Cyrus Allen Talkington, 38, died April 20, 2022, in Wichita. He was born February 9, 1984, in Emporia.

Cyrus was preceded in death by his grandfather, June Talkington; and cousins, James Calvin Talkington and Konner Crabtree.
Cyrus grew up in Chase County except for a short time in Oregon, attended school until a junior and later received his G.E.D. He was involved in playing baseball in the summertime and joined 4-H when he was 7 years old. During that time he enjoyed working with the animals. Most of all he loved helping his grandpa, June Talkington, on the farm!
He was blessed to have worked for Billy Kewley, Casey Jones, Jim Tastove, Nathan Passmore and many other that needed a helping hand.
Cyrus attended Flint Hills Community Church, so it is fitting to have his celebration of life and his final farewells in God’s house.
