    Music lover: Taylor Grier was passionate about inspiring youth


The “devastated” family of murder victim Taylor Grier, whose funeral will be held today, have appealed for public assistance to help cover the cost of bringing loved ones to join the celebration of his life.

Mr Grier’s father, John Grier, who lives in New York, said his overseas family was doing “all that we can” to attend the service at St Paul AME Church at 4pm, followed by Amis Memorial Chapel and Crematory.

A GoFundMe page has been created for Mr Grier.

The online page described him as “a beloved son, father, dancer, proud Bermudian with a love for New York and an all- around great young man”.

Mr Grier, 30, a father of one, was shot dead on July 27 when a gunman opened fire on a group of people on Court Street, near its junction with Elliott Street.

A 55-year-old man was also injured in the attack.

Crystal Turner, his first cousin, said Mr Grier was born in New York and later moved to Bermuda.

She added: “He had much love for both locations. He was very passionate about music, dance, inspiring the youth, and spreading peace and positivity.

“The family was devastated to hear about Taylor’s death.”

She added: “Taylor’s spirit will for ever live on in the hearts of anyone who has crossed paths with him.”

Update: This article was amended to say that the service will take place at St Paul AME Church at 4pm followed by Amis Memorial Chapel and Crematory. It initially said the service would be at Amis Memorial Chapel at 4pm.
