Toby Lee Bosley 1977 – 2018

On April 26, 2018, Toby was called home to Heaven. His passing has left a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. Toby was a loving father to Isabella, age 8, and Emily, age 2, who were the lights of his life. Toby was an entrepreneur and most recently the owner of Watkins Trading on Middlebranch Ave. He started this business from his garage and over the years it grew into a successful venture until 2017. He loved his store, his customers and selling - he was a great salesman! Unfortunately, Toby suffered from addiction that took his life at the young age of 40 years old. He tried so hard to overcome these things, but lost his fight after many years of battle. Even in the last days of his struggle, he still managed to help people less fortunate than him. His willingness to help others was inspiring.

He was preceded in death by his father, David L. Bosley; grandparents, David and Gladys Watkins and Omar D. Bosley. He is survived by his daughters, Isabella and Emily; mother, Jane Bosley, of Louisville; grandmother, Frances Bosley of North Canton; brother, Todd (Amy) Bosley of Louisville; sister Tami (Scott) Rike of Bucyrus; nieces, Lauren and Morgan Bosley; and nephews, David and Jax Rike. A fund has been established for his children to help with their upcoming expenses. Many of his past customers and friends understand the need and know Bella and Emily were the most important people in his life. Toby will be missed. In lieu of flowers, donations for his daughters can be made at either of the Bargain Barn locations. The Bargain Barn, 9635 Ravenna Ave NE, Louisville, OH 44641, 330-875-3185 or OH 44705.

There are no calling hours and a private service and burial will take place in Union Cemetery. Services entrusted to the Mark R. Vrabel Funeral Home, North Canton, 330-452-4041.

The first love of my life. How handsome and funny you were. Generous and caring. You worked so hard as a show of love. Hugs for gratitude. Such a good hearted guy. Had a hand for anyone who needed it and a shoulder too. This is how we will remember. With a loving heart when he was himself and at his best. A family man who was grateful for every moment and every chance to be more.

Toby will be greatly missed. I have enjoyed many fun times with him and the Bosley family. I always admired him being an entrepreneur. He was always successful at whatever he decided to do. He touched many lives in his endeavors and extended respect and love.

Toby was a very loving, kind, caring and generous individual. He helped numerous charities and gave our young people items for fund raisers. He loved to help others. Even as his addiction grew and troubled his mind it could never take his generosity away him. Your laughter and smile will be missed by many! Rest in Toby, love Momma Jill
