Ricky was born March 21, 1948 in Quanah, Texas, to J.O. and Leona Taylor.  He died October 29, 2019.

On August 17, 1996, Rick married Rebecca Torres.  Rick grew up in Powers, Oregon on a ranch.  After graduation he attended SWOCC for a while then entered the National Guard.  He joined the Oregon State Police in Reedsport for a few years.  Then he bought a dairy farm out of Myrtle Point and turned to logging.  He worked for BPS Logging and then started cutting trees.  He was a timber faller from that time on mostly under “Rick & Henry Cutting Contractors”.  These two had a very special relationship.  Rick had one of the highest work ethics possible.

Rick will be remembered by anyone who knew him for his honesty, loyalty, moral beliefs and his gardening.  He was a very private man but loved and felt deeply.  He was devoted to his family and a wonderful provider.  His family was his life.  He was loved dearly.

He is survived by his wife Rebecca, his mother Leona Taylor of Powers;  sisters Janice and husband Dick Vigue of North Bend,  Shirley and husband Nicky Stallard of Powers; sons, Rick Taylor and wife Tawnya of Buffalo, TX, Jason Taylor and wife Cindy of Round Rock, TX and Michael Taylor and wife Sarah of San Diego, CA; Step-son Jerald Wadsworth of Coquille;  grandchildren Seth and wife Katie, Kysa, Jena, Myla, Levi, Brooke, Lucas, Mikey, Alyssa, Matthew and Evelyn; great grandchildren Pera and Peli and numerous nieces and nephews.
