It is with profound sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of Taylor David Leonard Bridger-Holland, from acute respiratory disease syndrome (ARDS) on October 29, 2023, at Toronto General Hospital.
Taylor is survived by his loving parents Sandy Bridger and David Holland, his half-brother Matthew Holland, Miss Cleopatra (Cleo), and a wonderful extended family. Taylor was welcomed into heaven by great-grandparents Eileen “Tiny” and Leonard “Mort” Mortimer, grandparents Marilyn and Daniel Bridger, great-uncle Lawrence “Billy” Mortimer, Judy Galyen, Rhoda Sheldon, Al Machado, and Miss Pepper.
Taylor was an award-winning journalist. He lived with his parents in Pickering. He graduated from UTSC and Centennial College with an honours degree in journalism and a minor in history and politics.

His parents would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff at Toronto General Hospital, 14th floor Eaton wing. The level of care he received was outstanding! Thank you!
