Taylor Family Foundation co-founder dies
A Bay Area man who dedicated his life to helping sick children is being remembered for his kindness and generous spirit.
Barry Taylor and his wife Elaine created the Taylor Family Foundation in Livermore.
Barry passed away Saturday from a massive heart attack.
Plans are underway to celebrate his life and generosity.
The Taylor Family Foundation began when the Taylors held a fundraiser in 1990 in their backyard to support children with life-threatening illnesses.
Today, the foundation provides a free, once-in-a-lifetime camp experience for almost 3,000 children a year.
ABC7 has been a proud sponsor of the Taylor Family Foundation for more than 20 years.
Our Cheryl Jennings has shared stories about the Taylors and the camps every year.
