Toby Elijah was a wonderful young man who had dreams and aspirations to be a better man in this cruel world. He battled demons that were stronger than he himself ever knew. He will be remembered for his big smile, his infectious laugh, his spontaneity, that bigger than life personality and a big heart that he wore on his sleeve. His passion for the people he loved and trusted. And his gorgeous blue eyes that he knew could get him whatever he wanted. He had so much potential in his short life.
He loved playing football and loved knowing the guys carrying the ball needed him to have their backs and make a lane. He also loved playing baseball and playing hind catcher, the “Coal Train” behind the plate. He loved wrestling, motocross, motorcycles, 4-wheelers & big loud trucks. He loved big & he loved hard.
He was trying to find his place. He worked at Wal-Mart, Lowes, Ideal Distributing and most recently at the Mullens Moose Lodge.
Services will be 5PM Thursday, January 2, 2020 at Melton Mortuary Chapel. Friends may visit with the family at 4PM.
