Dr. Daniel Miles Taylor, D.D.S, M.S.D., passed away the 11th of November 2013 at his home surrounded by his loving wife and children. Dan was born in Long Beach, California on April 7, 1950 and was the oldest of four children belonging to Dr. Louis G. and Dorothy Taylor. As a young man, he excelled in sports, and academics, both of which would lead him to success in life.
He completed an undergraduate degree while becoming a two-time Academic All-American playing football for Brigham Young University. After marrying Cynthia Holbrook in Los Angeles, CA the 27th of April 1974, Dan completed the Dental program at the University of Southern California, followed by the Orthodontic program at the University of Washington.
Dan and his family settled near Snohomish, WA where he practiced orthodontics and involved himself in the community. He became president of the Washington State Society of Orthodontics, a member of the American Board of Orthodontics, a member of the Edward H. Angle Society of Orthodontists, and an adjunct professor of Orthodontics at the University of Washington.
Following his retirement, he and Cindy visited their children making enough memories to last a lifetime. He enjoyed snow skiing, stamp collecting, snorkeling off the beaches in Hawaii, but most of all spending time with his family.
A devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Dan served a two-year mission to Taiwan as a young man. He would go on to serve in many church service and leadership capacities, inviting people to believe in Jesus Christ.
All those who knew him will miss his patient, kind demeanor, quiet dignity, capacity for action, disciplined approach, and congenial sense of humor.
Daniel is survived by his wife Cynthia, his children; Andrew, Amy, Ann Marie, Christine, Michelle, and Juliana; his mother Dorothy, his siblings; Steven Larkin, Andrew, Suzanne, and David; and his twenty grandchildren.
