Patrick Michael Tallon, Jr., 54, of Oakdale, CA, passed away Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at Oak Valley Hospital, in Oakdale with his family by his side.  Patrick was born in Sacramento, CA on July 7, 1959, to Lorena Dawn (Thompson) and Patrick Michael Tallon, Sr.

Patrick TallonPatrick is survived by his son, Michael, and his wife, Kelli Tallon, of Sacramento, CA; daughters, Samantha Tallon, and Brianna Hayes, both of Modesto, CA; parents, Patrick and Helen Tallon, Sr. of Jackson, CA,;  sister, Christine, and her husband,  Eric Anderson, of Pine Grove, CA.; brothers, Mike, and his wife, Pamela Tallon of Castro Valley, CA; Grant Tallon and his fiancé, Lisa, of Jackson, CA; niece and many nephews.

Patrick was raised in Amador County, graduating from Jackson High School in 1977. He was the Jackson girls youth  softball coach during from the late 80’s to early 90’s leading them to 10 championships, in addition to serving as president of the softball league. Patrick was also a Jackson volunteer fireman working closely with the fire chief who happened to be his father, Patrick, Sr.  He worked as a Journeyman machinist for over 30 years the last 10 of which he lived and worked in Tuolumne County.

He will always be remembered as the stubborn hard headed, loving but ornery, hard worker, devoted father, all around good guy and of course “pretty boy” by his family and close friends. Cannot forget out spoken diehard Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco Giants fan. He had the ability to draw people in with his light hearted fun loving personality.

Twain Harte Info Has a New Home!


Posted by Annie in Uncategorized on July 21, 2009

Exciting news, has moved to a new location, with a new look and the best news, it’s interactive, so you can participate too.

The hubby and I have been talking about moving for a long time now and just when I had about given up, Shawn surprises me with a brand new blog on a domain we’ve been sitting on for ages. So, be sure to bookmark this new site. It will have the same Twain Harte content, pictures and information but with an entirely different look and more functionality. I’m so excited.

I invite you to look around and post your comments. Some of you may remember the old Twain Harte Times, it was the predecessor to the Sierra Mountain Times, now owned by our good friend Tim McCaffrey. The Twain Harte Times has been dead for quite sometime now, so we felt it was time for a comeback. I’ll be posting my comments and sharing my adventures as usual. We don’t have the news page moved over yet, but it will soon find a new home here too.

Once the conversion is complete, will be redirected to this new site, until it is sold.
