In lieu of flowers, memorials are encouraged to Metro Police Christmas Charities. You may donate via their facebook page.

**What is a mobile visitation? This is just as it sounds. Friends will be directed once entering our parking lot  by several of our staff members. From your vehicle, you will be able to sign the guestbook, receive a memorial brochure, visit very briefly with the family, and view Toby (If you choose) ALL from the comfort of your vehicle. With the COVID restrictions in Davidson County still being only at 25 people, this allows more flexibility with numbers, while still being able to pay your respects. We realize this is very different, but has worked very efficiently these past few months.

      Randall & Linda, How I often have wished that we could live those days over again. Thank you for being good friends and for being such positive influences in Toby’s life. I had forgotten about that bike trip! We were a little wiser than they gave us credit for. We had a good time on that trip. So glad we got to enjoy that with them. The two of you and Zach are a part of so many fun memories. Those two weren’t always easy but they grew up to become men we could be proud of. Thank you so very much for your prayers. Much love to both of you.

    Sweet Toby, my heart is aching. I pray you are at peace. Nat didn’t believe the news when I told her. It doesn’t seem real. Heart open ❤️

    Thank you for the friendship you gave me.. I appreciated it and thank you for being there for me. You were the real deal and one of a kind.. A true friend. I will miss our talks and funny texts and hold on to our memories we had. Like everyone else I will never understand why. I will just keep praying for your Momma, Hannah and the family. I pray God provides them with comfort and peace. Rest in peace Toby 💙

    Christy, I didn’t know your Toby, but I just wanted to say how much I hurt for you in this loss of your child. The video was precious- he was a handsome young man. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    I really think it’s starting to hit me, that your gone and there’s nothing I can do about it. I have so many memories with you. I can remember during all of our racing years I didn’t wanna ride with anyone else but you. In your truck. I could go on forever. I hate that we haven’t seen or talked in a few years and everyone went their separate ways. I’ll forever cherish all the memories I have with you. This just shows you never know when it’s going to be your last. Rest easy big cuzzzo. Hug Big Nanny, Aunt T and Mike for me. I know it’s gorgeous up there. Send your mom signs and let her know your there. We will take care of her and get her through this, I promise. This isn’t a GOOD BYE it’s a SEE YOU LATER! I love you Toby! You truly will be missed by many!

    I had just recently met Toby or Big T as I had started calling him through Sunbelt. It would have never happened had the backhoe not of broken down. It was a few Saturdays back that he called and said I’m headed your way and it was taking time he was spending with his girlfriend, they were both friendly and warm and here I was the guy complaining about the equipment malfunction. Then a few days later I called him again, over all I had four or five encounters with Big T and about 7-8 hours of his time. What did I learn???
    I learned I could learn from that kid, I’m old enough to be his dad and he had patience, didn’t let anything in the line of “work” get to him, Thant is what I could have learned from him. He took care of his tools, he liked to converse, joke and “chew the cud” as we call it where I come from.
    This morning I called Sunbelt to see about the “machine” again, they told me about Toby, I was stunned, shocked and disappointed I wouldn’t get to sit and ask questions again while he politely answered while calmly working on the machine. I didn’t know any of his family except that brief encounter with Hannah(?) his girlfriend, but I know he loved and missed his Dad, he liked country cooking and loved turning a wrench. I know his “moving on” will leave a huge hole of emptiness in the family circle, because I barely knew him and feel the loss. From my front porch view, he left this world a little better than he found it. Prayers to the family for peace and comfort only God can give.

      Thank you so very much for your kind words and memories, Clint. He sure did miss his dad and I am trusting that they are now together watching over me. He was my world, the only thing that kept me together and going after we lost his dad. I was proud of the man he grew up to be and the pride he took in doing his job, whatever it might be, to the best of his ability. He was more than my son. He was the person I looked to for advice when I made big decisions and the one person I knew would always be there for me. Knowing he left this world a better place warms my heart. Life on this earth will never be the same but I must trust that God knows best. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for taking time to convey your condolences.

      Christy, Toby’s mother
