Richard Michael Talbot 1954-2024


Richard Michael Talbot, 70, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, May 29, 2024, at home with his loving and devoted wife Connie by his side.

A celebration of life will take place Saturday, June 22, 2024 at 11 a.m. at First Methodist Church Azle. The family requests no flowers or plants. Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of your choice.

He was born Jan. 17,1954 in Washington, D.C. to Louis Lester and Helen Beatrice (Knopp) Talbot. Rich grew up in Fort Worth and after marrying, settled with his bride in Weatherford where he ran a successful landscape business while owning and managing several rental properties. A skilled handyman, Rich’s interests included over two decades of playing percussion in church praise bands, hiking, skiing and a passionate love of classic Mustang cars. His easy-going nature, down-to-earth pragmatism, infectious sense of humor, coupled with his readiness to help those in need was a blessing to all.

Rich was preceded in death by both parents; sisters Ann Marie Talbot and Margret Mary (Talbot) Spain; and brother John Anthony Talbot.

Left to cherish fond memories are his loving and devoted wife of 44 years, Connie Talbot; brothers Ralph Talbot (Diana Riesen), Tom Talbot (Jerry Ann), Bill Talbot (Stephanie) and James Talbot (Lori); and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and a wealth of friends.
