Cause of Death: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

My Dad died when I was 2 years old. I don't remember him. All I have are pictures and stories about him. If it weren't for my paternal grandparents, I wouldn't have many stories or know much about my Dad. The big question has always remained: was his death suicide or accidental? I have always received conflicting stories (even though the coroner ruled his death accidental). My mother told me once my dad killed himself because of me. Regardless of how or why he died, he is still my Dad. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. I always have and always will have a sense of loss because I never had the opportunity to truly get to know my Dad. I think of him every single day.. My dad will never be forgotten and will be loved always.

David Toelle, age 20 years. Survived by wife Rebecca; daughter Kimberly; parents Duane and Bernice Toelle; brother Duane "Butch" Jr. of Omaha; maternal grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gundersen, Valley, Nebraska; paternal grandmother Martha Toelle, Beemer, Nebraska. Larry Wesolik officiated the funeral service.

Thank you to everyone who has left kind words on this Find a Grave Memorial for my Dad. I read each one of them and appreciate the time you take to express your sentiments.
