Christopher Edward “Chris” Taylor, 45 of Amarillo, returned to his heavenly home on August 11, 2018 after a valiant battle with a lifelong illness. His family will rest, knowing that God supported Chris in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace.
Chris was born to Charles and Edie Taylor on June 17, 1973 in Amarillo. Chris had a lifelong passion for fishing and vintage hot rods which began at a very young age. A passion that he shared with his children Christopher and Kayla as well. The children remember their dad for his love of restoring and racing his 66 Bel Air, going camping in Colorado, and drinking cherry icee’s.
Left to cherish his memory is his son Chris Taylor and wife McKenna, daughter Kayla Taylor, brothers, Bill Shepard and wife Tracy, Robert Shepard and wife Toni, and Brian Shepard and wife Laura.
He was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Edie Taylor and a brother Jeffery Taylor.
Chris will be dearly missed by his family and all those who love him and celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his creator.
