Toby was a very special person, one who was loved very much! Toby came into my daughter's life when she was about 2 years old. Although he and Tony were not officially married he was still my daughter's stepfather and a huge influence on her life. Thank you to Toby's parents for creating such a phenomenal person. My condolences to out to all who loved Toby. He is truly irreplaceable. There will forever be a hole in our family that Toby once filled. With much love and respect.

Toby, thru the years I have lost contact with you, since Red Lobster.
I miss you so much! We got close at the Lob, and I miss us laughing in the kitchen alley. Remember you and I sang at Jane’s wedding?! The best times!
Toby, I will miss you forever.
I love you, Robin

I worked with Toby for many years at Red Lobster. He made working there a joy! Even when things where over the top busy Toby would give me a split second look or say something in an odd way and we would share a chuckle. I can't imagine my time at Red Lobster without him.

Thank You, Toby, for all the Joy and Delight you brought to each of the individuals we care for, and for that same Joy and Delight to each coworker at CARS. As you shared yourself and joy with others, you are a true hero! Love and prayers, knowing you are lifted to Heaven with Joyous Angels delighting in your smile and laughter. You will be forever missed.
