  2. We were all saddened to hear that Charles has passed away. I have very warm memories of Charles when we were growing up. He was always kind and thoughtful to us as children and we were always excited to see him! Although we did not keep in close contact as adults our warm friendship endured and we deeply feel his loss. Love and best wishes to Ruth and family. Lindsay and Rosslyn Smalley.

  11. Remember ‘Toby’ from days at Northcote High School in the 1960’s and the school judo club. He was a good judo player and the sort of person who got on well with everyone, he was liked by all. I pass on my condolences. Bob Howes.

  12. To Dear Toby
    Who would of thought by moving my family to Pakenham 10 years ago I could of met a more personal caring man then you didn’t matter who you are, old, young male or female Toby had the same respect and fun with them all.

    If there was ever was ever a problem in any of my families life the same answer would come up “Go and ask Toby”.

    He was always there to help. He was also a great mate and brains behinds for our famous distillery which operated for a good period of time.

    I hate cliché’s but fairdikum when god created Charles Toby Tyler he broke the mold because Toby is truly one of a kind irreplaceable.

    Love you Man, Rayme

  24. We are so lucky to have had you as a very special friend and more like a brother, sharing all our memories good and bad through tuff times and good.
    We will always have you in our hearts for the help and support you gave us along the way especially in our separation situation and looking after our kids when needed.
    The many outings we had and many drinks shared to celebrate will be always remembered. Especially Tasmania when you linked up with another of our best friends Ruth.

  25. A 60’s Disney Movie named “Toby Tyler” about a boy who ran away to join a circus had inspired Charles’ nick name. Memories of Toby at Northcote High School is that he was like the young movie star – full of optimism, adventure, good looks and good temperament with a bright future ahead of him. He was a good judo player at school. RIP Toby, we will remember you. Condolence to Ruth and family

The space you’ve left, cannot be filled. Enjoy your next phase mate. Very decent ratings too on a more irreverent note. A consistent 55-60 viewers throughout ✅ Toby would’ve been pleased with that I reckon ! Was wonderful, TY. x HC
