Dr. John Richard Tallman

On April 17th, 2018, God called home, Dr. John Richard Tallman, age 77, in Murrieta, California. Born in Burbank, California, to Richard and June Tallman. His formative years were spent in Seal Beach and he graduated from Huntington Beach High School in 1959. He honorably served the US Navy as a Corpsman before starting his family in 1964. He then went on to earn his doctorate from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in1967 where his lifelong passion to serve began
His passion to heal through Chiropractic touched and changed the lives of many. This dedication to the healing arts, as a doctor of Chiropractic, and his concern for his patients went beyond the concept of retirement as many know it. A chiropractor for 50 years, he practiced in Huntington Park, California for the past 45 years and was absolutely dedicated to his family of patients.
As an involved citizen, he was a Planning Commissioner for the City of Maywood for 16 years, Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Rotary club member.
Throughout his life he enjoyed the outdoors immensely. He loved deep-sea fishing and hunting with friends and family. He enjoyed traveling abroad and was an avid historian. He loved animals, listening to western audio tapes, and loved talking politics if you were up for a political debate.
His Catholic faith held him devoted to our Father in heaven which was strengthened with pilgrimages to the Holy Land in recent years.
Dr Tallman is survived by his daughters, Theresa Kemp, Bretta DeMarco, & Leslie Van Deusen; Son-in Laws Larry DeMarco and Elisha VanDeusen; Grandchildren Desiree, Andrew, Dylan, Lauren, Elena, Vanessa, Nicole and his great grandchildren Gunner and Paislee along with many more caring family members and friends.
