Stephen "Steve" Talbot

August 6, 1932 — February 2, 2019

Stephen Daniel Talbot, age 86, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 2, 2019, at Aspire Assisted Living. Steve was born on August 6, 1932 in Seymour, WI, son of Roy and Margaret (Konz) Talbot. He worked at the Co-op filling station throughout high school, graduating from Appleton West in 1950. Steve then started working at Kimberly Clark as a traffic manager. His career was put on hold while he served in the United States Army. Steve met his future wife, Bette Lynch, when he was 17 years old when she asked him to dance during a lady’s choice. It only took him four dances to know she was the one. They were married on October 24, 1953 at St. Therese Catholic Church. Once Steve returned from the Army, he continued his work at Kimberly Clark retiring in 1989.

God blessed Steve with many talents. He learned to play the ukulele as a young man and enjoyed singing and playing for his family. Steve was an amazing wood worker; carving special graduation gifts for each of his grandchildren. He also enjoyed playing golf as well as hunting and fishing. He had a great sense of humor and will always be remembered for being an amazingly kind man. Above all, Steve cherished the time he spent with his friends and family; especially his loving dog Willy.

Steve will be missed by his loving wife of 65 years: Bette Talbot; his children: Tina (Dan) Boggess, Terry Talbot, Cary Lee (Bob) Dvorak, Lisa (Bill) Kapinski, Stevie (Andy) Klein, Michael Talbot, and Amy Talbot; his grandchildren: Kris, Emma, and Amanda Boggess, Tim Frick, Caitlin, Ryan and Meghan Dvorak, Lauren, Jake and Eliza Kapinski, and Joshua (Julia), Sam, and Ben Klein; and his four great grandchildren: Everett, Eden, Asher and Wyeth. He is further survived by his sister-in-law: Janis (Bud) Mayer, and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, siblings, and Bette’s parents: Joseph and Elizabeth Lynch.

The funeral service for Steve will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, February 8, 2019, at the WICHMANN FUNERAL HOME DOWNTOWN, 537 N. Superior St., Appleton, with Father Jim Leary O.F.M. Cap. officiating. A time of visitation will take place from 11:00 a.m. until the time of service. Online condolences may be expressed at www.wichmannfargo.com.
