John Adrian Tallant

September 30, 1960 — February 13, 2022

John A. Tallant was born September 30th. 1960 in Waynesville, Missouri. The son of Lewis Derrall Tallant and Doris Ruthilda (Boldes) Tallant both parents were veterans of World War II.

Johnny was called home by Papa/God on Sunday February 13th. at his home in Mc Alister, Montana at the age of 61 years.

Johnny had many adventures growing up beginning in Missouri, then onto California, a time in Arizona, next Oregon, but fell in love with the Big Sky’s of Montana where he lived the last 20 years with his wife, Sabrena “Beanie” Kay Tallant, his soulmate of 31 years. Together they were one.

John and Sabrena spent many years in Montana having adventures. They loved to pack a lunch and load up Bear their canine friend of 12 years and go fishing.

Johnny enjoyed cooking and gathering food to create his dishes, one being his famous elk burgers or Grandma Navajos fried bread. He loved the outdoors of Montana and Indian lore. No one could tell a story like Johnny. Johnny was bigger than the story itself.

He loved America, God, history, hunting, fishing, crabbing, gardening, cooking, good strait shooting guns, mining, landscape design, space- the vast frontier, critters, singing, and most of all his wife, children, many nieces and nephews, family, and friends.

Johnny loved people and God who he addressed as Papa. Johnny knew how to pray in earnest and had the heart of a lion, but gentle in sprit with a laugh that was uniquely Johns.

No one knew wild animal nature better than Johnny, he could talk to them and understood their habits, needs, and environment. The same can be said of the forest and weather patterns. His knowledge was vast in depth and understanding of earth dynamics.

John was the youngest of six siblings and survived by Stephen, Christy, Lynn, Debbie and Rachel, including his children Justin, Jessica, Brandon, Joseph, Briar and granddaughter Elenore.
