OGDEN, Utah, Nov. 13, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — The body of Maj. Brent Taylor will return to Utah Wednesday. His funeral will be held Saturday in Ogden.

Taylor’s family has announced that his body is expected to arrive at 3 p.m. at Roland R. Wright Air National Guard Base, 765 N. 2200 West, Salt Lake City.

The funeral will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Dee Events Center, 4400 Harrison Blvd. Ogden. A public viewing will take place Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the center. All are welcome at the viewing and funeral, the family has said.
