Major Brent Taylor Family Fund

$8,750 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 72 people in 1 month
Created November 3, 2018
Major Brent Taylor of North Ogden Utah was killed in Afghanistan this morning. He leaves behind his amazing wife, Jennie, and seven beautiful children ranging in age from one year to 13 years old. Please help us provide a cushion of financial stability for the family of a true Patriot, public servant, loving father and husband, and dear friend.

This campaign was started by high school friends of Brent from AZ who consider him to be one of our most treasured friends. Brent was known to my family personally as "Captain Courageous." Shortly after high school, he would come to our house often to play ROOK. One time when trying to take the bid, Brent said "I'm going to do something courageous here" as he bid a higher amount than he felt comfortable. From then on my parents affectionately called him Captain Courageous. Well, Brent indeed was Captain Courageous. He served his high school on student council as the student body president, his God as a missionary for two years in Brazil, his wife and Seven children, his community as a public servant and mayor of his city, and his country. He didnt serve his country once or twice, he served 4 times. This Captain Courageous became Major Courageous and gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. If anything, we do not want his family to sacrifice anything further so we hope this GoFundMe and any others for the family can provide security for them.

Brent we love you.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to this campaign of ours. We are grateful for your help and also happy to mention the other campaigns by friends in UT also raised very substantial amounts of over $550,000 for this family. Raising 7 children is not cheap and it is my opinion that their family has sacrificed all they should ever have to give for our country. I hope Jennie never has to work again unless she wants to. The funeral services were amazing and the community involvement inspiring as they rallied to show their love for this great man.

Thank you to everyone who has donated thus far. America lost one of her greatest citizens today. There just aren't many men in the world with the kind of conviction, bravery, integrity, and love of family, God and country as Brent Taylor. Those of us who went to high school with him know he joked about being President of the United States one day. Many of us still hoped to see that happen until today...
Most of Brent's Arizona friends know him from high school. I am collecting pictures and stories to put together for Brent's children so they can still get to know their amazing father. If you have any memories/pictures you would be willing to share, please email them to audraowens at gmail dot com.

There is also another GoFundMe for Brent run by a family friend in UT, that was started at almost the same time as this one. Either one will work. I was in contact with his wife Jennie earlier today and she expresses gratitude for the support and efforts on behalf of her family.

Sincerely,

Audra Owens

There is some concern that this page may be fraudulent. It most definitely is not but I am also happy to direct traffic to the campaign started by family friends in UT so keep the majority of the donations in the same place. That campaign is here:
