  3. Talma was one of the Good Guys. Condolences to Donnie and family. Talma always pursued excellence in what he was doing. His smile and good nature celebrating both big and small projects or stories was always a pleasure to share.

    His work ethic and community pride was a foundation that made Bass Shoe a world leader in manufacturing quality footwear.
