Lester was born the fourth child to Lewis Jean and Ruth Ann Taylor (Moffat) on November 28, 1955 in Rexburg. Lester spent his childhood between school in Rexburg and on the family sheep and cattle ranch in Hamer, ID. By the time Lester was a teen he started attending West Jefferson High School and was living at the ranch full-time. When Lester was a senior in high school, his family moved to Hammett and operated the Taylor Dairy. Lester loved the warmer weather here in the Magic Valley and never left. Along with working at the family dairy he started working at Sailor Creek Farms. Once the dairy was sold Lester stayed in the area and continued to farm and ranch working for I.C.T. in Glenns Ferry for a number of years before going back to his second family at Double Anchor Ranches. In what free time he did have, he enjoyed his small farm raising sheep and goats, as well as any other critters that were brought home. He also enjoyed welding art, hunting, fishing and camping with his family. Lester is remembered as a good, hardworking man with an unmatched work ethic being a down to earth genuine person who would do anything to provide and care for his family. His quick wit and dry humor will be missed by all.
Lester is preceded in death by both of his parents, brother Steve Taylor and sister Collean Hutchison.
Lester is survived by his wife Amy of 33 years, daughter Sarah Huskinson (Seth), sister Jean McGarry, granddaughters Taylor and Riley as well as many nieces and nephews.
