Toby Price

Born – November 10, 1929 - Died – August 26, 2018

Toby Norman Price went to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 10:28 p.m.

Toby was preceded in death by his wife, travel partner and great love of 52 years, Sonia, by his mother Elizabeth Price, father Toby Price, sisters Pearl and Jeanette, and his brother, Rodney. He is survived by his 4 children; daughters, Susan (Murphy) of Summerfield, FL and Lori (Dodge) of Twain, CA and sons Toby, Jr. (wife Jody) of Aromas, CA and Steven (wife Maria Isabel) of Davis and his grandchildren; Michael, Jessica, Lesley, Steven, Zachary, Adam, Luke, April and Violet.

Toby was particularly proud of his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and of his many nieces and nephews. With his military and civilian career as an FAA certified airframe and powerplant inspector and instructor, he took his family all over the world. His love of his country (recipient of the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Commendation Metal), military history, aviation and all things automotive took second place to his love for his family. He was known for his teasing sense of humor and his ability to make people comfortable in his company.

Toby’s final resting place will be the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery at 5810 Midway Road, Dixon, CA. An ‘full honors’ memorial will be held on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 11:00 AM at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery: 5810 Midway Road, Dixon, CA.

Because his favorite charity was Disabled American Veterans, please make donations to: www.dav.org.

We are very sorry to hear of Toby's passing. From 1969-1976 we were Toby and Sonia's neighbors directly across the street on Tea Place. They both were such wonderful people. Toby was gone much of the time we were neighbors. Nonetheless we did get know him and his unique and captivating personality. Today their wonderful family is a reflection of the wonderful job they did as parents. To the family we send our deepest sympathy for your loss. Just know that some day you (we) will all be together again. Sending our love and best wishes.Ray & Carol

Dear Susan, Steve, Toby 'Nornie"and Lori,We all loved your Dad! I spoke to him 3 weeks ago and even though he was in much pain, he still found a way to brighten my day with laughter, just like he did most times when we talked. He was a man I respected throughout my life and I saw him as a role model. Each of you have learned well from your Mom and Dad, you all are just as compassionate and caring and giving as they both were! You certainly have shared that compassion with me over the years! I have and I always will cherished how close each of you are to me...we have a special family, we will carry on! Love, Charlotte and Buddy

Dear Susan, Steve, Toby and Lori, Your Dad was a wonderful man. He was a gift from God. It is hard to return such a wonderful gift. Your Dad wrote in a letter to us: "My Riches are in the family I have inherited." He was so proud of all of you and felt very blessed. Romans 14, 7-8: For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies alone. If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. With deepest sympathy, Love, Bernie, Tobie and Bernie
