Toellner, John Donald  
June 6, 1924 - May 28, 2015 Nine days before his 91st birthday, John D. Toellner, Papa, Grandpa, Uncle, Cousin, Friend, and WWII veteran, silently slipped away during a peaceful moment. His surviving children, Jon Toellner, Jolie Nelson, Jaye Rogovin and six grandchildren, Jonno, Charlie, Chelsea, Chloe, Hattie, and Eva are all so proud he lived such a long and happy life. John is also survived by his faithful caregiver, Nicco Torres, whom the family would like to thank for taking great care of their dad. John was born in Auburn, Washington, the second son of Henry Toellner and Mary Adelaide McRae. By way of the Great War (in the Pacific) and UC Berkeley, he became an engineer and lived in the Bay Area for ten years. He worked at the Container Corporation and then at Shell Oil. In 1961, he moved to Southern California where he eventually moved into management consulting with Ernst & Ernst, breaking out to form his own firm in 1966, Spectrum International. During this time, he served as the President of the American Heart Association's Board of Directors, Los Angeles chapter. John was a computer programming pioneer, and Spectrum became a corporate platform for him to develop solutions for Fortune 100 companies with mainframe technology. In his retirement he dove into a passion for golf and bridge, which he added to his longtime hobbies of computer programming, sailing, skiing, travel, amateur photography, and joke-telling. He played the banjo, ukulele, spoons and was a lover of barbershop quartet, dixieland jazz, big band music, and opera. John Toellner had a practical mind coupled with an effective vocabulary. He used to say a lot of practical things which promoted him to self-publish a booklet entitled, "My Father Used to Say," dedicated to his three children (visit http://www.myfatherusedtosay.com for details). Of the abundance of advice he gave, "minimize regrets" and "things that get done immediately, get done" and "compensation follows contributions" are a few that have stuck with his kids, who hope the same will trickle down to the grandkids. A private interment was held, with military honors, at the Los Angeles National Cemetery on July 3. Family and friends gathered in the evening to tell stories and jokes in celebration of John's life. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation in his memory to the American Heart Association ( http://honor.americanheart.org/goto/papa-john ) or by mail to American Heart Association P.O. Box 742030 LA 90074.
