t is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather, Toby Schnoor, on December 19, 2022, just short of his 95th birthday.
Toby is survived by his wife, Ray, after almost 71 years of loving marriage. He is also survived by his children, Jeffrey Schnoor (Bruce) and Carla Nepon (Jack), and his grandchildren, Taryn and David Nepon. He was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Anne Schnoor, and his younger brother, Jack Schnoor.
Toby inherited his father’s sense of humour; he loved to play and watch sports (especially the New York Yankees) and was keenly interested in politics. He was a man of few, but well chosen, words. Above all, Toby was devoted to his family. He loved his wife and family with all his heart and took special pride and joy in his children and grandchildren. He was the rock on which his immediate – and his extended – family depended: he was a source of knowledge and wisdom and a link to the past and those we have lost. He leaves a gap that cannot be filled and memories that we will cherish forever.
A graveside funeral was held at the Shaarey Zedek Cemetery on December 22, 2022. Pallbearers were Jeffrey Schnoor, Jack Nepon, David Nepon, Randal Schnoor, Shea Schnoor and Neil Stern. The family is grateful to Cantor Tracy Kasner who led the service and shared the family’s memories and grief. The kindness of family and friends has been a great comfort.
We love you always, Dad, and miss you terribly.
