It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of David Edward Tallent on June 27,2024.

Dave was born January 27, 1944. He was born and raised in Franklin, North Carolina. In his late teens he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, then in his mid 20’s, he moved to Canada. Dave chose Kamloops as his home where he met his Soul Mate in 1981 and they married in 1986. Dave worked for Weyerhaeuser, Canada until he retired in 2006.


Dave loved camping with family and friends, enjoyed fishing and hunting and the outdoors.

Dave also enjoyed coaching and playing ball for many years in and around Kamloops and enjoyed the year end ball parties.


Dave and Shelley loved to travel throughout the US and Canada pulling their home the 5th wheel behind them. His pride and joy were his 4 grandsons, and they were a big part of his life. He loved to go back home to the Smokey Mountains and see his family often.


The Family would like to send a Heartfelt thank-you to Doctor Rachael Cook for all her care and kindness.
