Toby was a simple man, who was content with the small moments of everyday life. Although he went through many health struggles, he always had a joke, ready to make anyone laugh. When able, Toby enjoyed tinkering with things, taking them apart to figure out how they worked, and fishing. He coached baseball, loving the sport so much, that his CB Handle was “Mr. Baseball”. In addition to watching the news, Toby could be found cheering on Rusty Wallace during racing season. Family, however, was the most important facet of his life. He was proud of his brother and sons serving in the US Marine Corps, he supported his grandchildren in all of their extra-curricular activities, and was happy just spending time together.
In keeping with his wishes, Toby will be cremated. The family has entrusted Schlosser Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Wapakoneta to handle the arrangements.
