Donald Gray Tallakson was born September 14, 1947 and passed away peacefully January 7, 2020. Don is preceded in death by his parents Wendell and Luella Tallakson; son Edward Tallakson; and brother Dennis Tallakson. He is survived by daughters: Jennifer Hayes and husband Rick; Kimberly Lewis and husband Thomas; sister Karen Taylor and husband David; Brother, Richard Tallakson; as well as numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephews, nieces, other extended family and living friends.

Don Tallakson was a very kind and considerate person. He served in the United States Navy as a cook during the Vietnam War and was very proud of his service there. Don was genuinely interested in people and their stories. He saw value in everyone. Don was certainly a dedicated American and a blessing to many over the years he was granted on this earth. At times he would fish as a way to relax and like every other brother, never passed on the opportunity to pick on his sister. Don also found joy in singing as well as being in the great outdoors. He is now free and able to enjoy it more than ever before.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Honor of Don to Wounded Warrior Project.
