  1. Chip, Kim, Rich and all the family…we are so very sorry to hear about Mr Talmadge. He was such a character when he came into Sergio’s to get his favorite veggie pizza. We will miss his charm and especially his constant happy smiling face. May he Rest In Peace.
    Love the Sergio’s family…Stella Rena and Sergio. 🙏🏻

  2. I am so sorry to hear of Burt’s passing. Having been a part of the Riley family for many years, I had the privilege of getting to know the entire Talmadge Family. I have many memories of everyone. May God bring you comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    With love,
    Michelle Ciastko (Michelle Riley)

  3. Burt was always one of my favorite people. The work he did for the Harris family was always appreciated. Hard working and always with a story. The Talmadge name is associated with quality. I’ll miss you Burt and peace be with your family.

  4. My condolences. My parents were friends with the Talmadges. My mother, Justine Anderson, was a particular friend of Helen through the Women’s Club and HRTC.

  5. My sympathy to the entire Talmadge family. Burt was an all around good man and a great neighbor. I’ll miss that great demeanor that was ever present with him. John Bellmore

  6. To Burt’s Family- So sorry for your loss. Although it’s only been a short period of time that I have known Burt he immediately captured a piece of my heart. He brought lots of smiles & laughs to myself and fellow co-workers @ congregate. I will think of him every time I get a personal size pizza from Sergio’s. As ironically I did just this past Saturday night and was wondering how you were Burt. I now know it’s official you’re an angel.
