Toby loved to hunt deer, fly fishing in Colorado, playing washers, and BBQing. Above all things, he loved to “hang out outside” with his children. His children were his life, and he spent time fishing with them and coached their sports teams, including coach pitch baseball and football. He was good with his hands and claimed to be a “Jack of all trades, a Master of one.”

He is survived by his wife Tamara, his children Kimber Lee and Liam Colt Moore, his parents Robert and Paula Moore, and his brothers Tommy Moore and wife Ciera of Hutto, Texas, and Scott Moore and wife Amanda of Portland, Oregon.
