It is with extreme sadness to report the loss of another great showman, Johnny M Tolve, owner of Tolve Presentations. John passed away at his home in Florida unexpectedly over the weekend. Most recently, his show was operating in South Florida before taking a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our thoughts and prayers are with John's friends and family.
John's official obituary is as follows:
John Mario Tolve, Jr., 63, Lyndhurst native, passed away in his Florida home on Sunday March 22, 2020. Beloved husband to the late Laura (nee Winkler) Tolve, brother to the late Steven Tolve Sr. and the late Linda McCafferty. He is survived by his three loving daughters Jessica, Amanda and Danielle. His memory lives on in them, his three grandchildren, his brother Vincent, nephew Steven Jr., sons-in-law Robert and Christian, and many more who cherished him.
John was blessed to work for himself, owning and operating the carnival business his parents, John Sr and Carmella, started. He proudly grew this enterprise for more than 50 years, working with his best friend and brother, Steven Sr. He married Laura at the age of 25, and the two raised three amazing daughters. John traveled many roads in his life, making friends and good times along the way.
Services are private and under the direction of Ippolito-Stellato Funeral Home, 425 Ridge Road, Lyndhurst, New Jersey.
