Blaine married the love of his life, Beverly (Hopper) Tolle, on May 30, 1969, in Hot Springs, South Dakota.

After his graduation from Windfall, IN High School in 1963, he entered the US Navy. He was stationed at Quantico Naval Base in Virginia for the duration of his enlistment. He returned home to Windfall, IN in 1967, and then began his college career.

He attended Marion College for one year, and then he transferred to Kansas City College and Bible School in Overland Park, KS. He graduated in 1974 with a Bachelor degree in Theology. He then spent a number of years in ministry and education before moving back home to Windfall, IN. He spent the remainder of his working life in the service industry. He served as a Sunday school teacher, church treasurer and church board member in his local church.

Blaine and Beverly were blessed with three children. Jonathan Mark was born in 1970, Beth Ann was born in 1973 and Seth David was born in 1978. Over the years, their family has expanded to include their spouses and seven grandchildren. Jonathan and Lana (Onks), Beth and Chad (Samons) and Seth and Jenna (Combs).

He is survived by his siblings, Marlene (Gene) Alberson, Darcel (Mary) Tolle, Karen Sharp, Harold (Linda) Tolle and his sister-in-law Phyllis Tolle.

Spending time with his family and friends was the highlight of his life, and he kept things lively wherever he went with his sense of humor and his love of puns. He was a faithful servant of his Lord, and we are confident that he is now in his heavenly home. He will be greatly missed by us all.

So very sorry for your loss! Blaine was a perfect example of what a Christian should be. I never heard him say one derogatory thing about anyone. Always optimistic and a very good influence. He will be sadly missed, but Heaven has gained a wonderful Christian!

He was the best neighbor... so full of life and love. He always had a smile on his face and kind words to say no matter what was going on. He impacted our lives in such a mighty way. He will be thought of often and missed greatly.

Our family is so saddened by the loss of Blaine. We were so blessed by their wonderful friendship and shared many happy times together in Duncan. He was a wonderful teacher to several of our kids. We will always cherish his memory and will be praying for Beverly and the family. What a reunion awaits us.

When Chad married Beth, we were blessed to make many memories with you all. Blaine was gifted in interspersing fun with serious conversation. But truly, you could always see he had a heart to bless others. He was a good man and we are so glad our paths crossed with your family. Many prayers through your journey of grief.

I am shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of another dear friend! A number of years ago Blaine shared ministry with us at the Duncan Bible Missionary Church (he as a faithful teacher at Duncan Christian School)! He was a delight to be around, and though in recent years we had few occasions to be together, I will always cherish his friendship and delightful personality! Heaven gets sweeter with each departure! Love and prayers are sent to his loving family!
