Rev. Natanael Del Toro Melendez, age 77, went home to be with his Savior on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. He was born on December 17, 1939 in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico to the late Isidro Del Toro and Maria Del Toro- Melendez. Natanael loved spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Most of all he loved the Lord and faithfully served his Savior for close to 67 years. Assuredly, the angels rejoiced at his arrival.

Nathaniel met and married the love of his life, Mrs. Lydia Reyes- Del Toro on October 10, 1959. They have been married for 58 years. From this union, a son and a daughter were born, Nathaniel Del Toro Jr. and Lydia Del Rio. He leaves behind five grandchildren, Priscilla Amy Rossi, Samuel Alexander Del Rio, Victoria Lydia Del Rio, Oscar M. Ramos, Christian Alejandro Del Toro. In addition, he leaves his beloved son-in-law, Samuel Del Rio, daughter-in-law Lucy Ramos-Toro, great son-in-law Frank R. Rossi.

Natanael Del Toro is survived by six brothers and eight sisters: Patria, Milagros, Melquisedec, Loyda, Nehemias, Ruben, Jacob, Orpha, Enock, Nydia, Esther, Damaris, Harris, and Madeline. Natanael was preceded in death by two brothers who passed at a very young age, his mother Maria Melendez and his father Isidro Del Toro. He will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.

Natanael Del Toro committed his heart to the Lord and was baptized with the Holy Spirit at 9 years of age. At age 13, he was baptized with water. At age 17, he began his studies at the Bible Institute. He was called into full time ministry as an ordained Pastor at 19. He served as a Pastor in Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, Toledo, Cleveland, Puerto Rico, and Astoria. The souls he led to the Lord and lives he touched are countless. He trusted God completely and his faith moved mountains. He was selfless, loving, and was a great man of God. There is no doubt, his legacy will continue here on Earth by his beloved family who will honor his life by following his example. Assuredly, the angels rejoiced at his arrival because we know that "All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose".
