Barry Taylor and his wife Elaine created the Taylor Family Foundation in Livermore.
Barry passed away Saturday from a massive heart attack.
Plans are underway to celebrate his life and generosity.
The Taylor Family Foundation began when the Taylors held a fundraiser in 1990 in their backyard to support children with life-threatening illnesses.
Today, the foundation provides a free, once-in-a-lifetime camp experience for almost 3,000 children a year.
ABC7 has been a proud sponsor of the Taylor Family Foundation for more than 20 years.
Our Cheryl Jennings has shared stories about the Taylors and the camps every year.
