Dear Family, I am sorry to hear about the passing of Tobey. My sincere sympathy is extended to his mother, wife, sons, grandchildren, siblings and other family members. One of the items we share is being the Scoutmaster of Troop 103. Please be assured of my prayers for Tobey and his family. God Bless!

Dear Ruth & Family, Tobey's passing has left a giant hole in all of our hearts. He will be dearly missed by all of us here at Schmuck Lumber. I still can't believe he will no longer be here to bring my kitchen and bath designs to life for my customers. His skills and knowledge on the job have helped so many people attain their dream projects through the years. His passing has truly left a void no one else can fill. Rest in peace, Tobey. Your work here has been well done. Kim Sterner Schmuck Lumber Company
