I have had the pleasure to work for Toby, he is truly a good man. He hired me as an employee, and I was and always have been treated like family. The Elsass family is such a beautiful family. I am so happy to have known such a beautiful man, whom treated everyone as family. Toby and Andy are probably have a good olde time laughing. Andy saying friends for life. I will never forget you Toby. I will continue to pray for your family. Rest In Peace Patricia Anderson

Neil and I are so sorry to her of Toby's passing. He always talked about his family especially Donnie and Ashley. He was so proud of you. We remember the bus trip Toby organized for all of us to go to Michigan to watch Ashley's college soccer team. My kids remember him as Santa Claus at the Christmas parties and my boss who always gave them gummy bears when they came into the office to visit. He was a very giving person. Prayers for all of you during this difficult time.

Michael and I extend our deepest condolences on Toby's passing. I'm so grateful I had the chance to speak with Toby very recently wherein he shared his love of his mom, his kids, Andy, and of hope. We had made plans to meet after Covid, but we will make a toast to better times. He was such a character and good visionary, who appreciated his employees and treated them well. The "4 queens" as he named us gals, will always remember him ! His family is wonderful, and we have so many memories including Toby as Santa at the Christmas parties. He cared for the kids so much. A fitting tribute above....loving his grandchildren. He will be missed, Michael and Rita Lazar
