Dead soldier's parting gift: $100,000 party
By Bob Sipchen

LOS ANGELES TIMES

Before he died, Jeffrey Toczylowski earmarked money from his savings and insurance policies to assist friends and help cousins with college tuition and to fund a scholarship.

LAS VEGAS — Shortly after Jeffrey "Toz" Toczylowski's last mission in Iraq a year ago this month, friends received a message.

"If you are getting this e-mail, it means that I have passed away," the missive said. "No, it's not a sick Toz joke, but a letter I wanted to write in case this happened."

The Army Special Forces captain, 30, said he would like family and friends to attend his burial at Arlington National Cemetery, "but understand if you can't make it."

The message, distributed by a fellow Green Beret after Toczylowski's family had been notified of his death, added: "There will also be a party in Vegas with a 100k to help pay for travel, room and a party."
