Taylor was born on July 30th, 1989 in Aberdeen, SD to Jeff and Patti (Webb) Mitchell.  As a child, Taylor was known for the mischievous twinkle in his eye, his enormous bear hugs, and love of anything sports related.  He graduated with Honors from Roncalli High School in Aberdeen, SD in 2008 and later earned his Bachelor of Science Business Marketing degree (with Honors) from St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, MN in 2012.  

Taylor began working for Marco upon college graduation, recently being promoted to IT Sales Manager where he was known for his natural leadership, authentic relationships, expertise, and immeasurable impact on the success of the business and, more importantly, those he worked with. 

 On August 26th, 2017, he married his soulmate and love of his life, Danielle (Scott) Mitchell.  Taylor had a passion for traveling and being with his friends and family.  He often combined this love by planning extraordinary trips around the world with his wife, coordinating time for family get-togethers, and celebrating milestones with friends in big ways. Taylor enjoyed time with his wife and their loyal dog, “Dale”, taking her on adventures and cuddling with her.  Taylor took pride in the homes that he and Dani owned, designing and constructing them with the help of his dad, father-in-law Robert, and many talented friends.  He was passionate about great food, searching out new eateries to take Dani to, along with finding recipes that they cooked together at home. Taylor was also a lover of music, sports, playing cards, and his family.  Taylor was known for his quick wit, infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit that impacted everyone he met.  He was a light to so many.

Taylor is survived by his wife, Dani; his parents, Jeff and Patti Mitchell; his sister, Jessica (Tom) Schneider; his paternal grandfather, James Ortmeier; his maternal grandmother, Dorthy Webb; his father-and mother-in-law, Robert and Debra (Anderson) Scott; his brothers-in-law: Michael (Jessica) Scott, Matthew (Brooke) Scott, Marc (Amanda) Scott, doting niece, Lucille Scott; adoring nephews: Kaden Schlenker, Colten Scott, and Benson and Joseph Schneider; along with many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
