This fundraiser is to help Leon's family with funeral costs. Rest in love our beautiful friend.Auckland
The news of Leon's passing has shocked us all and this fundraiser is to help his family with the funeral costs and any other financial cost that they may have.
Leon is loved by so many of us. We knew him as The Basketball Yeti. The Yeti. Mr Leon Taylor. Our Leon.
He was a loving husband to the beautiful Kate, the woman he has loved and built a life with for 22 years. A kind son, brother, and uncle. A great friend, a brilliant artist, a passionate sport and film lover, a pet dad, and a truly remarkable man.
Leon was the definition of a person that could light up a whole room. You truly felt his presence there. He had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in the universe when he talked to you and listened to what you had to say. Whether you regularly saw him at basketball games or at the movies, he was always with ready with big, bear hugs and a gentle smile.
Leon's word for the year was passion and he lived his life with so much passion and curiosity and love. He had a lot of love for the world, for us, for We miss him already and wish we could have one last hug. The kind that's hard to let go of.
Let's be there for Taylor's like they have been there for us throughout all these years. Always ready to lend a helping hand, always with a smile on their faces, always full of love.
Jess Molina's involvement (page creator)
I'm Kate's best friend so Leon had no choice but to be best friends with me too. We called our group the making waves crew and that's exactly what Leon did - made waves and made us all feel so loved and supported.
Use of funds
The funds will be used to assist with the funeral cost and any leftover will be used to support Leon's family and help relieve them of any financial burden for the next little while. Funds will be paid to Kate Taylor's account directly.
