Graham Taylor

The passing of Graham Taylor, a former Member of the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly and a former Cabinet Minister, is a time of sorrow for his family and friends. On the other hand, it is a time of fond reflection of a man who so sincerely served his province and his home community of Wolseley and surrounding area. He served in politics as he did in life with honour, loyalty and integrity.

Graham Taylor understood Saskatchewan people better than most. Life is a story and Graham was always interested in your stories and in sharing his own many stories. For me, there are only a few people in life that you always love to be around and Graham Taylor was one of those people.

Graham’s contribution to Saskatchewan politics is second to none, but more importantly he will be remembered for how he lived his life. His unwavering devotion to family and friends and his sincere compassion for Saskatchewan are the true traits of greatness. For this Graham Taylor will be affectionately remembered.

My condolences go out to his family and close friends. Graham, I will remember you. You were great!
