In memoriam: ZOLTAN TOTH

By Carol Burtin Fripp, Co-President

I am saddened to report that ZOLTAN TOTH, long-time Director of the LPOA/LRA, has died age 88.

Zoltan, then living on Astor Avenue, joined our Board in the mid 1970s, and was actively involved in the Traffic Committee until he became ill about ten years ago. An engineer who fled to Canada during the Hungarian uprising in 1956, Zoltan worked in the Planning area at Toronto City Hall for thirty years. On retirement he applied his knowledge, energy, and high standards to work for greater traffic safety in Leaside. In his spare time, he was a master gardener and active member of the Ashbridge’s Bay Yacht Club. He was also a very nice man.

He is survived by his wife Margaret, who now lives at the Revera retirement home on 8 The Donway East.
