Randy Thomas Taylor

Randy Thomas Taylor, 57, of Clifton, Idaho died peacefully in his home surrounded by his loving family and friends on September 27th 2017 after a courageous battle with brain cancer.

Randy was born in Marengo, Iowa on August 24, 1960.  He graduated from Belle Plaine High School in 1978.  He joined the LDS church at age 19 and served a mission to Sendai, Japan.  Randy enjoyed his service to the church - especially his favorite calling with the nursery children.

Randy was a kind, loving man and deeply cherished all of his friends and family. Randy worked hard all his life and built a successful business, Nuts for You, in Preston, Idaho.

Randy was a gifted musician who shared his talents with all around him. He especially enjoyed playing bass guitar in his classic rock band, 4th Ryte.

Randy will be missed dearly and his loss leaves a whole in our hearts. Randy leaves behind a loving family, and many, many friends. He is survived by his wife: Katrina; children: Megan (Ben) of Eielson, Alaska; Morgan (Adam) of Hurricane, UT; Hunter; Logan; Macy; grandchildren: Charles, Eva and James; mother: Imogene Taylor of Belle Plaine, Iowa; sister: Shelly (Scott) of Newhall, Iowa and her children Kaleb, Alicia, and Jacob; brother: Steve of Preston, Idaho and his children Amanda and Braylin.
