"He always wanted to give back and make the world a better place", Cox said in a telephone interview Saturday night.

"He approached everything and everyone with the idea that he would leave them better than he found them", said Jonathon Call, a North Ogden resident now deployed to Kuwait with the Utah National Guard. He often posted updates on Facebook of the work he was doing with the Afghan soldiers, the newspaper reported. Taylor, Burton said, was "rucked up, if you will, and moving out on foot when this occurred". "He is well-liked by everyone in North Ogden and everybody loves his family", he said.

A statement from the Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan said another USA service member was wounded in the attack.

Herbert noted that Taylor, who deployed to Afghanistan in January and had planned to resume mayoral duties in North Ogden once the stint ended early next year, has five brothers who also serve in the Utah National Guard.

In September, he celebrated from afar his 15th anniversary with his wife, Jennie Taylor. They two had known each other for several years.
