“He was one of the most level headed chasers on the roads and truly a classy guy outside of chasing.

“He didn’t chase for the glory he chased because he had a true passion for storms. “

“In the last few years he’d load up with his dad and go chase and not even take a camera.

“Our hearts are hurting for his mom Tracy and dad Jimmy along with his brother and sister and their children.

“Please know you are in our prayers. RIP Joel.”

Joel was obviously much loved and will be missed by many. Rip Joel Taylor!
