June 22, 1933 – Bredenbury, Saskatchewan
September 11, 2023 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Earl Taylor on September 11, 2023, at the age of 90 years old. Earl passed away peacefully at the Chinook Care Centre after a brief and courageous battle with bladder cancer and dementia.

Earl was an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching baseball, football, hockey, and curling. He also enjoyed bowling and golfing, but his favorite sport was baseball. Earl played ball his whole life and was a member of the Calgary Senior Men’s Slo-Pitch 55+ league until he was 80 years old. Earl and Marg spent many years travelling to ball tournaments, camping and socializing with the other players. Earl and Marg were great dancers and got up on the dance floor any chance they could. Earl will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.

Earl was predeceased by his wife of 56 years, Marg, and leaves behind his two daughters Sharlene and Shellie, as well as many friends and relatives.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Triwood Community Association, 2244 Chicoutimi Dr. NW, Calgary, AB, T2L 0W1, Telephone: 403-282-2677, or to the Canadian Cancer Society, 200 – 325 Manning Rd. N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 2P5 Telephone: (403) 205-3966, email
