Obituary for Paul C. Tobey Sr.

Paul C. Tobey Sr. of Delta Township, MI, walked into the arms of the Lord on July 31, 2019 in Lansing, MI at the age of 77. He was born November 1, 1941 in Gary, Indiana, son of Chester and Pauline (McKaughan) Tobey. Paul was a Physical Therapist with the State of Michigan, Eaton County School District and in private care. He was a lifelong fan of both the Chicago Bears and Cubs. Since retirement, he has enjoyed his hobbies including collecting toy trains, a large Civil War book collection, working puzzles with daughters and grandchildren, gardening, and tinkering with things.
Paul loved the Lord and was dedicated to South Church for as long as he was able to attend. Paul and Ellie studied and read scripture together every day. His faith and love for the Lord sustained he and Ellie in the worst of times, but Paul had a positive outlook and wonderful sense of humor at all times.
Paul is survived by his wife of 57 years, Eleanor, son Paul (Cheryl) Jr., daughters Pamela (Brian) Cone, Tamara Sellek (Jim Phillips); 9 grandchildren, and sister Beverly Richardson.
Paul had a special love for his grandchildren who all adored him and relished the time he spent playing with them.
