Daryel Gast of Toledo, age 76, passed away peacefully at Hospice of Northwest Ohio on Thursday November 30, 2017.
Born in Sandusky, Ohio to Ed and Jean Gast on January 19, 1941, Daryel graduated from Sandusky High School and Stautzenberger Business College. He served his country as a member of the Ohio National Guard. For more than 40 years, he was a Steel Hauling Dispatcher for Northern Steel Transport in Toledo. His passions included fishing, playing cards, gardening and visiting casinos with his wife and friends.
