ForeverMissed

Dwayne Joseph Toelle was born on November 11, 1935 to Frank and Clara (Moody) Toelle in West Point.  He attended Guardian Angels school through the 8th grade before returning home to help his father farm.   In his teenage years, Dwayne also helped Frank Fillmer with his farm.  On November 15, 1955, he was united in marriage to Lois English in West Point.  In 1955, Dwayne started working for the Cuming County Public Power District where his work ethic earned him several promotions.  After 43 years, he retired from CCPPD and worked for Bracht Feedyards.  Dwayne then started his dream job working for Nebraska Veterinary Services in their warehouse. 

Dwayne was involved with the Jaycees, Izaak Walton League, and Cuming County 4-H Sheep Division.  He and Lois were instrumental in starting the West Point Exotic Bird Auction and were also in charge of the children’s barnyard at the Cuming County Fair.  Dwayne had a passion for all animals and especially loved his laying hen chickens.  He loved conversing with friends at the fair and with the farmers at work.  Dwayne could be found at the Baron Pet Cemetery helping with projects and keeping up the grounds with his friend, Bob Wostoupal.

Well you old fart! It's been a year already that you've been gone and I think of you everyday! Miss your grumpiness and your laugh. Wish you were still with us but I figure you are up there catching up with Frankie, and Mom. Miss you and love you!

Happy Birthday Dad! Missing you. Moving this weekend, but I am sure you would love the couple that is moving in here on the farm. Two little red haired kids will be running around here and they are planning on continuing your legacy and get some chickens in the fall. I will miss the farm but a lot of great memories will go with me.

Memorial service

Shared by Jill Toelle on April 16, 2016

We had the memorial service, and we would like to thank all the friends and relatives who payed tribute to my Dad Dwayne. The service was wonderful and I think did him proud! Loved that the minister told about his chickens and the bathroom! He loved those darn hens and hated having to get rid of them when he could no longer care for them.

He also missed his job greatly at Nebraska vet services. They treated him like a grandfather and friend. He enjoyed all the employees and vets, and especially visiting with the farmers.

I used to tell him I wasn't going to town or the fair with him anymore because a trip that should have taken a half hour took and hour or longer because he would say, " oh I ran into so and so and they wanted to visit!" Yeah I know who visited, my Dad. Seemed like he knew everyone! I guess maybe he did after working for ccppd for 43 years!

Well Dad we are keeping on keeping on, and trying to do the farm justice. No chickens for now but maybe in the future! Love you!
