Robert Samuel Taylor went to be with his Savior, Jesus Christ, on Sunday February 10th 2019. Bobby “C,” as his family and close friends called him, had the heart of a giant. Bobby lived his life putting others first. He had a unique gift of seeing the value in others. Bobby could also name that tune in less notes than any other living human being. He knew who sang almost any song, and what year, month, day, and hour the song was released. The day John Lennon died, forget about it!
Bobby graduated from Chaparral High School in Las Vegas in 1976, and immediately went into the kitchen. His cooking wasn’t just a meal, it was an adventure, and yes, the eight egg omelets are true. However, it wasn’t just that one extra shrimp hidden under the French Fries that brought customers back, it was him! He is preceded by our mother Norma Benedetti Taylor, his wife Penny, step mother Joan, and sister-in-law Michelle. He is survived by his father Robert Taylor, step siblings Gary, Nancy, Cindy, and their families. He also leaves his brother, Russ and wife Rebecca, his nephew Tim and wife Jenna, niece Samantha, “Little Man” Dante, and his beloved dog Vixie. He would say “blood is thicker than water” and if you knew him, you already know he saw you as his blood.
