On September 21, 2019 he married his soulmate, Alexis Burgess, at the Church of Christ in Alba. Most recently Tallis was employed by ICT in Florida as a construction project manager.
Tallis loved the outdoors. He enjoyed riding dirt bike with his best friend Joe Shore as well as hunting and fishing. Tallis was the friendliest person you would ever meet. he had very warm heart and would do anything he could to help anyone at any time. Although Tallis could be hard headed at times he had the sweetest personality and a contagious smile that he always wore. Tallis could often be found hanging out in his garage, either tinkering on something or just spending time with friends. He also liked playing monopoly with his closest friends, Nate Thompson, Travis Burgess and Zach Ragan, who was also his cousin. Most important to Tallis was spending time with his wife and boys. They were his world and he loved them more than anything.
