We had the honor of knowing Robert Toller and his wife. He was the father-in-law to my brother Alan who married Colleen, Roberts daughter. Of the course of many years we have had the opportunity to attend family functions in which Robert was there. I was able to get to know Robert and see how he was loved by all especially all his grandchildren. Robert loved each and every one of them and was always ready to play games, ball, or sports. He was a very loved man and one who was well respected by all. We will all miss Robert but we know he is in a much better place now and with his sweet heart. May our thoughts and prayers be with the family at this time and my good be with you..

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your loved one. I met him when Rob married my cousin Jean. Little did I know that a few years later he would be in my ward as a young mother. He and Gloria were so good to us. They raised such a wonderful family. Please remember to celebrate the life his just begun rather than mourn the life he just left. What a wonderful reunion it is that he is with his sweet wife and parents forever . Love,Julie Cude Whitttier
