Maj. Robert C. Taylor

Maj. Robert C. Taylor, a veteran of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, died in Mountain View on Dec. 26.

Born in California in 1966, he moved to Windsor in 1973, where he graduated from Windsor High School in 1984. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and went on to the Naval Academy, West Point, the Army Airborne, and was a Navy SCUBA diver and attended Naval flight officer's school. After earning his wings, he was sent on two deployments, became an instructor, and completed Top Gun (Advisory), his family said.

He graduated from Anapolis in 1991 and became a weapons systems officer. He logged 1,500 jet hours, 500 of those during wartime. He flew in the Afghanistan War and was deployed twice to Iraq, his family said.

He is survived by his mother Marcey (Taylor) Blanco of Loveland, Colo.; his father Bob Taylor of Littleton, Colo.; his children Redmayne and Dagen of Milford, Conn.; and his sisters Leslie Simpson of Conifer, Colo. and Nicole Brunet of Pensacola, Fla.
