Phillip Wayne Taylor, passed away November 2, 2019 at the age of 72. He spent most of his life in New Mexico and considered himself a native. He loved his extended family, his grandchildren, his children and his wife (and his wife's baking and he was always quick to offer up a Jennie-made pie). He was proud of his work as a journeyman electrician. He was an avid black-powder hunter who was proud of his bull elk harvests. His passion was riding his Electra-Glide Harley and loved to regale others with the adventures he had with friends while carving the many mountain passes of the Rockies. He was a generous man and took pride in lending a helping hand to friends and family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard and Hazel Taylor. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Jennie; his children and their spouses: Zachary Taylor (Sarah), Jessica Rodriguez (Neil); grandchildren: Caleb Taylor, Cody Rodriguez, Owen Taylor, Nathan Taylor and Liadan Rodriguez; beloved siblings: Billie Wells, Leonard Ray Taylor, Betty Thorman, Jim Taylor, Debbie McLemore, Pamela Clauson and Valerie Rockwell; many wonderful nieces and nephews; and friends who were like brothers to him: Bernard Romero, Jay Rockwell and Marty Gutierrez. He was much loved and will be missed.
Memorial Service will be held Wednesday, November 6, 2019, 11:00 a.m. at FRENCH - Lomas.
