MORGAN – A special man left this world on December 1, 2014. George A. Toelcke was born May 1, 1943 in New York to his parents Ida and George Adamec. He spent his childhood in Westwood, NJ. He graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with his Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering. He meet his wife Teri Kelley Toelcke of 48 years taking his ski patrol test at Belleayre Mountain in New York State. They married in Woodstock, NY on 11-26-1966. Together they lived in Massachusetts and New Jersey where their two sons, George (tiger) and Ross Toelcke were born. They spent the majority of their lives together in Park City, UT. There, their daughter, Tobi Toelcke Hunze was born. He worked at Emico Corp in SLC and later started his own business. He was father-in-law to Stephanie Folkman, Melanie Toelcke and Thomas Hunze. He was a loving grandfather to Lucy and Charlie Toelcke and Olivia Hunze.
George was a loving husband, father, grandfather and man of God. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was an entrepreneur who worked very hard, but played hard too. He enjoyed spending time and traveling with his family and friends, doing anything outdoors including skiing, snowmobiling, motorcycling, hiking, camping and playing on his tractor on his ranch.
He was blessed to take multiple motorcycle adventures around the world including to Europe, Croatia, and Peru. With every new adventure he came back with stories, pictures, memories, and new found friends.
If you asked George, he lived a great life! He was a passionate man who stood up for the things that were important to him. He loved being able to bless others. If he saw someone had a need, he would be the first to try and help.
He enjoyed time with family, friends and doing the things he loved almost up until his last days. It was in August of 2014, that he was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor. He passed away peacefully in the loving presence of many of his family members. He will be dearly missed and will live on in our hearts.
Special thanks to Encompass Hospice and his nurse Corey and to our friends who have prayed with us and given love and support during this journey.
A memorial service will be held in the Spring of 2015. (Dad is skiing until then...)
