Albert J. (Curley) Toth
A funeral mass for Albert J. Toth, 88, was celebrated in the Sublette Center Heritage Room Monday, April 10, with the Reverend Robert G. Lynch officiating. Albert died April 5 at the Sublette Center after a brief illness.
He was born Aug. 16, 1917, in Rock Springs, the son of Barthalomew and Justina Toth. He attended schools in Rock Springs and graduated from Rock Springs High School in 1935.
Albert married Fern M. Moss on Dec. 17, 1939, at St. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Rock Springs. Several years later, they started their electrical contracting business, Curley’s Electric. In later years, his sons, Greg and James, joined him to enlarge the company which became Curley Toth and Sons, Inc.
Albert was a lifetime member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. He was very active in the community and his church. Albert was known for his excellent tenor voice and sang in the choirs of the Rock Springs and Pinedale catholic churches for more that 25 years. He was also very active with the Rock Springs Humane Society, donating much time in service of homeless animals.
Albert and Fern retired to their home in Pinedale in 1974. Until recently, he was an avid bowler, competing successfully at city and state levels. He enjoyed many years of fishing the streams and lakes of Wyoming, and golfing at Rendezvous Meadows Course.
He is survived by his wife, Fern; three children: Marilyn Dorrence of Centennial, James Toth of South Ogden, Utah, and Greg Toth of Pinedale; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Rock Springs Humane Society, 310 Yellowstone, Rock Springs, Wyo., 82901.
