Please pray for the repose of the soul of Michael Toscano, who passed away from an aneurysm he suffered on Friday evening. Michael is one of four sons of Prep benefactors Paulette and Vincent Toscano (SFP Class of 1953). Their eldest son Stephen passed away from a heart attack in November of 2010.
Vincent Toscano (who passed away in 2011) was inducted into the Prep’s Hall of Fame in 2005 and Paulette Toscano was named an Honorary Alumnus in 2008. In the fall of of 2003, Vincent paid a visit to Brother Leonard and said to him, “Brother, God has been very good to me. It’s time now to give back.” And that was the start of The Paulette and Vincent Toscano Scholarship Fund at St. Francis Prep.
In addition to tuition scholarships, over the past several years, Paulette and Vincent have given tens of thousands to other Prep students and families in need of financial assistance, and they are also major supporters of the capital campaign to help fund the Prep’s modernization efforts.
Michael was married to Heather and lived in Solebury, PA, and, as far as we know, he had one child.
He was the President of Paulaur Corp. (the firm founded by his father Vincent).
