Trent Donovan Taylor, 36, of Alamance County passed on to raise hell in the afterlife on September 11, 2022.
Despite his gruff, mountain-man-like exterior, his stubborn ways, and foul-mouthed articulation of words; he had a heart as pure as platinum. He was warm, funny, always welcoming, and would do absolutely anything for anyone even if it meant he had to go without. When it came to reliability, he was unmatched. For years, to and from work, he rode his bike. No matter the weather, he was there. Trent had one of those cackling laughs, if you know, you know. That laugh, though, would automatically send you into hysterics. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and had probably never met a critter he wouldn't consume. He was particularly fond of snapping turtles. It smelled just awful cooking and my home held onto that noxious stench for weeks, but he insisted that it was delicious. I just took his word for it. He was a lover of all things that went "bang", sharp stabby things, his Redd's Apple Ale, and his radio. The man had to have his tunes. Trent was truly a unique individual, forever true to himself and who he was. He lived his life unapologetically, wholly, and truly as himself. His presence will be missed by all that knew and loved him. I know you found your way back to the mountains that you so loved.
Trent was preceded in death by his Father, Peter Vincent Taylor; Grandparents, Donald Trent Taylor and Mary Widdifield Taylor. Surviving are his Mother, Sheila Wells Taylor; Step-dad, Scott Dean Williamson; Sister, Amber Christine Taylor; Grandparents, Robert Clyde Wells Jr., Carol Wilcox Wells, and Yonnie Reynolds; Aunts, Susan Ellingson, Sandra Wheeler, Patricia Greene, and Annette Wells Bower; Uncles, Kirk Taylor and Michael Bower and many, many cousins. He also had an adopted family that he dearly loved.
The family will hold a private celebration of life in Virginia in the spring where his ashes will be released into the Shenandoah River to follow the same path of his father's.
