R.I.P., Graham Taylor

graham-haliburton-ridgeGraham was one of the good guys from my days in ad agencies. I worked with him for quite a few years, which is unusual in that high turnover business. I could count on him. Later, after the advertising days, we remained friends, Danica and I keeping in touch with him and Marguerite and enjoying stays with them at their place in Haliburton.
Gillian is right, in her words below. He was a kind man with a good sense of humour. We’ll miss him.

Graham Taylor

(Resident of Haliburton, Ontario)

Graham Taylor passed away suddenly on the morning of Sunday, May 4th at the age of 71. He is survived by his wife Marguerite and two daughters GIllian and Gemma. Although Graham lived happily in Canada for the last 50 years, he was always proud to have been born and raised in Bradford, Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. For the most part of his adult career, he played an integral role in various advertising agencies in Toronto. Always creative and innovative, he changed his focus to building and renovating homes. His most prized masterpiece was the home he built for himself and Marguerite in Haliburton. Graham was a kind man that always brought humour to all situations. He was an English luxury car enthusiast and was always a huge Beatles fan. He will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.

  1. That picture in the forest is totally appropriate. Graham would have loved it. Great choice.
