OBITUARY: Toby Brian Engel

Toby Brian Engel, 44, of Windsor, Colo., passed away Oct. 14, 2019.

Toby was born Nov. 10, 1974 in Newton. He was the devoted son of Charles and Sue (Hinkle) Engel. After graduating from Newton High School, Toby attended Kansas State University where he graduated in May 1998 and was forever a dedicated Wildcat.
Toby was the beloved husband of Jody (Habel) Engel. The two married in Saratoga, Wyo., on July 13, 2002. They lived in Evergreen, Colo., where they welcomed their children Delaney Rose and Brogan Christopher. The Engels have called Windsor their home for the last 11 years. Toby was a loving, devoted father who thought his children hung the moon. He will forever be remembered for the joy and love he brought to his family and friends.
Toby is survived by his parents Chuck and Sue; wife Jody; children Brogan and Delaney; brother Tye, his wife, Holly; and was the coolest uncle to numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his favorite uncle Larry who welcomed Toby with open arms and a deck of poker cards.
Toby’s life was a precious gift, and he filled our lives with laughter. His wit, charm and generosity made the world a brighter place. He enjoyed traveling to the ocean, deep-sea fishing and spending many hours snorkeling. We will forever miss his talents behind the grill, keeping all around him full and happy.
A celebration of Toby’s life was on Oct. 21, 2019 at Bethel Lutheran Church in Windsor, Colorado. The service will begin at 1:00 pm with a reception following.
