Theodore (Ted) Myrl Tolle, 81, went to God on Saturday, February 4th, 2017. He was born to Kenneth and Nettie Tolle on January 29th, 1936, in a log cabin in Wind River, Wyoming when it was 42 degrees below zero. He was the eldest of five. His family moved to Naches, WA where he graduated Naches Valley High School in 1955. After Ted graduated, he spent many years in the woods as a Logger. He spent the later part of his working career managing retirement homes with his loving wife. They moved to Ocean Park in 1986 and he finished his working career as a groundskeeper/ mechanic at Surfside Golf Course.
In his later years he had many hobbies, including; clamming, collecting stamps, playing cards with his many friends, traveling down the coast in the winter to Mexico and then to Arizona, and camping with friends and family. Ted was a family man. He loved spending time with his family, whether visiting relatives in the Yakima area, or sitting out on his deck eating oysters and drinking a beer during family reunions. He loved playing with his grandchildren and teaching them anything and everything. That was his nature, kind, caring, and loving. He was a happy person, with a great smile, although his natural facial expression was a scowl. He was a fun person to be around, and told the best stories and was full of hilarious jokes and expressions. He was a loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, Great-Great-Grandfather, and friend.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Nettie Tolle, his brother, Jim Tolle, his sister Dorothy Lee Dohm, and his grandsons Kevin Turner, and David Schumacher. He is succeeded in death by his loving wife of 42 years, Charlotte Tolle, his daughter, Debbie Tolle Clark, his two sons Jeff and Ted Tolle, his stepchildren, Sandri Krivda, Don Turner, David Turner, Dennis Turner, Doug Turner, Merri Turner , his grandchildren, Kenneth Turner, Leann Valks, Dylan Turner, Brooke Guyer, Amy Thomison, Daniel Turner, Brad Smith, Nick Smith, Debbie Schuman, Chad Craig, Kenneth Craig, Jasmine Bement, Jason Tolle, Warren Tolle, Jim Tolle, Daniel Tolle, several great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. He was greatly loved by all of his family and with anybody he became friends with. He will be terribly missed.
