TAYLOR, Ryan Andrew It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Ryan Andrew Taylor, on the morning of Tuesday January 29th 2013, in Kingston, ON. A man of many talents and many laughs, Ryan was a warm burning light which sparked life into the hearts of all he met. Born to Robert Taylor and Bernadette (Brunelle), June 27, 1978, Ryan was always taught to push the boundaries of life and to listen to his heart no matter what obstacles he faced. With the love and encouragement of his family and friends, Ryan accomplished more than can be written in words. He was a focused student, successfully studying at both Queen’s University (2000-2004) and St. Lawrence College (2010-2013). He achieved over 30+ awards in both his studies and social activism including the Governor General Caring Canadian Award and the Queen’s Tricolour Award. He was an aspiring business man, successfully managing and hosting the SIFE Kingston 2012 World Business Forum and doing extensive work for numerous charities including the March of Dimes and the Alzheimer’s Society. He was a culinary guru, building 20+ pound cake castles, perfecting the art of Christmas turkey cooking and was an expert judge on the different qualities of crushed ice. He loved life and behind every hobby or success was a man surrounded by family and friends who loved and supported him. He will be deeply missed and forever cherished in our hearts. He is survived by his wife and “love of his life”, Sara McHattie, parents; Robert Taylor and Bernadette (Brunelle); siblings John, Robert and Kelly Taylor, nephews; A.J., Ryan, Miles, Shane and Robert Jr., nieces; Sarah and Patsy, mother-in-law; Leslie McHattie, sister-in-law; Laura McHattie and countless friends, extended family and attendants. A Celebration of Ryan’s Life was held in a visitation at the James Reid Funeral Home, Kingston on February, and a service in the chapel on February 2, 2013. For those who wish, donations in Ryan’s memory may be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
