438 V O L . 7 5 P A R T 3 M A Y 2 0 1 7 THE ADVOCATE Having transformed their Richmond bungalow as much as possible, the Taylors looked for a new project and decided in 2014 to leave Richmond for Vancouver, buying property in the Kerrisdale area and planning their dream retirement home (complete with elevator, Lance always being one to plan ahead). In the summer of 2015, in the midst of the construction of their new home, Lance found himself tired and listless and went for a check-up. He was diagnosed with colon cancer. It had already metastasized. Charmaine and he fought it hard for the next year, giving all they had to his recovery. But even with his indomitable spirit, Lance was not able to overcome this obstacle. They were able to finish the house and move in. He died quietly on a summer day, surrounded by his wife, children and siblings. Never one for ceremony, he had declared that there was to be no funeral or memorial service. But family and friends gathered in the fall at the new Taylor home for a recollection and celebration of his extraordinary life. He was, as Genevieve says, “an iron will in a gentle soul.” Lance, old son, you are sorely missed.
