Talton accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Bethel Baptist Church where he served on the Usher Board and Trusty Committee.
Talton graduated from Mineral Wells High School in May 1977. During his tenure there, he would go on to set many MWHS records as a running back wearing his favorite number “35” which his children proudly wore as they competed in different athletic activities. He married the love of his life, Joyce Lynn Brady, in June 1977. This union resulted in three beautiful children and a bonus son.
Talton was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred Hulin, Sr. and Alice Hulin; son, Talton Burton, Jr. in 1998; and his beautiful wife, Joyce Hulin in 2018.

During his lifetime, Talton was known to love his heavenly father, wife, kids, grandchildren, family, and friends. In his younger years, he was admired for being a hard worker, as well as a great football and track coach. In his spare time, he enjoyed hunting with his big brother Alfred Hulin Jr and dear friend Stan Breckenridge, being a master at BBQ and “tinkering” with just about anything. But his best work, was being an incredible husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. One of Talton’s greatest attributes was how he treated people. He went out of his way to make everyone feel welcomed and important. His loss leaves us all with the heaviest of hearts. As a humbled man, he never sought attention. However, he would like us to remember his laid-back gentle way, his inviting smile, and the love he showed.
