Obituary

Jacob Nathan Taylor returned to his Heavenly Father on Monday, April 10, 2023, following a long battle with addiction and substance abuse. He was welcomed to the other side of the veil by his grandfather, Terry Taylor; great-grandfather, Grant Hann; great-grandmother, Edna Hann; and countless family members that preceded Jacob in death that he had not met during his mortal life.

Jacob was born on May 13, 2002, in Fairbanks, Alaska. He was an energetic kid involved in multiple sports and other activities. As a young boy, Jacob could often be found playing in a dirt pile in the backyard his dad had built for him.

In 2012, Jacob moved with his family from Alaska to Spring Creek, NV. He graduated with the Spring Creek High School Class of 2020. While in high school, Jacob loved being part of the SCHS Wrestling program. During his time on the varsity team, Jacob helped bring home 3 State championship titles, placing individually both his Sophomore and Junior year.

Jacob loved the outdoors and would return to Alaska during the summers to go commercial fishing with his Grandpa Shawcroft. He also enjoyed hunting with his dad and spending time in the mountains.

Jacob is survived by his parents, Tom and Casey Taylor; siblings, Jordan (Mallory) Taylor, Hannah Taylor, and Jaxson Taylor; grandparents, Ellie Taylor, and Tom and Dixie Shawcroft; as well as 9 aunts, 8 uncles, and 35 cousins.

Jacob’s family was able to say their final goodbyes at a private viewing held on Sunday, April 16 at Burns Funeral Home in Elko, NV.
