Taylor, Paul Elliot

April 19, 1989 ~ July 24, 2015

Beloved son of Stephen and Beverly Taylor, loyal brother to his sister Madison. Lost his fight with his delusions. Paul’s last few years were a struggle with the effects of schizophrenia.

Paul attended Pauline Haarer School and briefly NDSS. He finished his education at Shawnigan Lake and upon graduation joined the Royal Canadian Navy as an officer. He served proudly for five years and was just two courses short of graduation for an Arts Degree at the University of Victoria.

He was a gentle soul who always cared how everyone else was feeling. He was noble, honourable, a loyal friend and always fun to be around. We miss him so much. The world is a smaller place without him.

He leaves behind his loving and heartbroken parents Stephen and Beverly, sister Madison, a large extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and his best friends Kyle, Chase and Brad.
