Because ALS affects the central nervous system and makes it difficult for
the muscles to receive messages from the brain there would become a
time for Dan that he would no longer have use of muscles.

He was quoted as saying "when I can 't play anymore, then I will go." the disease eventually left him unable to speak and unable to play guitar.

On Feb. 25, Toler passed away in his sleep after his two-year battle.

Monday, Feb 25th, 2013 - Official Facebook page post:
