                Scott Eugene Taylor, Sr. age 52, of Menahga, MN formerly of Little Falls, MN peacefully but unexpectedly entered the glory of Heaven on Sunday morning, January 27, 2019.

                Scott was born on June 25, 1966 in Little Falls, MN to William and Betty (Beto) Taylor. He attended public elementary, middle and high school in Little Falls.  As a young man, Scott ventured out to Oregon, where he lived with his brother, Daniel and his wife, Patty.  He returned back to the Little Falls area where he worked as a self-employed automotive and small engine technician.  He was blessed with two children: Samantha and Johnathan from his first marriage.  He was united in marriage to Patti Pederson and their union was blessed with a son, Scott Jr., along with Patti’s four children: Jessica, Melissa, Ashley and Christopher. In February of 2012, Scott’s life was fulfilled when he met and fell in love with Tina Marie Andreoff of Menahga and they were subsequently united in marriage.  Scott’s life was further blessed with the relationships he enjoyed with Tina’s six children: Eddie, Elizabeth, Michael, Shantal, Emily and Tabitha.  They made their home in the Menahga area where Scott continued using his talents on all things mechanical.  He especially enjoyed teaming up with his father-in-law, Bob or his brother, Jim on bigger projects.  Scott loved living in the beautiful lake country of Northern Minnesota where he enjoyed both fishing and hunting with his family whenever time allowed.  Above all, Scott will be remembered as a faithful and loving husband, father and grandfather who devoted his entire life to his family.

                He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Tina Marie of Menahga, his children: Samantha Taylor, Johnathan Taylor and Scott (Krista) Eugene Taylor Jr., all of Little Falls, MN, Jessica (Doug) Sand of Wilmington, NC, Melissa Mitchell of Mason City, IA, Ashley (Ryan) Phelps and  Christopher Phelps of Little Falls, MN, Eddie (Nikki) Andreoff of Montrose, MN, Elizabeth (Tyler) Wilmes of Menahga, MN, Michael Andreoff of Park Rapids, MN, Shantal (Aaron) Crowell, Emily (John) Hart, and Tabitha Andreoff all of Menahga; many grandchildren; his seven siblings: Daniel (Patty) Kay of Oregon, Charles (Bobbi) Kay of St. Cloud, Donna (Walter) Ewertson of Long Prairie, MN, Pam (Kevin) King of Staples, MN, David (Karen) Taylor of St. Cloud, Edward Taylor and Jim (Crystal) Taylor of Little Falls as well as Tim Taylor of Pierz, MN; three step-brothers: Darrel, Scott and Jeff and step-sister, Sherri; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
