TAYLOR - Jody Leslie

Jody Leslie Taylor born March 29, 1973 was taken suddenly from his family, friends and co-workers on March 31, 2016 while he was doing the job he loved. He leaves behind his beautiful daughter Tristen Mary Joyce, Elizabeth the mother of Tristen, his parents Ron and Judy, his brother James, sister in law Catharina and niece Isabella. He is also survived by many dear Aunts, Uncles, cousins, family and friends. Jody was a gentle giant, a big man with a bigger heart. He touched so many lives. He was the power vocalist for the 90's hardcore act Strain who would go on to tour throughout Canada, the US and Europe. After Strain, he also fronted the band Kersey. Jody had a passion and innate talent with a camera. The images he was able to capture were artistic & breathtakingly beautiful. Jody loved the water, spending the summer on his boat with Tristen and his friends.


A celebration of his life will be held Saturday April 9th, 1:00 pm

at the Maple Ridge Baptist Church

22155 Lougheed Hwy, Maple Ridge, BC.
