Brenton C. Taylor
Brenton C. Taylor, Clark, 76, died Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA following a brief illness. Born and raised in Falmouth Foreside, Maine, he was the son of Clifford and Anne Taylor. He grew up assisting his parents in their popular Route 1 Pineland Restaurant in Falmouth, Maine. As a result, he was well known among his family, friends, and colleagues as the creator of a masterful recipe for Baked Stuffed Shrimp. Clark attended Falmouth, Maine schools and graduated from Babson College in Wellesley, MA in 1965. Following graduation, he started his professional career practicing public accounting in Boston and Chicago. When he moved to Sudbury, MA in 1979, he founded his successful accounting firm, B. Clark Taylor, CPA.. He was a keen business advisor. He particularly liked helping clients who were starting up new businesses and then watching them thrive. He enjoyed his work so much that retirement was never his goal. He was an avid sports participant and played baseball throughout his late teens. Clark also developed an interest in sailing. He enjoyed crewing with his friends and participated in the Monhegan Islands Races for many summers. In 1964, he helped skipper the Babson College sailing team to victory in the McMillan Cup Regatta, outpacing both Dartmouth and the U. S. Coast Guard. Clark had many interests including car and engine restoration and refurbishing antique wood stoves. He continued to play ball for many years as a catcher for the Players of Sudbury softball team. His connection to the Sudbury community continued throughout his tenure as Treasurer of the Sudbury, MA Water District. Highlights of every year were Clarks journeys to his hunting and fishing cabin,Tucker Branch, near Cherryfield, Maine. These trips were cherished rituals for more than 50 years with the latest trip occurring the week before Thanksgiving, 2016. He treasured these times with his son Brent, his grandson Brenton, his brother Marshall, his nephews Prescott and Cameron, and long-time friend, Nathan Brackett. The Tucker Branch resident beaver population was a source of much cabin banter tempered by a reluctant appreciation of the beavers persistent and remarkable engineering skills. He was devoted husband to his wife of 51 years, Jean Armstrong, and a devoted father to his son Brenton Taylor and his wife Taasha; his daughter, Jennifer Prokowiew and her husband David; and a loving grandfather to four grandchildren, Lily, Brenton, Chloe and Emma. He also leaves a brother, Marshall Taylor and his wife Debbie; eight nephews; a niece; and three cousins. Clark was a man who faithfully lived his values and always fulfilled his personal and professional commitments. He will be sincerely missed by all who knew and loved him. A memorial service will be held at 11:00AM, June 10, 2017, in the Foreside Community Church, 340 Foreside Road, Falmouth, Maine. A reception will follow in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.
