Ronald Carey Taylor
January 7 1955 - June 21, 2020
Ronald Carey Taylor, passed away peacefully in his home in Salem, Utah, on Sunday June 21,
2020. It was appropriate that he passed on Father’s Day as his favorite roles in life were that of
husband, father, and grandfather. Ron was born on January 7, 1955 in Jerome Idaho to Earl
Laverne Taylor and Lois Jean Davis.

In 1957, his parents moved to Salem, Utah and it became a permanent, beloved home to Ron.
He graduated from Spanish Fork HIgh School in 1973. Upon graduation he received an
apprenticeship in welding and later became a union welder with the Plumber and Piperfitters
local 140. He mastered the trade and owned his own welding rig. He continued this profession
until his health no longer permitted it. Ron ran a cattle ranch for several years in Daniel,
Wyoming. Ron also owned and operated Deserts Edge Outfitting. Ron loved nature and
especially the mountains. He was an avid hunter and was grateful for the privilege he had to
hunt in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alaska. Ron loved to tell
stories from his many life experiences. He loved adventure in the mountains on a horse. The
last day of his life was spent with his favorite people - his family gathered at Panguitch Lake in
his favorite place, the Mount Dutton Range.

Ron loved people. Once you became his friend, you were a friend for life. Ron held a special
place in his heart for children and babies. His favorite thing was tight squeezes around his neck
from his grandchildren. (He had a tendency to think all children belonged to him).

Ron married GaNene Carson on December 6, 2002. They were sealed in the Manti Temple on
September 17, 2009. This was a turning point in Ron’s life. He learned to love Jesus Christ and
His Gospel and loved being a student of truth. His favorite calling was working at the Payson
Temple in the Baptistry.

Anyone who knew Ron saw a man who faithfully endured to the end. He was patient in
long-suffering. He was tender and sweet and full of gratitude for any kindness given him. His
rough edges truly became polished with the challenges of life. He loved deeply and was deeply

Ron is survived by his wife GaNene, his children Birch W. Taylor, Josh and (Heather) Eardley,
Desi Workman, Slade B. (Christina) Taylor, Sage Ronald Taylor, Justin and (Camille) Jensen,
Michelle Villar, (Preston) and Jennica Hicks, Colton and (Elise) Jensen, 30 grandchildren, and 1
great grandchild, and his siblings Kenny and (Karen) Taylor, Pam and (Pete) Peterson, Trent
and (Karen) Taylor, Todd and (Wendy) Taylor.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents and granddaughter Taisley Taylor and grandson
Wade Ron Taylor.
