August 10, 1956 — June 16, 2022
Paul Taylor was born Aug. 10, 1956, in the Bronx, New York. He passed away June 16, 2022. He loved being a kid in New York. He had everything at his fingertips. He and his brother would jump on the subway and hit a baseball game at Yankee stadium or a hockey game, which he loved. The New York Rangers was his favorite.
He made his way out to Oak Harbor, Wash., after visiting his brother, Allen, in California. Paul became a shop owner of a local automotive shop here in Oak Harbor. He was loved by many and some just couldn’t understand his New York ways and attitude. He loved his huskies; Buzz was an amazing dog, well-loved by Paul. Next came Maggie, she was so sweet and also very loved. Last he had LuLu, and she gave Paul a run for his money. She was loved and spoiled rotten. Paul’s huskies spent their social time at the Clover Valley Dog Park running and playing. This is where Paul met some amazing people. He loved all his friends and loved to just sit and talk and get to know them. From the ones hanging out around B and B Auto to socializing at the dog park, and the many doctors and nurses, he took the time to get to know them.
The Clover Valley Dog Park was very important to Paul; he had quite a hand in getting it up and going. He was very proud of this accomplishment, and it brought him a tremendous amount of joy. Paul is very loved and missed.
We are having a gathering at the Clover Valley Dog Park to celebrate his life Sunday, Aug. 28, from 3 to 5 p.m. Come out and tell some of your stories about Paul Taylor.
