"Buddy" Toal was a good friend of my fathers, Jimmie J Rigoli. As a child I remember Buddy visiting our home and playing monopoly with us. I learned from my parents that he was a great artist however I don't believe he was professional in selling his work. Apparently he was extremly good but was a perfectionist sometimes ripping up a total wonderful piece of artwork because it did not meet his high standards. Sadly, like so many truly great talented people he was compelled to be perfect in his work and unfortunately it drove him to take his own life. Buddy is buried in Siloam Cemetery, N. Valley Ave., Vineland, NJ. HIs grave can be found with other veterans with like stones. This cemetery is just down the road from where he would visit my family on Clarendon Ave. I don't know if Buddy had much family. I ride by his grave everytime I visit Siloam to place flowers on my own ancester's graves. I have added Buddy to that list of the graves I tend to letting him know that there is at least one person who visits and thinks of the childhood memories of "Buddy" Toal.
