Obituary of Ian Graham Taylor

It is with overwhelming sadness and regret that we announce the passing of Ian Graham Taylor. Beloved son, father and friend to many; he will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered. 


An extraordinarily talented, dedicated, and inspiring blues musician, he was well known for his performances at the Kitchener Blues Festival and every bar, pub, and venue that wished to spread the joy and funk of the blues.


Ian is survived by his parents Heather and Danny, his brother Jason, his son Kaeden, his daughter Kaia, and his dog and best friend Brownie. 


Ian was an employee of the University of Waterloo for over 20 years, working there until his passing. Ian was an integral part of the culture and spirit on campus, having written songs for university use, and often performing live music for events on campus. Ian's last position at the university was with Central Stores, a job he was known to love doing and one where his presence was always valued. 


A memorial service will be held in the chapel of the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo on Sunday March 26, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. to honour this great man, his life, and the uncountable lives he touched.
