Taylor Family Foundation co-founder dies

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.
