Richard George Tobias, 63

Richard George Tobias,  born 11/4/1949 in Hopkins, MN. 

Rich left us suddenly of a heart attack on 11/23/2012 in Elk River, MN.  He left us much too young with so many plans in his future having just retired from a long career of land surveying. 

Rich was a very proud Navy veteran (’68-’72), loved being outdoors fishing, hiking, cabin life, grilling year-round and loved sitting on his new deck watching the sunset.

Survived by wife of 28 years DeAnne (De), sons Wade (Abby), Kevin, and Dennis (Cherie,) and daughter Megan (Jim); six grandchildren, Kayleigh, Peyton, Tori, Courtney, Ari, and Cadence; sisters Shirley (Lee) and Sharon (Richard); many nieces, nephews, cousins and a multitude of friends as well as by his beloved Bassett Hound, Daisy May.

Funeral service will be Sunday, December 2nd at 1:30 p.m. Central Lutheran Church, 1103 School Street, Elk River 55330.

Memorials to the family preferred.
