Texas Roadhouse founder Kent Taylor was 65 years old when he took his own life. His family says this happened due to post-COVID side effects

TMZ reports that Taylor suffered from tinnitus, a ringing in his ears, and it got severe. It was reported that this got so bad it sounded like a jet engine in his ears.

Taylor took his own life due to this post-COVID side effect according to his family. The ringing in his ears got much worse in the past few days. They said that “Kent battled and fought hard,” but the suffering was too much to endure.

He started the Texas Roadhouse franchise in 1993 and grew the franchise to 537 locations in 49 states. They also had 10 international restaurants. Our thoughts are with Taylor’s family during this sad time.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
