Obituary Overview

In Loving Memory

Taylor, Ian Thomas Gould

1931 - 2021

Peacefully at Providence Care Hospital on Friday, December 3, 2021.  Ian is survived by his  Daughters: Kita  Taylor-Hawkins (Chris) and  Margot Taylor.   His former wife Zena Taylor; his brother - Roger Cyril Taylor (England);  his grandchildren - Steven Green (Laura),  Ketsia Snider (Peter), Jeffrey Green (Melissa),   Peter Pritchard (Rhonda),  Roy Kennedy (Kristy) and his great grandchildren:  Keely Green, Dawson Green, Flynn Green, Micah Green, Emmett Pritchard, Coulton  Pritchard, Lily Kennedy; as well as his relatives in B.C. and in England.

Ian was born in Slough, England. He graduated from the University of London, UK in metallurgical engineering. He immigrated to Canada in 1955 and worked at Alcan as a research engineer for over 20 years. During this time he created two patents for aluminum alloys, one for military armor plate and the other for making heat-exchangers. He gave his heart and life to the Lord in 1974, moved to Toronto and became a founding member of 100 Huntley Street. After that he created his own publishing company and spent 3 years researching and writing "In The Minds of Men", a book exposing the theory of evolution. This took Ian on speaking engagements in almost every State of the US and provinces of Canada, then to Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, China, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore. He went on to become a board member and "The Voice" of a daily Christian radio program called Creation Moments from Minnesota. The program is currently distributed to over 1,300 radio stations in the US, and over a dozen across Canada and the UK.

Ian loved his family and he loved animals. He had a subtle sense of humour, and he could fix anything usually better than it was originally built. He was a true perfectionist. But most of all Ian loved the Lord and devoted his life to living for Him and to bringing others to the Lord. He truly was a "good and faithful servant".

We wish to thank all of the amazing staff at Providence Care for the genuine loving care he received while he was there. He truly never would have received better care anywhere else. 

In lieu of flowers please make donations to either "Creation Moments" or the Alzheimer's Society.

I first met Ian in the 1980's when he was presenting Creation seminars in Toronto. We hosted him in our home in Deep River, Ontario when he came to present seminars in Deep River and Pembroke (Ontario) in 1990. His ministry and fellowship were tremendous, as is his book "In the Minds of Men". I will look forward to reminiscing with him in glory (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). Mark Floyd, Deep River, Ontario

Kita and Margot - I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. He was a great, kind man and I have so many memories of him but the one that sticks out in my mind is of putting up a Christmas tree for him when he lived on Wellington Street. He was so happy about that little tree. He was a gentle soul and may he rest in peace. He is in God's hands now. You know without a doubt that he will watch over you all always. Hugs and all my love. Kelly
