Taylor, 74, who is survived by his wife, three daughters, three sons and six grandchildren, was known throughout the Bay Area and has been described as "caring, generous, gracious and genuine" by those posting condolences on Facebook.

The Taylor Family Foundation, co-founded by Taylor and his wife in 1990, provides various services for children living with
developmental disabilities and chronic illnesses throughout Northern California.
