Beloved son of Katherine Cook Taylor and the late Robert Campbell Taylor joined his father and loved ones on January 29, 1999.

All those who knew Michael loved him. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.Michael was born in Hollywood, California on February 24, 1959. A year later his family moved to Provo, Utah. He attended Miss Wendy's and BYU preschool, Wasatch Grade School, Farrer Junior High, and Provo High School. At age, sixteen, he moved to Salt Lake where he lived and took care of his wonderful Nana, Bessie Taylor. While there he attended East and Skyline High Schools.

Michael had the gift of language. He studied German and Spanish attending an exchange student program in Mexico. For 34 years his father directed and developed the BYU Travel Study Department. Thus, the "world truly became Michael's Campus." With his family he traveled extensively to the major cities of the world.

Michael loved music and was blessed with a tender melodic voice. Michael and his father sang duets together at Carthage, Ephesus, and throughout the Holy Land. During his freshman year at Provo High he had the lead in the musical, Brigadoon. He danced with the Coleen Collins Smith performers. He also sang with the Madrigals and A capella choirs at all three high schools.

He worked as a manager for 7-11. He worked as a manager for Denny's for twelve years.

His mother, Katherine Cook Taylor, his brother, Mark Spencer (Marsha) Taylor, his sister, Michele Juliet Taylor (Enoch) Robey; and his beloved friend, Mildred Gardner, will miss Michael. They send their love and blessings with him as he extends his travels beyond this world into the eternity's.
