In loving memory of Callum Taylor who sadly passed away on 7th April 2019
Callum leaves behind Mum (Laura) Dad (Neil) and little sister (Ava-Grace)
as well as Mamma’s (Sue and June) Grandad’s (Colin and Adrian) Aunties (Claire, Jess and Jordan), Uncle’s (Richard Lewis and Chris) and cousin’s (Bella and Jude) plus the rest of his extended family.
Callum was a very special and unique young man, with a heart of gold, he was funny, kind, helpful and caring, he was a bright and independent young man who showed great integrity and was never one to follow a crowd, nothing meant more to him than his family, who he was immensely protective and proud of.
Callum was a joy to be around and despite life’s obstacles he fought the battle of life hard, he was a wonderful son and big brother and no-one made him prouder than his little sister with whom he shared an incredible bond.
Although due to Callum’s good nature he was often exploited by his “so called friends” he managed to find true friendship in the months before his passing and was truly excepted for who he really was, for this I will be hugely thankful for eternity.
Callum attended the Island Project for around 3 years before his passing. The Island Project is a not for profit alternative education provider for young people who struggle in a typical classroom environment, Callum flourished here and particularly enjoyed working with animals in which he was a natural, he was studying for a Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care at the time of his passing, Callum loved his time here where he was treated with the upmost respect and could really be himself.

Rest in peace Callum, we will always love you, we miss you but can take some comfort in the fact you are now at peace, although losing you has obviously devastated me I love you enough to respect the fact you are where you wanted to and needed to be and no longer have to live a life of pain and difficulty, you were too good for this world son.
I love you son, I will try and be strong and carry on for your little sister as I know that is what you would want me to do, I will make sure your death will not be in vain and will, in the future make sure I help others in a similar situation as you were, like I know you would want me to, in tribute to yourself.
You will always be with us, I LOVE YOU
Fly high son your memory will live on.
