Tallarico died peacefully at the Hunt Community Home where he was surrounded by his family. A WWII Veteran, he was also a musician his entire life and his talents helped nurture his son's meteoric music career. He was performing until the age of 93 and would play concerts for cocktail hours each week at the Hunt Home.
"Of course, I'm proud of him," he said of Steven in a 2010 interview with the Nashua Telegraph. "(He's) number one in the rock field. There is none like him. There will never be. He, as far as I'm concerned, is a genius."
Tallarico is survived by his brother, his two children, Steven and Lynda, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. As his obituary states, "Among Victor's proudest accomplishments were his offspring: Lynda, a retired teacher who resides in southern Vermont, and Steven, who, having been well launched into the music business by Victor, became famous as Steven Tyler, the lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith."
