Service to be held on Wednesday morning in Holy Trinity Church Oud Metha
The life of former Dubai Eye Business Breakfast host Malcolm Taylor, who died suddenly last week at the age of 66 after suffering a heart attack, will be celebrated on Wednesday at a service in Holy Trinity Church Oud Metha.
Malcolm’s partner Teresa and his brother Chris Taylor are inviting anyone who would like to pay tribute to Malcolm to join the service from 10am.
A statement on the ARN website said: “The service will celebrate Malcolm’s life and allow his family to see his impact on Dubai. Everyone is welcome, whether you knew Malcolm, or just listened to the show and would like to attend.”
A long-term Gulf resident, Taylor first arrived in the region in 1967 when his parents were posted to Bahrain. His first trip to Dubai came five years later, when he and a few friends swam across the creek, with a rowing abra containing their clothes close behind.
Before joining Dubai Eye in 2004, he enjoyed a senior management career that saw him work for numerous blue chip companies including Dow Jones, Capital Intelligence and Reuters, holding country and regional management roles in Bahrain, Kuwait, Korea, Cyprus and South Africa.
