History Established in 1912, Toale Brothers was originally purchased by the Toale family in 1948 by brothers George E. and Jack P. Toale. Their sister Catherine Toale Christian-the first female licensed embalmer in the State of Florida-joined them later. As the families grew, the operation expanded to cover Sarasota and Bradenton. George brought his sons Curtis and Robert into the business and Jack brought his son, David. For over 30 years, David, Curtis and Robert were responsible for the management of the company with the help of Comptroller/General Manager, Myron Nickel. Since joining the firm in 1979, Myron has been integral in the day-to-day operations. In 2006, Robert's sons Jason and Jeffrey took over management. Second generation Sarasotans, both Jason and Jeffrey are married and active in the community. Jason holds a Bachelor's degree in management information systems from the University of South Florida and an MBA from Rollins College with concentrations in finance and management. Jeffrey is a graduate of the University of South Florida with a Bachelors degree in finance. Both have completed their mortuary science education. They practice the Toale Brothers business values, which have been handed down through the generations: Respect, Service and Integrity.
