My dad and uncle both served with Toby at the Stafford Sheriff's office so as a very small child I was around him often. In those days the officers and their families spent lots of time together, celebrating holidays, cooking out and just visiting. Toby was an important part of our family and was one of the officers I can say taught me to respect my parents, the law and others. He was and will always be a role model I will keep in my heart forever. He was too young but any who knew him will keep his memory alive and share stories, thoughts and prayers of him. We miss you Toby ❤
