Tribute Wall for Marvin Reed Taylor

  1. Heather Eden says:

    I like to think that I was Marv’s favorite niece. 😉 When I was about eleven years old, I got to go from Denver to SLC with Grandma and him in their trailer. Marv was such a good host to me.  He would come home from work at lunch to make sure we were fed, he took me swimming, he made sure I had things to do on the weekends and introduced me to a friend my age so I would have something to do all day.  When he came home for lunch one of those days, he brought crab salad sandwiches from a deli. I had never had one before, but it tasted SO good to me.  I still remember how yummy it was.
    He was a good caretaker.  He was very patient and kind.  And my bet is that Grandma needed something on the other side and so Marv went to take care of it!!

  2. Paula says:

    I worked with Marv in South Salt Lake for many years. He was always kind, loved to laugh and gave great hugs. I will miss him!
