Obituary

Christopher Michael Taylor of Springville, Utah, died December 31, 2020 in Lehi, Utah, at the age of 32.
The oldest of four children, Chris was born in Anaheim, California, to William “Bill” and Carin Taylor on
November 16, 1988 and was raised in a loving home in Chino, California. He spent years playing soccer
and basketball, boogie boarding at the beach, and brainstorming ways to make amusement parks more
efficient. Hard working and driven, he graduated as Salutatorian from Chino High School and earned his
Eagle Scout award. Chris got from his family a love of travel and adventure, and they traveled together to
England, France, Italy, Belize, Canada, New Zealand, and throughout the United States.

Chris also loved all things Disney: the parks, the movies, the magic, the trivia. His family always held
annual passes and would visit the parks for family night, in all seasons, and even in the middle of the
school day after a trip to the dentist. One of the highlights of his life was a weeklong adventure to Disney
World, planned with his best friend and brother, David. Further, for two years, Chris lived his dream as a
cast member in California. He shared his Disney expertise with extended family and later his wife,
guiding them through the parks with an insider’s knowledge.

Faith was very important to Chris. Always active in the Gospel, Chris served a mission for the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Romania Bucharest Mission and developed a lasting love of the
Romanian language, culture, and people. In later life, he put his heart into sharing the Gospel with the
primary children he taught.

Chris loved children, and they loved him. Primary lessons received his full attention, and he spent three
years teaching Special Education Math to kids at American Leadership Academy. He took great joy in
playing with all children, whether cousins, nieces, nephews, or the children of his friends. No one could
help but smile at his amazing imagination and silly games.

Chris attended Brigham Young University (BYU), where he received a bachelor’s degree in Political
Science and used the skills he learned there to work on several political campaigns.

While attending BYU, Chris met the love of his life, Sarah Walker, in November 2015 on the dating app
Tinder, which was a constant source of laughter in their relationship. Chris loved to make Sarah smile and
laugh with funny faces and goofy poems. After nearly a year and a half of courtship, they were sealed for
time and all eternity in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple on April 7, 2017.

Chris and Sarah lived in Springville, Utah. They loved taking walks together, building things in
Minecraft, and playing board games. Spending a lot of time with their many friends was an important part
of their daily life—sharing meals, playtime with kids, and even more board games. Their love for each
other glowed and was evident to those around them.

Although he hid his anguish well, Chris suffered a severe and deep depression. He received treatment and,
in the weeks before his death, showed improvement and new healing. After a long-fought battle, Chris
tragically died by suicide on New Year’s Eve.

We will forever remember Chris as a loving husband, devoted son and brother, and cherished friend. His smile softened hearts and brought out the child in all of us. He fiercely loved his family and friends, and we will love and miss him eternally. We look forward to the day when we are reunited.

He is survived by his wife, Sarah Walker; three siblings: David Taylor, Lauren (Juan) Taylor Mendez, and Anne Taylor; his parents, William and Carin Taylor; and grandparents: Claudius and Amelia Taylor and William Charles and Carole Carr.

A public viewing will be held from 6:00-8:00 pm, Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at the Spring Creek Mortuary, 737 N Main St in Springville, Utah. Private funeral services will be held at 11:00 am Thursday, January 7, 2021 at the Spring Creek 6th Ward Chapel, 860 E 200 N Springville, Utah. Burial, Provo City Cemetery.

We deeply mourn the passing of Christopher. We have special memories of him. He is our oldest grandson and our second oldest grandchild, with over thirty younger cousins! What a delight it has been to see him entertaining and playing with these cousins, particularly those who were almost a generation younger. These little children really love their much bigger, “really fun” cousin who took the time to play with them at family get-togethers--and it was clear that the feeling was mutual.
Another strong and beautiful memory we have of Chris is the joy that was evident when he introduced us to Sarah and then of the love we could see growing between them during their courtship and life together. With the Mt. Timpanogos Temple up the hill as a background, we were delighted to cohost the outdoor wedding luncheon in their honor in the little park and gazebo near our home at Stone Hollow in American Fork. What cherished memories we have of this tall, handsome young man and his lovely, joyous bride enjoying these early happy moments of their married life together! We love you!
