Dennis E. Toler – I was born a sinner in 1947 and was saved by grace in 1974 by his love and cleansed by his blood, and now I am absent from the body and present with the Lord on Thursday, April 25, 2019.
I am survived by my wife of 40 years, Chong S. Toler. I’m so very blessed; my wife has truly been my helpmate, blessing, encourager and friend. Also, I am survived by my son, Merrill G. Toler. He has affected my life and many others in a very positive way. If every dad could be so fortunate to have a son like mine; he’s been the apple of my eye. Also surviving is Merrill’s wife, Ashley, my wonderful daughter-in-law.
I am grateful for having completed my Doctorate in Theology. I entered the U.S. Army, starting out as a private and retiring 20 years later as a chief warrant officer 3.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, April 30, at Rosewood-Kellum Funeral Home. A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m., Wednesday, May 1, at Rosewood Memorial Park, Chapel of Serenity Mausoleum.
In lieu of flowers, I request that you make a memorial contribution to our church’s college fund, Virginia Beach Theological Seminary, 2221 Centerville Turnpike, Virginia Beach, VA 23464. The death, burial and resurrection is the gospel. So go with God, and he will go with you.
