Life Story for
John Philip Taglio
John Taglio, 79, passed away peacefully on Dec. 9, 2014 surrounded by his adoring family.
John was born on Nov. 8, 1935 in Modesto, California to Philip and Lucile Taglio. After graduation from Santa Clara University he built a storied career in the building industry throughout California as president of Morrison Homes.
He and his wife Carol raised their family in Walnut Creek, California. In 1996, John was inducted into the California Builder’s Hall of Fame, a prestigious and honorable award for his excellence in leadership and professionalism.
He had the joy of introducing his young family to Sun Valley, Idaho and all it’s natural wonders. Carol in turn introduced the family to her beloved islands of Hawaii. After his retirement in 1996, they decided to share their time between Idaho and Kauai.
While in Kauai, they became members of Koloa Missionary Church where they enjoyed serving with their church family. John was very instrumental in planning their new church. Their church home in Idaho is the Calvary Bible Church in Hailey.
Throughout his career, John was respected and admired for his honesty, integrity and compassion for his fellow workers.
John is survived by his wife Carol of 50 years; sons Tory and Lane (Hilary); daughter Shae Aicher (Shawn); and four adored grandchildren, Lella and Connelly Aicher and Brennan and Clayton Taglio. Thank you for all your life’s lessons and unconditional love.
A celebration of John’s life will be held in California in the Spring.
