George Fenton Taylor was born in Toronto, Ontario to parents who had emigrated to Canada from England a couple years previous. His middle name Fenton is said to be in honour of the doctor who delivered him, after his mother had several earlier unsuccessful pregnancies. During the depression he worked as a landscape gardener. He was working for Goodyear Rubber in Toronto when Polymer was built during the war, and he was relocated to Sarnia, Ontario to work there. He worked at Polymer from 1943 until his death in 1962. In Sarnia he coached basketball for St. Paul's United Church and was active at the YMCA as a swimming coach. Died suddenly of an aneurysm.
