Army Major Brent Taylor was killed on his fourth deployment to Afghanistan in an apparent insider attack on November 3, 2018.
He enlisted with the Utah National Guard after the terror attacks of 9/11 and deployed to Iraq in 2006 and 2007, and to Afghanistan in 2012 and 2018, which would be his final deployment.
While not serving with the National Guard, he served his community as Mayor of North Ogden, chosen to be mayor in 2013 and re-elected in 2017.
Major Taylor left behind his wife Jennie and their seven children, Megan, Lincoln, Alex, Jacob, Ellie, Jonathan and Caroline.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation paid off the Taylor family mortgage in December 2018.
