Editor's note: Here's an email message I got from neighbor, Deb. It is related to: .
Ben lived life with passion. He spent all his time with beloved wife Pam and his prized daughters, Brooke 15 and Ashley 11. Recently they added another member to the family, a shiny black high-energy pup named Allie. You would see the family out in the front yard reinforcing obedience training every evening.
Ben would say it was like raising another kid but it was plain to see he enjoyed every minute. He made a nice home for his family. They were always his focus. Ben and Pam intricately planned the pool and hot tub in the backyard for all the family to enjoy and designed & crafted a large full service barbeque for their many outdoor gatherings. In the summer you could hear them splashing around till the late hours! The family also loved to camp and went often in their grand “toybox."
Ben filled it with their bicycles, dirt bikes and all the creature comforts you ever dreamed of. They went for short runs to the local desert and on long runs lasting a month either meeting up with camping friends or family members but always going in style! As his neighbor, we eagerly anticipated their return home to hear about the trip! The small community of neighbors where he lived became a close-knit bunch of friends, young and old. You would find Ben out in the street chatting with folks sometimes 2 or 3 cars at a time!
He was an awesome man, so friendly, kind and fun, everybody loved him. If a neighbor needed a helping hand Ben came with two. He was genuine and gave of himself always lending a hand to someone. His large group of friends was spoken of in high regard but his pride and joy were his girls, Pam, Brooke and Ashley.
He was a loving husband and a stellar dad. He was a sincere and compassionate man, a model human being. His handsome smile and happy spirit will forever be in our memories. G-d Bless you Ben Taylor!
