Arthur LeRoy Taylor (91) left this life Christmas Eve, December 24, 2021, at his home, due to causes incidental to advanced age. He got his dearest wish for Christmas, to be with his beloved wife, in heaven.
Art was a farmer who loved his land and animals and was blessed to care for them right up until the time of his death. He served in the army at the end of the Korean conflict and during the aftermath helping with reconstruction, where he was an engineer foreman helping with rebuilding. He was involved in the community, serving on the Duchesne city council, school board, and in the Farm Bureau, and was the post master in Duchesne for many years.
After retirement he was able to farm full time. He was involved in agricultural issues in the Uintah Basin, most especially water issues and served with the Conservancy District. One of the defining events in his life was when at age 78 he went to Tajikistan to assist farmers there with irrigation and water issues.
Art was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many leadership callings, the most recent of which was as the Duchesne Utah Stake patriarch. He had served in every auxiliary of the Church except Young Womens, including a brief stint as the Relief Society president while on his mission in New York state.
He is survived by his children, Karri (Bob) Hoopes, Duchesne; Brian Taylor, West Bountiful; Bruce (Gail) Taylor, Rexburg, Idaho; TeAnn Taylor, Roosevelt; Eileen (Trent) Potter, Duchesne; Gayleen Denney, Duchesne; Janae (Michael) Rowley, Duchesne; Robbie (Carrie) Taylor, Duchesne; 30 grandchildren, multiple great-grandchildren and his sister, Lola Sheffield, Orem.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, KaraLyn; two daughters, Mildred and JoyLynn; 2 granddaughters, and his parents, Frank and Ruby (Roberts) Taylor and siblings, Alice Lipina, Johnny Loyal Taylor, Floyd Taylor and Dorothy Robinson.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, December 30, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at the Duchesne Stake Center. Viewings will be held at the church on Wednesday evening from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. and Thursday from 9:30 - 10:45 a.m.
