Mark W. Taylor, 50, of Burlington, passed away Monday, December 9, 2013 at his home, after a short, but hard fought battle with cancer.

Born in Kenosha, April 24, 1963, he was the son of Wm. M. and Lynne D. (nee Olson) Taylor. He spent his early life in Platteville where he graduated from Platteville High School in 1981. He received his Bachelor of Science from UW Platteville and his Masters from Northern Illinois University.

On June 25, 1988, at St. Mary’s Church in Platteville, he was united in marriage to Lynn Klaas. Following marriage they made their home in Marion, IA, Sycamore, IL, Kansasville, WI and Clarkston, MI before moving to Burlington in 2007. He was a Director of Safety at Silgan Containers.

During high school he was a 5 sport athlete including being an all-state football player in his senior year. He loved sports and enjoyed coaching his children in baseball and basketball, in both Michigan and Burlington. He liked traveling, hiking, boating, golfing, biking and ran some ½ marathons in Las Vegas. His greatest love in life was his family and being involved with his children in their various sporting activities.

Mark is survived by his wife, Lynn; children, Tyrel N. Taylor, USAF in South Korea, Tell N. Taylor, Trent N. Taylor and Teagan N. Taylor, all of Burlington. He is further survived by his mother, Lynne of Platteville, his siblings, Lance (Theresa) Taylor of Verona, WI, Brad (Stefanie) Taylor of Vero Beach, FL, Beth (Dan) Reetz of Burlington and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends as well as his mother-in-law, Jeanette Klaas of Platteville.

He was preceded in death by his father in 2006, his grandparents and his father-in-law, Robert Klaas.

The family would like to thank Dr. Haider and Dr. Pannu and the team of Hospice nurses and staff that helped us during this difficult time.
