Patty was an active member of the Oak Harbor community for over four decades. She was involved with the Oak Harbor Yacht Club, Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor, the Oak Harbor Garden Club, the Birthday Club, the Polly Harpole Hospital Guild at Whidbey Health, and was a devoted member of the New Leaf Board of Directors.

Captain Richard J. (Dick) Toft  
Captain USN (Ret.)

July 14, 1940 – May 4, 2021

New Leaf fondly remembers retired US Navy captain and longtime New Leaf board member and president Dick Toft, who passed away recently at age 80.

A beloved pillar of the Oak Harbor community, Toft's passing was marked by the Rotary Club of Oak Harbor, who dedicated their restored memorial bridge at City Beach (Windjammer Park) in downtown Oak Harbor in honor of Toft and other Oak Harbor Rotarians. 

The Rotary Memorial bridge being restored.

New Leaf remembers Dick Toft with warmth and gratitude for his service. New Leaf is honored to remember Toft with a memorial plaque at our office bench.
