With heavy hearts and fond memories, we bid farewell to Jim Taylor, a man whose zest for life was matched only by his unwavering love for his family and friends. Jim passed away peacefully on April 12 at the age of 73, leaving behind a legacy of laughter, love, and compassion.

A proud lifetime resident of Riverview, N.B., he was the son of the late Milledge and Jean Taylor. Left to grieve are his wife of over 53 years, Joan (Haley) Taylor; children Stacy Taylor (Louis Roy) and Karrie Smith (Geoff Smith); cherished grandchildren Morgan Smith (Ethan Barter) and William Smith; and sister Sheryl (Taylor) Belliveau (Albert Belliveau); and several nieces and nephews.

Jim was a fighter in every sense of the word, approaching life's challenges with courage and determination. His spirit was indomitable, inspiring all who knew him to persevere in the face of adversity.

Beyond his fighting spirit, Jim had a passion for living life to the fullest. He found joy in the simple pleasures, whether it was enjoying a helping of fried clams from Chez Leo’s, teeing off on the golf course with friends or whipping up a delicious meal in the kitchen. His culinary creations were celebrated, and he took great pride in sharing his love for cooking with those around him.

But perhaps Jim's greatest gift was his ability to bring joy to others. His infectious laughter and quick wit could light up any room, leaving a trail of smiles in his wake. Whether it was a well-timed joke or a heartfelt story, Jim had a knack for lifting the spirits of those around him.

He was a loyal employee of the Canadian National Railway for 35 years. Jim also attended Highfield Baptist Church, where he was a proud member of the Kitchen Ministry and the Teller Board. His faith was a guiding force in his life. He found solace in the community of believers and was always eager to lend a helping hand to those in need. His generosity knew no bounds, and his acts of kindness touched the lives of many.

Though Jim may no longer walk among us, his memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. May we take comfort in the knowledge that he is now at peace, forever watching over us with that trademark twinkle in his eye.

In lieu of flowers, donations to SENB Hospice Albert House, Highfield Baptist Church or other charity of your choice would be appreciated. The family would like to thank the compassionate staff at Albert House for the exceptional care and support provided to Jim and his family in his final days – you are all angels on earth.

The family will be receiving relatives and friends at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd., Riverview (869-2007) on Tuesday from 6-8 PM with a service celebrating his life to take place from the funeral home on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 at 2:30 PM with Pastor Gary Barr presiding.

Rest in peace, dear Jim. You will be deeply missed, but never forgotten.

William James (Jim) Taylor
