Gone but Never Forgotten Raymond Steve Taylor; rancher, traveler, accomplished business man, and self-proclaimed ladies’ man, passed peacefully, December 7th 2020, surrounded by loved one’s at his daughters home in Buffalo Wyoming. He was born March 3rd 1944, to William (Bill) and Agnes Taylor of Kaycee Wyoming. Raymond (Ray) is preceded in death by his sister Hazel Music, brother’s Ernest Taylor, Billy (Bill) Taylor, Mother Agnes (Streeter), Father William Taylor, and grandparents Orange and Mamie Taylor.He is survived by his big brother David Taylor of (Kaycee,) twin sister Viola (Taylor) Roush of (Buffalo.) Children, “that he knew of” Daughters; Shelly Link of (Buffalo,) Diana Fiala of (Hot Springs SD,) Crystal Nielsen of (Buffalo,) Melody Larson of (Buffalo,) Kayla Taylor of (Buffalo,) and son Justin Taylor of (Kaycee.) As well as 24 grand/great grandchildren, and counting. He grew up 18 miles east of Kaycee, on the banks of the Powder River where two generations of his family lived, farmed, suffered and fought. Learning and honing longstanding family values of business and work ethic. He never wavered from a challenge or a chance to make an honest nickel. Devoting his life to the town and community of friends that he loved. Ray adored traveling. He took countless trips with his sisters, brother (David), friends and loved ones, all around the country and across the oceans. He had an amazing connection with the land and livestock and passed that knowledge and love of animals, fishing and hunting, on too his children and grandchildren. Ray had a way with plants and was known for his green thumb. You could almost always find him at his large garden and orchard where he spent countless hours every day nurturing his plants. Only pausing from the ENDLESS watering to get his “FIX,” as he called it, at the closest garage sale or Brannian action. He had an eye for a great deal and never…EVER… passed one up. A trait he inherited from his mother. He spent decades behind the bar at both of Kaycee’s local watering holes. Providing a much needed service to his local patrons, and making countless friends from all over the country, with his amazing stories and jokes, or a helping hand to a person in need. You could always rely on him to tell you the COLD HARD facts, especially at those moments when you didn’t want them…. But, he didn’t always spend his days behind the bar or in the field. Ray enjoyed his spirits and was notorious for having a good time and shutting the place down. A trait he reluctantly passed on to most of his children.Raymond was a teacher, a helping hand, a good laugh, a role model and a friend, but most of all he was an amazing son , brother, grandfather, great grandfather and DAD. We all love you so very much and you will live forever in memory, lessons and love. RIP Kane Funeral Home has been entrusted with local arrangements.
