Charles Frederick Talbert, 68, of Bay City, our loving, determined, funny, and strong-willed husband, dad, Papa, brother, uncle, and friend went Home to be with the Lord on the evening of Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at McLaren Bay Region. Chuck was born in Saginaw on October 9, 1951, the son of the late James and Georgie (Burke) Talbert. He graduated T.L. Handy High School and went on to attend Delta College, receiving his Associate degree. Through mutual connections, Chuck met the former Candie Reinbolt. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on October 7, 1994.
Chuck retired from Nexteer, where he worked as a Journeyman Machinist. He was a faithful member of Bay City Evangelical Free Church and loved working on cars. What he loved even more was working on and riding his Harley. Chuck also enjoyed family camping trips to Michigan’s U.P., where the stop at Tahquamenon Falls was always his favorite. A true outdoorsman, Chuck also enjoyed fishing and hunting. Above all, Chuck cherished time spent with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was a dedicated family man who was always willing to help. His hardworking and dedicated ways will live on in the hearts of those he loved for generations to come. Chuck leaves to carry on his legacy, his wife of 25 years, Candie Talbert and his children, Frank (Meghan) Reinbolt and Crystal (Adam) Reynolds. He was the proud Papa of Camie, Maddie, Liliana, Ty, Ella, Caleb, Kane, Titan, and Cyrus. Chuck is also survived by his sisters, Allison, Jamie, and Judy Talbert; mother-in-law, Blanche Reinbolt, along with many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends.
