Walta and family, we are praying for you all in the death of John. We enjoyed worshiping with you and others at First Baptist in Dayton.

May the Lord comfort you during this time.

Doug lost his father and step mother this year.

We send our love and regrets to such a beautiful family that we consider to be our own. We were so shocked at the news and hope that God blesses all of you with his grace and mercy. What a blessing he was and such a fun person, a fantastic father, and loving husband. Please know you are loved and thought of. All of you- we send our love.

To Walta, Barry and children
John would be so proud to read the comments. He did exactly what he should have when he became a teacher. I'm glad his students loved him so much. My condolances
to you all on this sad loss. He was a good
friend when we were young. I know he was proud of his sons and family. God bless and hold you close in your grief.

Walta, we are so saddened by the passing of John. We love you dearly, and we are sorry we are unable to be with you. We both have health issues.
May God bless you and your family.rkgjr

Mr.Toliver you were my favorite teacher! You were like a life sized teddy bear. We love you and you will be remembered and missed!

Mr. Toliver was a sweet, funny, knowledgeable teacher. I had the pleasure of having him as my U.S. history teacher in 11th grade at RCHS. His sense of humor made class enjoyable, and some of my fondest high school memories stem from time spent in his class. I am saddened to know that the world has lost such a kindhearted man. My prayers are with the family now and in the coming days.
