Obituary

James "Jim' Byron Taylor, age 70, passed from this life to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Thursday, February 22, 2018.

Jim was a loving and active husband, father and grandfather. He had a deep love for people which motivated his long career as educator and administrator in the Kalamazoo Public School. His passion for ministry and giving back prompted him to serve for many years as a camp dean for hundreds of special people and underprivileged youth. He delivered hundreds of the finest children's messages in his church and was known for always finding creative ways to raise finances for people in need. He leaves a rich legacy of changed lives for the better.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Dorothy Taylor.

Jim is survived by his wife, Sally; children; Jill and Randy TenBrink of Holland, and Erin and Corey Werth of Spring Lake; grandchildren, Nathan, Declan, Elizabeth, Kellen; brothers, Don Taylor, Joe Taylor; sister, Tammy Cornwell; brother-in-law, Scott Kohl, and many nieces and nephews.
