Dallas passed away in the early morning hours of Jan. 18.

“This morning at 2:30 am I lost the love of my life Dallas W Taylor, he came into my life almost 18 yrs ago and saved me as much as i may have saved him,” Patti wrote on her Facebook page the morning of her husband’s death.

“To me he was just a Good Man, a Good Friend, a Good Father, a Good Grandfather or Pop Pop, a Great Drummer and much beloved by many,” she continued.

“I cannot even find the words to put down to say how grateful I am for the many friends and family who have been there for both of us these many days he has spent in the hospital, especially last night. I know he is a peace. He will be missed beyond words, it is so very hard to imagine my life without him by my side, but i feel his love even as i write these words. Much Love to you all …Patti”

Dallas Taylor’s Legacy

Dallas performed throughout the late 1960s with his band Crosby, Stills and Nash and he appeared on seven hit albums. He even performed with them during Woodstock in 1969.

Sadly, he was fired by the band in 1970 due to his drug addiction. Later on in his life, he became an alcohol and drug interventionist in LA.

Dallas will forever be in the hearts of many fans, friends and family. He has a son, Dallas Jr., a daughter Lisa and five grandchildren.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who is affected during this tough time.
