Thomas George Taylor passed away Saturday, July 18th 2020, leaving this earth far too soon. Tom was a very passionate loving impatient man and he died doing exactly what he loved; high on life soaring through the beautiful Wyoming mountains on his Harley. Tom was born in Casper Wyoming on February 26th, 1963 to the late Sharon Rissler and Junior (Barb)Taylor of Shenandoah Iowa. He had six siblings Tammy, Wesley, Tim, Kris, Diane, and Billy.
He grew up on the streets of Evansville making many lifelong friends. He started his family at the young age of 17. He married Kenna Anderson in 1980. Together they raised three daughters Andria Mason, Jennifer Taylor, Tommi Taylor, and a beloved son and Toms best friend Nicholas Taylor, before divorcing in 2004.
A Wyoming native Tom loved being outdoors; fishing, floating the river, riding his Harley, or just sitting by a campfire brought him great joy. He always gave his all to be the best at the things he loved. He was an avid poker player winning several local tournaments here in Casper. He was also top of his industry within his career; having the opportunity to work side-by-side with his son for the last two years.
Nothing made him more proud than his family including his 8 Grandsons Jesse, Joey, Tyson, Tao, Tristen, Isaac, Nixon, and Asher and one granddaughter Katie that he affectionately referred to as sweetheart, and his bonus daughter Trish and her daughter Chloe.
His girlfriend Patti Burget spent many years by his side enjoying their motorcycles, their beautiful yard, many concerts and adventures together.
Tom was a firm believer that life is too f****ng short and he lived his life to the fullest. He will be greatly missed by all who were blessed enough to have him in their lives. He leaves behind many cousins, nieces, nephews, family, and great friends. He once wrote " I am blessed to have all my family and with my grandkids I will live forever. I now have everlasting life on earth." A celebration of life is scheduled Saturday July 25th from 1-4pm at the Eagles club in Casper Wyoming. In lieu of flowers donations in Toms name can be made to the #22Kill charity or #trump2020 campaign.
