Gregory John Toth, age 82, died Thursday, December 22, 2022, after a lengthy battle with Multiple Myeloma. Greg was born at home in Cleveland’s South Side to the late Blase and Stephanie (Froncek) Toth. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Darlene, and three daughters, Kathe (Dan), Jessica (Michael Kim) and Liana (John).

Grandfather of Alicia, Stephanie and Melissa; Great Grandfather of Erika, Emily, Haley, Zackery and Samantha. Uncle to numerous nieces and nephews. Best friend of Joe Evanko (Sarah) for over 40 years and honorary uncle to Steve, Angela and Adam.
Greg was a man of many interests including photography, literature, art, travel, nature, and animals. He served as Vice President of the Cleveland Photographic Society and later as President of the Friends of the Strongsville Library, which allowed him to indulge his love of books.
He was a loyal fan of the Cleveland Indians and a reluctant fan of the Cleveland Browns. Smart, well read and witty, he was excellent company in any situation.
His stoicism, strength and will to live were truly inspiring. His compassion and concern for those around him never wavered, even as his illness progressed.
A memorial gathering will be held at a future date. Arrangements have been entrusted to Slone & Co. Funeral Directors. Please contact the family through the guestbook for information.
