Isaiah Christian Taggart, 15, Monroe, passed away May 16, 2023, at his home. He was born Dec. 28, 2007, in Salt Lake City, the son of Amy Marie Taggart.

Isaiah loved to play football and lift weights. He was so capable and talented at anything he tried. He was always with his mom, learning and helping her. If she was home, they were together. He spent a lot of time at his grandparents’ home.

Isaiah loved to work and be in the mountain at the family ranch that was “his heaven.” He loved to hike, listen to music, eat ice cream, and tease his mom. He had a great sense of humor, always wanting to make others smile. He had a way of befriending anyone he came in contact with.
