mortensen. Lynn married his high school sweetheart, Judy Kay Adams, on April 14, 1962. Together they raised four children.

Lynn was a master of many trades, much to the delight of his great-grandchildren. Some of his favorites included: baking for Albertsons and Safeway; operating heavy equipment and apprenticing as an electrician at Kennecott Copper Mine; volunteering in Midvale, Utah, as a firefighter, EMT and arson investigator; owning and operating Dougs Donuts on St. George Boulevard; managing sales for several wholesale bakery companies in the Seattle, Washington, area; driving bus for Washington County School District and washing cars for Avis at the old St. George airport. After retirement, he worked hard keeping an immaculate house and yard, raising animals, and assisting friends and family with his many talents.

Lynn was a master storyteller and entertained many with tales from his youth and various jobs. He was always learning and passing on his newfound knowledge. Lynn was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend who will be dearly missed.

Lynn is survived by his wife Judy Kay; his children Christina (Andrew) Sherman, Adam Taylor and Nathan Taylor; five grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, sister Nedra Hanks and brother Kenneth (Connie) Taylor.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his son Marcus J Taylor.

There will be a Celebration of Life at Lynn’s home on March 30, 2024 (time TBD).  Family and friends are invited to this informal open house to gather and share memories of Lynn.
