James Carroll Talbott, 76, of Westminster, died Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013, at home.
Born May 4, 1937, in Irvington, Va., he was the son of the late Albert and Myra Estelle Talbott. He was the husband of Genevieve B. "Jenny" Talbott, his wife of 49 years, who died in 2010.
He was a veteran of the Air Force. He was the owner and administrator of Golden Age Guest Home, now know as Brinton Woods, until he retired in 2005. He was a quietly devoted man of God who served the community all his life.
For 45 years he cared for and saw to it that every resident of Golden Age was cared for as his personal family. He was anonymously responsible for many youth in Carroll County attending Young Life summer camps. He was also a supporter of Maryland Special Olympics
and the Humane Society of the United States.

Leppo, and Donna L. and John Felkner Jr.; grandson and granddaughter-in-law Jordon E. and Virginia Leppo; granddaughters Brooke M. Leppo and Kaitlyn V.R. Talbott; and grandsons James Cody Talbott, Trevor John Felkner and Skylar James Felkner.
