Steven Lee Taylor, age 50, of Griffin, passed away on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at his home.
Mr. Taylor was born in Atlanta, Georgia on August 29, 1970. He is preceded in death by his father, Uno Taylor and his nephew, Travis Arnold. He was employed by Georgia Tech at CEISMC (Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing) since 2004, most recently as their Communications Manager. Steven was a creative person who enjoyed painting and creating sculptures with found and natural objects. He was in a few different bands in earlier years, the most recent being Rhinoctopus, an experimental electronic band with his wife Paige and close friend Gabe Hines. He was also a science and history buff, enjoying documentaries on World War II, the Civil War, astronomy, space travel, and physics. The Star Wars series was one of his favorites, and his t-shirt collection clearly evidenced that. Steven dearly loved animals, especially his dog Cosmo, cat Mazzy, and two pigs, Ham Solo and Chewbacon. Being outdoors in nature was always a meditative and spiritual experience for him. He was a generous soul who always wanted to take care of everyone else. His sense of humor was quirky and dry, and it made him happy to make those around him smile. He always made sure his family and friends knew he loved them.
