Henry Taylor of Grain Valley,Mo. died the last part of may.Henry was one of the founding fathers of the Santa Caligon Irish Setter Club. In the 60's and 70's Henry ran red setters here in the midwest.His kennel prefix was Whirlaway. Some of his red dogs were: Whirlaway Pat (Ike Jack Kendrick son),Whirlaway Chief,Jhonny Popper. Henry and a gentleman by the name of D. Jhonson were instrumental in bringing Ned LeGrande's red setters to our part of the country. Henry Taylor was introduced to me in 1967. My dad had told me he would pay half of a birddog pup.My research at the public library Indicated if you found Irish Setters bred for the field, their would be no equal. I bought my first red setter after a disagreement with my dad. He didn't consider the red pup a good candidate so I bought Lady on my own. A few years latter I decided I wanted to raise a litter. I asked advice from by boyscout leader who field trialed. This was my first contact with Mr. Henry Taylor. This man was opinionated,sometimes rude and obnoxious. He was one of the BEST men I ever met.Henry would help anyone when asked.When I decided to break my first dog this was the man I asked for advice.When I went to my first horseback trial at Lee's Summit,mo. I rode a horse furnished by Henry. The Shepler's saddle that I ride originally belonged to Henry. The redsetter fratenity lost a good one.
I will miss him.
