Kenyon J. Taylor

November 22, 1974 ~ October 3, 2019 (age 44)

Throughout his sickness, Kenyon never complained. If you’d ask him how he’s feeling, his reply would always be “I’m okay, and you”? Kenyon was always concerned about the other person. That’s just the type of guy he was. During this journey, Kenyon grew tired. On October 3rd, The Lord responded “Son, you have suffered long enough; come home”.

Kenyon’s life began 44 years ago in South Bend, Indiana, where he was born to Kim and Kenneth Taylor Sr. The oldest of five boys, Kenyon was a graduate of Washington High School. From a young age, Kenyon was a music lover and an avid fan of the Michigan Wolverines. Kenyon positively impacted the lives of everyone he encountered, and was a gentle and kind-hearted soul. Kenyon  never met a stranger, and will be most remembered for his fun-loving, likeable, warm, and caring personality.

Kenyon took pride and great joy in being a father to his children: Kenyon Jr., Kenlyjah, and Kenzarryous; and held his granddaughter, MacKenzie, close to his heart. Kenyon also leaves behind his partner in life, Tukemia Henry, whom he loved very much.

Precious memories of Kenyon will long be cherished by his grandmother, Barbara Lee; his parents Kim and Kenneth Sr.; his brothers: Keith (Sharita) Taylor, Kenneth Taylor Jr., Kerry Taylor, and Kyle Taylor; along with a host of nephews and one niece.

Kenyon is preceded in death by his grandparents Odell James and Tommie Lee; along with his paternal grandmother.
