Toby! Wow....I can't believe I heard you went to Heaven! God must have needed a tough son of a gun! You and I had our differences but we always settled them! God bless you and I know you be smiling down on every one, stomping in your boots to the music! Rest in peace! 🍻

I was saddened to hear of Toby May's passing. Toby and I had a combative relationship as TKE brothers in college and we also had some really good times. I found these pictures of him from back in those days. My prayers for his loved ones. YITB Frank May

Dear Sandy:
To say Toby was "one of a kind" is an understatement - We know your many priceless memories will bring you comfort in the days ahead and we can always think of him saying, "What are we going to get in to today, Papaw?" Keeping you in prayer, always. Your extended family. The Arbogast, Russell, and Minnix families
