Taylor Michael Whitney-Leigh, age 26, lost his life Thursday,August 10th in a car accident outside of Scio, Oregon. Taylor’s quick action and selfless concern for others prevented more tragedy from occurring. His passengers, although seriously injured, considered Taylor's actions as heroic……”he was brave and not scared through it all”

Taylor is survived by his parents Brad Leigh of Albany and Shantell Whitney of Salem, brother Kyle Whitney, sister Erienne Kollaer, girlfriend Haley Lawrence and his dog Steve-O. He is also survived by uncles; William Leigh of Vancouver, Marc Leigh of McMinnville and Michael Sutton of Surprise, Arizona and Grandparents.

He graduated from West Albany High School in 2009 and “lettered” in both football and track. Taylor was always looking for the next adventure, spending winters on the slopes snowboarding, and on the course golfing in the summer. With his headphones on, listening to everything from Led Zepplin to The Game he was always enjoying life.

A celebration of Taylor’s life will be at 11am, Wednesday, August 23rd at the Jefferson Baptist Church, 15002 Jefferson Hwy. 99E, Jefferson, Oregon.

Donations can be made to the Taylor Whitney Leigh Memorial Fund at Umpqua Bank.
