December 13, 1987 - September 12, 2023
Kristopher Scott Taylor passed away on September 12, 2023. Kris was born in Loveland, Colorado on December 13, 1987, and graduated from Thompson Valley High School in 2006. He earned a business degree from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado in 2010 and spent many years working for Sierra Space in Louisville, Colorado. Kris loved hanging at the lake, fishing trips with his dad in Canada, baseball, football, golfing, live music, and time well spent with friends and family, especially his niece and nephew, Emeri and Jameson.
Kris is survived by his girlfriend, Ashley Bailey; parents, Lisa and Doug Lehman and Randy and Denise Taylor; sister Kasi (Shane), niece Emeri, and nephew Jameson Irwin; brothers Jordan (Cierra Greeley) Taylor and Justin, Kyle, and Tyler (Morgan) Lehman; and grandparents Mary Ann and Fred Taylor. He was preceded in death by grandparents Barbara and Jerry Bussinger. He is also survived by a large circle of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who will dearly miss him.
Kris dealt with Cystic Fibrosis his entire life, but you couldn't tell it by the smile on his face or his enjoyment of life. He was genuine, warm, and personable, and truly cared about people. Kris made an effort to reach out and connect to others, and everyone always enjoyed their conversations with him. His life was proof that the love you receive is equal to the love you give. He loved generously and he was greatly loved in return. He lived life to the fullest, and as an organ donor, he will continue to help others to live their lives to the fullest too.
Funeral services will be Tuesday, September 19th at Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Parish in Loveland (1730 West 12th Street) with Recitation of the Rosary at 10:00 am and a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 am. Inurnment will immediately follow at Loveland Burial Park and Lakeside Cemetery. There will be a reception back at the church following the service.
Donations in honor of Kris’s memory may be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (www.cff.org).
