Listen to the Obituary
Kenneth Lynn Taylor, of Somerset, Ky., was born on December 11, 1960 and
he departed this life on February 2, 2017 at the age of 56.
Kenny loved life. There wasn’t a day you couldn’t find him in his garden or
his garage, and he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren as much as
possible. Kenny, known as “Mr. Nice Guy,” never met a stranger. He always
helped everyone he could, whenever he could. He loved to put together
go-carts and lawnmowers for all of the “kids” (his daughters,
grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and children who were like his own) and
loved to watch them ride on his inventions. He also loved to hunt for
turkeys and deer, and when he passed, he was looking forward to reuniting
and hunting again with his buddies: Bo, Travis and Tony.
Kenny is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Donna Taylor; his two
daughters, Amber Taylor (and Chris Patton) and Kayla Taylor (and Jared
Rowe); his parents, Ruby Jean and Charles Taylor; his brothers, Charlie
(and Terri) Taylor, James (and Shelly) Taylor, and Kevin (and Alice)
Taylor; his beloved grandchildren, to whom he loved to tell stories and
teach his passions, Jasper and Kendra, and Hunter; many nieces and
nephews; and a special friend, Randy Estep.
Kenny leaves behind many family members and friends who have stories upon
stories about their time with him.
