Jerome A. “Jerry” Taylor

Jerome A. “Jerry” Taylor 62 of Lombard IL. Beloved Husband of Pam nee Lellios. Loving father of Paige Taylor. Dear son of Helen and the late John Taylor. Fond brother of Joan (Tom) Lampo and Jeff (Jean) Taylor. Dear uncle and nephew of many.

Jerry fought a 55 year battle with diabetes. He never let the disease define or limit him. His fighting spirit and joy for life inspired all that knew and loved him. He was a “ big kid” who loved the Bears, Cubs and Bulls – win or lose. He also loved practical jokes, margheritas, parties (the bigger the better) and most of all his daughter Paige whom he would literally drop anything for. He was Mr. Mom, and loved life most when his yard was full of kids from the neighborhood running through sprinklers and sliding down slip and slides . He lived to watch Paige play volley ball, soccer, and anything else – he never missed a game or a practice unless he was in the hospital. Jerry was a guy you wanted to know – he made all of us better people.

In Lieu of flowers Memorials to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, www.jdrf.org appreciated.
