Toby Herges. Your kindness and perseverance marked you. Marked all of us that knew you. And now you’re home. Well done.

No words can describe Toby, one of the "good ones", with a smile that was so infectious, it lit up the room. All my thoughts and prayers to entire Herges family.

I just heard from a friend about the passing of Toby. He was truly a unique individual who I saw grow up to be a man. He has been a survivor all of these years and was very happy for him when he married and then became a father and have a nice family. I know a soulful spirit like Toby will always be in our memories for a long time. My condolences go out to everyone in his family and hope they know how much Toby was loved by us. And God holds him in his arms now.

To Christine, Barb & Butch and family, Toby has taught us all how to handle adversity and our heath problems, He never complained and told me after my own health scare this is Gods plan for us. He was the bravest man I ever had the privilege of knowing. I am proud to call him my friend. We are all better for knowing him. When I would see him at Tumble Inn He would always ask about my family. Toby is gone but he will live forever in his children and his family. God Bless the entire Herges family. May Toby Rest In Peace. The Tumble INN will not be the same without him. Thank You for being my friend.

Please accept our condolences that we send to Toby’s entire family. We were introduced to them as the in-laws of the Matthew Leskis‘ family. Upon meeting him, we knew him to be a kind, caring and generous man. He will be missed by the whole community.♥️

I had the pleasure of meeting Toby after mass one day just after his first surgery. Christine wanted me to check on something for him and I had the pleasure of checking in on this amazing man many times over the next 22 years. As Dan Rodawig said, he never complained once and was always asking me to check in on Christine, even if he was suffering at the time. Toby is my hero for how he lived life, loved God and cared for his family. He experienced many miracles and now he is with God and in peace. I pray that Christine, Macey Kate, Mallory, Tobin, Tate and the rest of his family and friends can find some of that peace knowing he is not suffering any more. Love you guys.

I’ll never forget standing in the Saint Matthew’s gym ~20 years ago at coffee and donuts after mass, and Toby announced that he had his cancer diagnosis. Immediately, he said it was a part of God’s plan for him. I couldn’t comprehend it back then. It sucked, quite honestly. Through all the prayer vigils, the trips to Mayo, the last rites, the treatments, the remission, the reemergence of cancer, the strokes, the last rites (again, again), he was an absolute warrior and didn’t complain about the hand he was dealt. It was never about him when you talked to him, it was always about, “How are you doing? Can I get you anything?” His selflessness and his Faith were absolute perfect testimonies of God’s will and God’s plan. Right there, for all of us to witness. It’s really difficult to understand. Yet it’s so simple. Toby’s strength, his resolve, his fight, and his unwavering Faith are something to behold for us all. Thank you, Toby Herges for showing us the way we should all be. Christine, Macey, Mallory, Tobin, Tate, and the family, may God be with you, and with us, as we mourn. And may our tears be eventually turned into dancing, for we know that Toby is having a catch right now with the angels! ⚾️ Godspeed and God bless. ✝️❤️
