Norman Edward Taylor
Ed Taylor lived his life in and around Denver, Colorado. He graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado, and served in the Army Air Corps, 1942 – 1946. His family was active in Clan Cameron and the Colorado St. Andrew Society. Through those connections he met SAMS, and jumped right in. Ed was part of a “good ol’ WWII boys” group in Post 100 that has included Dale Baird Sr., Earl Clark, Paul Dunlap, Paul Longrigg, John McDade, and Harlan Phillips.
Ed’s career spanned 33 years at the Bureau of Reclamation; he retired in 1984. Shepherded by son Ron, he and wife Delma visited Europe (and Scotland of course) three times; they visited all fifty states. He was a Boy Scout as a youth and continued as a Scout Leader; he was patriarch to three generations of Eagle Scouts. His engineering expertise contributed to hobbies of model railroads, model airplanes, cars, and home remodels. He was also a lifetime Mason. Ed and Delma’s children are son Ronald Taylor and daughter Cherlynn Taylor Berry. They have three grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. SAMS Post 100 is grateful for the time he spent with us, and is looking forward to hearing stories we may have missed, from his Cameron family.
