For those that knew Tobey knew that he had a kind heart and fun-loving personality.  You could always count on Tobey as a supportive friend and for his unconditional love.


Tobey is survived by his girlfriend Carrie Payne, mother –  Alicia Tobey Morgan,  father –  Rock Morgan, sisters – Brandee Herrera and Ashlee Martindale (Curtis), brother – Jeremy Johnston (Rachel) , niece – Payton Giehm, nephew – Lawson Herrera, nephew – Harley Johnston, niece – Jaycee Johnston, niece – Morgan Martindale  and grandmother – June Kilkenny, along with many other aunts, uncles, cousins and relatives.


He was proceeded in death by his grandmother, Ann Shaw, Tobey, grandfathers Roger “Gene” Tobey, John Morgan, and John Hunt.  Aunts – Linda Tobey, Sheryl Glover and Lynda Morgan, and Cousin Thomas Glover and Ward Tobey.

    God called his angel boy home ⚾️ Tobey was the most beautiful soul. He had a type of energy that radiated a special kind of love. A love that made your heart dance and filled your soul with happiness. His love for each person was so beautiful that he made you feel like the most important person in the world and to Tobey you truly were. It was a one of a kind, strong, bold, amazing love. The bible teaches us about love. 1 John 4:7 tells us "God is Love" and we hear it again in Proverbs 17:17 "A friend loves at all times." Tobey was a perfect example of God's love. Tobey loved life. He loved his family. He loved his friends. He loved sports. He loved animals. He loved The Lord. Tobey had incredible gifts. He was a talented athlete. He learned to ride a bike at 2. He could slam dunk at 15. He the ability to read the other players and make plays that wowed the crowd. He was a team player and loved his teammates. Tobey was inventive - he invented a solar power cell phone charger at 10, chicken wing fishing bait at 20, and most recently he brought back the go ped which included a head light and cup holder. Tobey was adventurous. He was always up to something, camping, fishing, hunting, searching for arrowheads or mining for gold. Tobey was brilliant. He had perfect attendance and grades, he loved to read the Guinness book of world records and knew every sport stat and player. Tobey had a style. When he was younger he would wear his cowboy hat and boots with everything, including shorts and sweats. As he got older the cowboy hat was replaced a baseball cap. Tobey truly was like no other. He knew how to live life and he loved it. When you smell rain on a freshly cut baseball field, hear the crack of a bat or the beat of a basketball, feel the warmth of the sun on your skin or the heat of a campfire, know that it is Tobey watching over you. I love you with my whole heart Tobey Hunt Morgan. Thank you for being you, my very best friend, my precious baby brother. "Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God." Philippians 1:3

    To Rock, Alicia, and Tobey's family: I was so sorry to learn of Tobey's passing. I hope you will find some solace in knowing that your many friends share your special sorrow and wish you comfort for the days ahead. While I didn't know Tobey, if he is anything like his dad, he was a fine and honorable person.

    I met Tobey as a five year old playing t-ball. We played sports with and against each other from that time until we were 18 and I was fortunate enough to call Tobey my friend. Tobey's laugh was contagious and he was always up for adventure. Spending almost everyday in the Summer together for six years will let you get to know someone really well. Tobey was a great person and a good friend. I'm sorry for your loss Alicia and Rock but know that Tobey was a genuine person and a good guy.
