NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —
With deepest sorrow, we announce that David Joseph Taylor, age 27 our most beloved son, brother, family member and friend passed suddenly on Thursday, September 9th 2021 while in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
David will be missed everyday by his Mother, Lisa E. Jowett, his two Sisters Christine E Tower and Elizabeth Piantoni, his Step Mother Mary Taylor, his loving Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and many friends. He was predeceased by his father David James Taylor.
David was born on November 19th 1993 in North Adams, Massachusetts. David was a caring, funny, smart young man with the potential for greatness. David was an avid member of the YMCA and it was a huge part of his life. He loved his family, working with computers and listening to music. He was also very proud to be a Scorpio and enjoyed his tattoos. This was all cut short when a 7 year battle with drug addiction ended his life too soon.
Substance abuse is not something to be ashamed of or hidden. It is a disease that has to be brought out into the light and fought by everyone.
David wasn't just an addict; he was a person with an addiction, a sickness, a disease. We remember David, not for being an addict, but for the sweet, kind, and funny person that he was.
Many people believe that addiction is a moral problem and that people with substance use disorders choose to continue using drugs. This stigma creates shame, guilt and fear, which prevent millions of people from getting the treatment they need to recover.
We all thank you for your condolences and prayers and ask that you continue to pray for David and family.
Graveside service will be on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 1 PM at Southview Cemetery, North Adams, MA. The Flynn & Dagnoli Funeral Home, Central Chapels, 74 Marshall St. North Adams, MA are in care of arrangements. To add to the Book of Memories, please visit www.flynndagnolifuneralhomes.com.
