Roger Berlin Taylor, 60, passed away at his home on March 31, 2021. He was born March 15, 1961 to Howard Roger and Shelva Jean (Foster) Taylor in Oak Hill, West Virginia. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a brother, Timothy Allen Taylor.
Roger spent his early years on a farm in West Virginia before moving to Colorado in 1973. He graduated from Doherty High School and Pikes Peak Community College. He was a manager at Pizza Hut for many years before deciding on a career change. He also worked as a mortgage broker before deciding to follow his love of working with his hands and starting his own lawn and gardening equipment repair service.
Roger loved the outdoors, music, photography, cooking, working with his hands, and tinkering with all things mechanical. When his children were young, he built them a playhouse in the backyard of their old house in Security that still stands today. When his boys got older, he enjoyed working on cars with them and helped his son, Zachary, build his racecar. He cherished the time he got to spend with his grandchildren.
He is survived by his sisters, Victoria Taylor and Becky Chandanais; his wife, Lila; children Skyfae LaVeau nee Misty Taylor, Lara Taylor, James (Deanna) Taylor, Amanda (Jeremey) Rollin, and Zachary (Sarah) Taylor, Sr.; and grandchildren Zachariah Taylor and Ezra Jonasen, Tobias, Isaac, and Arabella Rollin, and Cheyenne and Zachary Taylor, Jr.
A private memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, April 10, 2021.
