John Talbot, 89 of Brookfield, WI passed away peacefully while briefly under hospice care. Born on November 20, 1932 in Milwaukee, he was the son of Edward and Angela (nee Kasun) Talbot. Since January 5, 1965, he resided in the house he designed and built with his loving wife Joyce (nee Lindner) of 61 years. John served our country stateside while in the Army during the Korean War. For most of his career, he was the new car manager of the top Oldsmobile dealership for 20 consecutive years in the state of Wisconsin. After his retirement at age 55, Joyce and John enjoyed golfing together and traveling to Florida for extended vacations. Joyce preceded him in death in 2017 at age 84. They were born the same year, only 3 days apart.
