My family lived in Ft. Defiance from 1954-56, having moved there from New York City. My father, Benjamin Lewis, was Chief of Staff and Surgery at the BIA hospital there. My mother was Esther. My brothers were Jon and Mac. All are now dead. My best friend was Wilson Naswood.

My parents got to be very good friends with Tobe and stayed in touch for some time even after we left for California. I remember Tobe as a congenial, kindly man, never too busy or self-important to spend a moment. I am now 70 and live in Northern California, but I remember my days in Arizona and Tobe fondly. I had no idea he had lived so long and died just last October. I just happened on his obit this evening through my occasional venture into the online Navajo Times, where some links ultimately led me to the notice. Tobe's long life was worthy of his character as I knew it as a child. I am glad to have encountered him again, notwithstanding under these sad circumstances.

Celebrating a life well lived! Gosh---Tobe was one of the kindest and most gentle of gentlemen. Somehow, we just thought (hoped) he would live forever. We love you all, and we are so sad with you at this great loss and heaven's great gain.
