    Default Dick Talleur


    Richard W. Talleur

    November 20, 1931 – > February 18, 2011

    Richard W. Talleur passed on Friday February 18, 2011, after a brief illness. Originally from Clinton Corners, NY, Dick enjoyed a long career with AT&T. After retiring from AT&T, Dick took his favorite hobby and first love, and made it his life. Dick was an accomplished fly tier and fisherman, and a well-known and respected author of several books on fishing and fly-tying. Dick loved his sport and, with his many friends, supported the continuation of fly fishing and the practice of catch and release.

    Dick is predeceased by his parents Richard B. Talleur and Dorothy Carner Talleur Wollenhaupt; and by his son William D. Talleur. He is survived by his wife Vera A. Talleur, his step-son Yuri Y. Kovalenko, his sister Carolyn A. Lawatsch of Pompano Beach, FL, his brother David C. Talleur and wife Denise of Midway, GA, and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

    There will be a Memorial Service at the McMillian-Small Funeral Home, Highway 17 Bypass at 67th Ave, Myrtle Beach, SC (843-449-3369), on Tuesday February 22, 2011. The family will receive guests at the Funeral Home starting at 3:30pm, followed by a Celebration of his Life service beginning at 5:00 pm. At a later date, in a private family ceremony, DickÔ€™s ashes will be dispersed in a place of his choosing.

    Dick would have appreciated any donations, in lieu of flowers, be made to HEIFER INTERNATIONAL, or to a Charity of your choice in his name.

    Please also sign the McMillian-Small Funeral Home guestbook at Home.

    The simpler the outfit, the more skill it takes to manage it, and the more pleasure one gets in his achievements.ö --- Horace Kephart

    Sad. Rest in peace.
    Sure seems like we've lost a lot of good people fairly recently.

    Talleur's "Basic" was the first instructional I got.
    RIP, Dick.
