MADISON - James Raymond Tollers, age 78, passed away on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at Oakwood Village West. He was born a triplet on Sept. 19, 1942, in Superior, Wis., the son of Rudolph and Opal (Jodell) Tollers.
James was a member of Lutheran Church of the Living Christ, an usher at the Civic Center, a proud Cub Scout leader and a Mason. He loved to travel all over the country, liked fishing, archery and playing cards, and enjoyed outdoor sports. James was a weaver and a potter. Having a knack for growing tomatoes, he was widely known at Oakwood as the "tomato man." What he loved most about his pottery, weaving and growing of tomatoes was that he always had something to give to people. He had a spark and always enjoyed whatever he was doing.
James is survived by his brother, Vincent (Martha); sister, Kim (Linda Olver); and many nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; and brothers, Warren (Barbara), Joseph, Paul, Gary (Susan) and Jeffrey (Victor Sabido).
Visitation and service were held at LUTHERAN CHURCH OF THE LIVING CHRIST, 110 N. Gammon Road, Madison, on May 29, 2021, with the Rev. Daniel Kowert presiding. Burial will be at Forest Home Cemetery in Fifield, Wis.
