Arthur James Talboo II, age 73, of The Villages, FL, passed away on February 6, 2020. He was born June 14, 1946, in Ellwood City, PA, the son of the late Arthur James and Rhea (Meehan) Talboo.  Art attended Slippery Rock University before marrying Marcia Bazylak Talboo in 1974.  Art and Marcia moved to Smithtown, New York, where he taught in the East Islip School District as a science teacher and basketball coach.  Art and Marcia moved to The Villages in 2004 where he became involved in many activities, including the Three Rivers Club, where he served as Vice President.  Art was an avid Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers fan and golfer.  Some of the family’s greatest memories with Art involve going to sports events, including Super Bowl XL, and traveling to many places.


Art is survived by his wife Marcia, his daughter Mindy (Harrison Miller) Talboo of Arlington, Virginia, his son AJ (Stephanie) Talboo of Ashburn, Virginia, and grandchildren Caroline Talboo, Owen Talboo, Emma Talboo and brother Charles (Karen) Talboo.

    I had Mr. Talboo for 7th grade and 9th grade Science. While fairly strict, he was also playful and a very funny man. He and my dad shared the same affinity for the Pittsburgh Pirates. I struggled in 9th grade due to an undiagnosed medical condition and missed a lot of days of school. I was failing two classes and borderline on some others, my teachers wanted to hold me back. Mr. Talboo was the only teacher that fought for me, that saw my potential and knew I wasn’t just being lazy. He is the sole reason I was promoted to 10th grade, only having to take the two failed classes over again. I’ve never forgotten that and I even called him not too long ago to tell him so and let him know what kind of an influence he had on me. He was a great man, and I’m hoping he and my dad are having a drink together watching some Pirates baseball.

    Thank you Mr. Talboo for putting me on the right path and fighting for me. I’m so happy I got to tell you what it meant to me.

    You were a wonderful man and inspiration to many of us at East Islip. I was fortunate enough to play basketball for you and have you in Earth Science. I appreciate how you were always dedicated to making others better people. God Bless

    I honestly would not be where I am today if Mr. Talbots has not made me think about the decisions I was making. He was the one I talked to about my college choices and where I wanted to go. I don’t think I would have even gone to visit schools and make the choices I did, that got me where I am now. My prayers are with his family. May he Rest In Peace
