Gordon Lester TAYLOR

Gordon Lester Taylor passed away on April 15, 2008 at Chilliwack General Hospital at the age 77 years. He was born March 8, 1931 in Rosetown, Saskatchewan, but lived most of his life in Chilliwack BC.

Les was a carpenter for many years but his passion was sitting behind the wheel of a gravel truck.

Survived by a very special sister-in-law Audrey and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his mother and father, sister Eunice, brother Jim, and special friend Marj.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, May 3, 2008 at 3:00 p.m. from the Tea Room at Henderson’s Funeral Home.

A very special thank you to the wonderful staff at the Chilliwack ICU.
