Noah Elliot Taylor


Noah Elliot Taylor born in Medina on September 16, 2016, passed away peacefully at his home Wednesday, January 16, 2019. He was a little boy full of energy who packed a plentiful lifetime of curious adventures into his two short years with his family on Earth.

There was no question who had arrived when Noah entered a room. His vitality and curiosity drove countless quests for exploration, even when faced with the the hurdles of his parents' baby-proofing efforts, known sweetly by those who loved him as "Noah-proofing." His inventive ways, silly gestures and sincere love made everyone around him smile constantly with joy. We will forever be grateful to have been blessed with his animated spirit.

He was particularly passionate for trains, puzzles, coloring, Spider-Man, camping and babies, especially his baby sister, Cece. He enjoyed riding bikes with his dad, dance parties with his mom, vacuuming, mowing the lawn, roaring like a dinosaur, and helping his dad build and repair things with his own tools.

Noah is survived by his loving and devoted parents, Dan and Catie; sister, Cecilia; doting grandparents, Brenda Burd, Duane Taylor, Darrell and Carolyn Waite, Raelene Jodway; great-grandmother, Aldine Taylor; great-grandfather, Ralph Waite; great-grandparents, Richard and Charlene Jodway; loving uncles and aunts, David (Sarah) Taylor, Nathan (Christie) Taylor, Vincent Taylor, Andrew (Allison) Waite, Brandon (Vanessa) Waite and Travis Carpenter; many cousins, and a large community of family and friends who will miss his energy and enthusiasm for life every day.

Noah was preceded in death by his great-grandmother, Helen Waite; great-grandparents, William and Bettie Burd and great-grandfather, Ray Taylor.

Noah left his jubilant mark on this world and will forever live on in the hearts of all who knew him.

Family will receive friends Monday, January 21, 2019 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 P.M. at The Waite & Son Funeral Homes, Medina Chapel, 765 N. Court St., Medina. A Celebration of Noah's life will be Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 11 A.M. at the funeral home. Noah will be laid to rest privately at Spring Grove Cemetery, Medina.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in his name to the following organizations: Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad; Special project in Noah's memory for the Medina County District Library or Medina County Park District.
