My fondest memories of Toby are sitting outside Ketter Hall, come rain or shine, sharing a cigarette. We discussed anything from teaching, mechanics of solids, hockey, Louis L'Amour, Toby's family, his time at Princeton, his farm in Vermont, my son and family. Toby was incredibly generous with his time, his experience, and yes, his cigarettes. He was an amazing story teller. He seemed to relive the moments as he told the story many years later. Certain stories would always bring tears to his...

Dear Patty,
Our prayers are with you and your dear family. We hope the pasage of time will ease your grief and may your faith temper your sorrow. With deepest sympathy and love, Mary & Chuck Rice
