Taylor J. Booth

We are very sad to announce the death of Taylor J. Booth of Lantzville, age 26, on the 27th Feb. 2013. He was struck by a vehicle while hitchhiking in Chad, Africa. He attended school at Seaview Elementary, Dover Bay Secondary, Brentwood College School, and University of Canberra, Australia, where he eventually completed a Bachelor of Resource and Environmental Science.

Taylor was a Cub Scout, soccer player, avid reader, hiker, camper, climber, rugby player, bike rider, environmentalist, hitchhiker (over 170,000 km.), traveler (over 70 countries), vegan, couchsurfer and lover of life! He had a high moral character, a stubborn will and a desire to save the world, one small step at a time.

Taylor is survived by his parents, Peter of Yellowpoint, Barbara of Lantzville, and his sister, Megan. He also leaves behind his Uncle Bruce and Aunt Janet, Aunt Ginny and Uncle Delbert, Uncle John and Aunt Charlene, Uncle Rod and Jackie, Grandpa Lee, and all the cousins and other relatives. He also leaves behind a global network of the hundreds (thousands?) of friends he met and touched around the world.

“Strangers are just friends you haven’t met.”


A celebration of his life will be held at the family home in Lantzville on the 11th May 2013, at 2:00 PM. No flowers, please, but consider a donation to an environmental charity of your choice, or better yet, join a group you can get passionate about.

“Even if the world would end tomorrow, I would still plant a tree TODAY!!!”
