Condolences & Tributes

Celebrate Bruce's life with a short message, photo or video!

My sincere condolences to the Mayberry family. Talmadge was a true gentleman. He was always generous with his time and wisdom. I have fond memories of Talmadge helping me with woodworking projects when I was young and talking about coins at the coin club more recently. We shared many laughs during those times as his wit was quick and his humor strong. My thoughts and prayers are with you Genelda, Bruce, Sherry, Jerry and the rest of the Mayberry family.
