Robert E. Toyn was born on April 22, 1927, in Ogden. He served honorably in the Navy during World War II. He married his sweetheart, Joy, in 1948. They've been together going on 69 years, having multiplied and replenished the earth with six children, 26 grandchildren and 37 great-grandchildren.
He was a school teacher at Valley Elementary in Huntsville. Together Bob and Joy built a successful nursery business. They retired to enjoy a less strenuous life, but it didn't quite work out that way.
Bob recently designed and moved into a new house. He's usually in the basement, single-handedly hanging sheetrock, or in the yard hefting rocks, pipes, or sod.
Come say "howdy" on April 22, 2017, from 4 to 6 pm at his (new) home: 129 W. 1820 South, in Perry.
He's agreed stop working just long enough to greet everyone.
