It is with immense sadness that we report the loss of our beloved friend and producer Anthony Taylor, who suddenly passed away on the morning of Tuesday 16th November, 2021.
It is very difficult for us to put into words what he meant to us all here at Kode. He was an incredible producer, a father figure and above all, a true friend. He is utterly irreplaceable and we are totally heartbroken by his passing.
This feels incomprehensible that we’re talking about you in the past tense, Anthony. You were someone who acted only in kindness, with thoughts for others always coming first. You approached life and work with a level of simplicity and sophistication we all admired and could hold any room with your stories and great sense of humor, which we’ll share memories of forever.
Our lives were made so much richer for having known you. We will miss your laugh, your words, your impeccable taste, your Carhartt suits, and your all-navy wardrobe. We’ll miss knowing you’re not on the end of a ‘quick’ call, which were never going to be that quick, and would often veer off into weird and wonderful tangents and stories that only you could tell.
Our company isn’t what it is without you. Our lives aren’t what they are without you. Our hearts are broken.
All of our love and care goes out to Anthony’s beautiful wife Suzie, daughter Lottie and the whole family that we’ve also come to love over the years.
The industry has unfortunately just lost another one of its very best, but above all else, we have lost a truly great man.
We’ve set up a website where anyone who wants to share a photo or write down a special memory of Anthony can do so, which we’ll then publish in the coming weeks.
We’ll love you forever, Anthony.
