Our beloved son and brother, Jacob Thomas Taylor sadly left us on Sunday, July 17, 2022. Jacob was born on May 4, 1995 to Robert and Angela (DiPrima) Taylor of Leominster, MA. Along with his parents, Jake leaves behind two brothers, Michael and Eric Taylor, Eric’s wife Elyssa, niece Kaylee, and beloved cat, Winston. He will also be very sadly missed by his two grandfathers, Santo DiPrima and Thomas Taylor, his aunts, uncles and cousins. Jake joins his grandmothers, Helen DiPrima and Judy Taylor in heaven.

Jake loved spending time golfing, listening to music, playing video games, watching comedians, and playing spike ball. He enjoyed being with his close friends Tyrone Twerefore, Ben Kanti, Paolo Mendia-DaRosa, and Tony Luoma and also deeply loved his cousins Anthony DiPrima, Zachary and Connor Keating. Jake attended St. Anna’s Elementary School and Leominster High School, where he met his very caring, life-long friends.

Jake was a funny, artistic, and kindhearted person. He was a great listener and showed a great deal of empathy to everyone around him. He loved to play jokes on his brothers and turn anything serious into something funny. He loved enjoying life. When Jake was little, he loved his Woody figurine from Toy Story, wearing hats and cowboy costumes. A few years later, he loved playing deck hockey, four-wheeling, going to the beach, family trips, swimming with family, and drawing his funny cartoons and characters. Jake also loved playing frisbee and video games, playing pool and rapping with his cousin Zack. An avid sports fan, he loved the Pats and Celtics and never missed a game.

Employed in the family business, Jake was a Cabinet Maker. He loved playing pranks on his brother and father throughout the day…drawing pictures on timecards, gluing Eric’s keys to the table and (behind his Dad’s back) bringing lightness to a busy day. Jake would often stop into his Mom’s office, to borrow her Chapstick and smile at her, because he knew she loved that.

Jake will forever be remembered for his laughter and his smile that lit up the world. His family, as well as his friends, are extremely heart broken, but will forever remember Jake’s loving soul. He will be greatly missed. Jake would never want anyone to be sad, and so his family and friends will always cherish the times spent and the great memories they made with Jake over the course of his short life.
