Ormond (Buzz) Toles, 96, of Sutter Creek, Calif., beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather, passed peacefully on April 3, at home, with family at his side. Buzz is survived by his three children, Judi Bartholomew, of Sutter Creek, Thomas Toles, of Stockton, Calif., and Susan O’Hare, of Corona, Calif. Buzz had 10 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and 14 great-great-grandchildren.
Ormond served in the U.S. Navy and worked for 44 years for National Cash Register. He was the owner of a small business in Amador County for 20 years, supplying and repairing cash registers for local businesses. He was a charter member of the Sutter Creek Henry Clay Masonic Lodge and Seniors In Retirement. He loved to trout fish and travel and was a beekeeper in the 50’s for many years — hence the name, “Buzz.”
Services will be at Daneri’s Mortuary, at 415 Broadway, in Jackson, Calif., on April 25, at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Hospice, who assisted the family after he returned home from Sutter Amador Hospital.
