Deacon Daniel Francis Tolbert Sr.
Sunrise: December 17, 1934 Sunset: March 28, 2014

"Not one day in anyone's life is an uneventful day, no day without profound meaning… because in every day of your life, there are opportunities to perform little kindnesses for others, both by conscious acts of will and unconscious example. Each smallest act of kindness-even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile-reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo… from pain and grief, we must weave hope, for each of us is a thread critical to the strength-to the very survival of the human tapestry. Every hour in every life contains such often-unrecognized potential to affect the world that the great days and thrilling possibilities are combined always in this momentous day."

Deacon Tolbert reached out and touched many lives with his humility and generous spirit. He was an example to hold up to his family and community at large. He made each and every day a momentous day in our lives.

It is with profound sadness that the Tolbert, Freeman/Fahnbulleh, and Darblo/Gray families announce the passing of our great and gentle giant Deacon Daniel F. Tolbert Sr. This event occurred on Friday, March 28, 2014 at his home in Sinkor.

It is with hope that we celebrate the life of our beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and grandfather. He leaves to mourn his wife, Myrna R. Tolbert; children: Beatrice Nuarhpa, Konah Tolbert-Karas, Daniel F. Tolbert Jr., Rosemarie Tolbert-Clinton, Fametta Tolbert-McKinney, Wilhelmina Tolbert-Banfield, Luakena Tolbert; grandchildren: Myrna Aful, Zina Karas , Zaiya Karas, Aidan Banfield, Amisa Banfield, Daniel F. Tolbert III, Jayden Rose Clinton , and Zahari Anne Clinton; a sister Kula J. Tolbert, a brother Levi Tolbert, and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins whom he loved dearly.

Deacon Tolbert was a respected businessman and dedicated family man. Although we will miss him dearly his footprints leave a legacy to uphold.
