William 'Bill' Graham Tobin
July 5, 1943 - Jan. 24, 2021
With his wife of 54 years by his side, Bill Tobin passed away after a 10 year battle with Multiple System Atrophy.
Bill was born in Portland to John and Alice Tobin of West Linn. His early career years were spent managing his family's jewelry store (the first one established in Oregon in 1892), Burmeister and Andresen Jewelers in Oregon City. After marrying Ellen Youel in 1966 and the sale of the family store in 1967, Bill spent 36 years at Boise Cascade in a variety of positions. Bill loved Jesus, family time, boating in the San Juan Islands, fishing rivers and lakes, the Mariners, and Trail Blazers. His gentle spirit and sense of humor live on in those who survive him, Ellen; his boys, Toby (Kirstan) and Travis (Ann); and grandchildren, Kendall, Riley, Bristol, and Carter.
All are welcome to a celebration of Bill's life at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, May 22, 2021, at Beaverton Christian Church, 13600 S.W. Allen Blvd, Beaverton, OR 97005.
