The Associated Press and Tribune Reports
A former Seymour man critically injured in last March’s deadly tornado outbreak has died from complications of his injuries.
Alvin “Ted” Tolbert, 71, died Tuesday at Mercy Hospital in Fairfield, Ohio, about 10 months after he and his wife, Brenda, were injured when a tornado wrenched them from their home in the Ripley County town of Holton and flung them into a field.
Both suffered a broken neck, but Brenda Tolbert recovered from her injuries. Alvin Tolbert had been on life support since the March 2 storm.
He was born in Seymour, where his two sisters survive.
Darlene Oathout said her brother was always strong.
“It’s still hard to think he’s gone,” Oathout said. “He was such a strong and a good person.”
