August 13, 1970—May 15, 2020

   CAMP DOUGLAS - Michael William Talbert, age 49, of Camp Douglas, Wisconsin, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Friday, May 15, 2020. He was born August 13, 1970 to Clarence and Linda (Guy) Talbert in Virginia. Mike was united in marriage to Amanda Schroeder on May 12, 2007 at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Camp Douglas.

   Mike was a master certified mechanic - in both Ford and Chrysler - and most recently worked for Brenengen Auto in Tomah. He was extremely hard working and very skilled at his job.

   Mike could be described as a “simple kind of man”. He was the kind of guy you would call when you needed a ride, a shoulder to cry on, or just a friend to talk to. Mike enjoyed coon hunting, fishing, and being at the racetrack. He was a caring husband and loving father and grandfather.

   He is survived by his wife, Amanda; children, Holly Van Wormer, Ashley (Nate) Cullen, Bethany Talbert, Kaitlyn Schroeder (Talbert), Olivia Talbert, Devyn Talbert, and Garett Talbert; grandchildren, Wyatt, Hunter, Kodi, Sonny and Scarlett; godchildren, Jacob Steele and Gracelynn Schott; sister, Batina (Rich) Laxton; brothers, Keith and Christopher Talbert; mother-in-law, Sara Schroder; and father-in-law, Blaine (Eldre) Schroeder. He is further survived by several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

   He was preceded in death by his parents; and infant daughters, Bristol and Mae.

   Private family services will be held on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at the Torkelson Funeral Home in Tomah. Pastor Jeff Ruetten will officiate. A Celebration of Mike’s life will be announced at a later date.

   The Torkelson Funeral Home of Tomah is assisting the family with arrangements.
