With sadness, we share that Karel Toll died at the age of 96. Karel was born and raised in NJ. He served in the Navy during World War II. Karel went on to have a career with DuPont for 50 years. Karel and Doris (who died two years ago) were married just shy of 70 years. They had four children together: Amy Toll Redman, Christine Toll, Peter Toll, and Michael Toll. And they had six grandchildren. He had two sisters who are alive today: Barbara Stille and Jean Toll. You can view his obituary, here.
Karel was a deeply committed member of this church for many years. He helped our church raise money and helped to start up and to sustain other Unitarian Universalist congregations in nearby areas that didn’t already have a church but wanted one.
Karel was calm. He was a deep thinker. And he was someone who embodied our faith every day. He was an avid bird watcher and a member of the Audubon Society. He took part in the annual bird sightings to keep tract of the bird population.
We extend our care and concern to his children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and to his sisters, especially to Jean who is a member of our First Unitarian community. Memorial service information will be forthcoming.
