We wish to inform you of the passing on Sunday evening
of Steven Toscano following a massive coronary he suffered on Saturday.
He is the oldest of four sons of Prep benefactors Paulette and Vincent
Toscano (SFP Class of 1953). Steven was 49 years of age and he is
survived by his wife Lisa and their lovely twin daughters, Mary and
Olivia, who are both college freshmen.
Steven served as a Vice
President at Paulaur Corporation which was founded by his father Vincent
in 1980. Paulaur is known for its specialty carbohydrate products and
is also the world's largest manufacturer of "time-release" products for
the pharmaceutical industry.
Vincent Toscano was inducted into the Prep's Hall of
Fame in 2005 and Paulette Toscano was named an Honorary Alumnus in 2008.
They live in Princeton Junction, NJ, and in the fall of 2003 Vincent
paid a visit to Brother Leonard Conway at the Prep and said to him at
the time, "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 which currently provides at least
four (4) full tuition scholarships for deserving Prep students during
any given academic year--at least one freshman, one sophomore, one
junior, and one senior.
In addition, 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.
offer a prayer for the repose of the soul of Steven Toscano and keep
the entire Toscano family in your thoughts and prayers as well. Steven's
wake and funeral are scheduled for Thursday morning in Doylestown, PA.
(See details below.) May he rest in peace!
