Talking with his father Jeffery K. Taylor, I don't know either of this men. But his father is sadden by the incident but very proud of his son being part of the CHP. Dr. Taylor is proud of his son because of the impact that he had on the people he serves. Officer Nathan Taylor was a people person and always put the safe of people before his own. I can tell by the stories Dr. Taylor shared with me in the 45 minutes we talked on the phone that Officer Taylor was a very good officer, a better man, excellent father and husband. I was told that he served around the city I lived in Compton, CA. Thank you sir for your service. You still touching lives though you no longer with us. Thank you dad for sharing your stories with me. I will pass it on.
