Toby Rowland passed away suddenly on April 15, 2023. He was born to Frank and Ginger Rowland March 27, 1961.
Toby made his life in Orofino, Idaho along with so many friends he had, many dating all the way back to high school. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and talent for making everyone laugh. Toby’s sense of style never changed; a tee shirt, suspenders and the infamous handkerchief, carefully folded and hung from his back pocket. Toby had an extreme love for music, especially classic rock and playing the drums.
He will be remembered and greatly missed by many.
Toby is survived by his mother; Ginger Rowland of Orofino; brother; Tyler Rowland of Orofino; and his son; Jesse Rowland of Medford, Oregon.
Toby is preceded in death by his father; Frank Rowland and his brother; Gregg Rowland.
A memorial celebration will be held at the Shot Glass Bar in Orofino on May 13 at 2 p.m. Bring your favorite dish for a potluck, any pictures and stories of Toby you would like to share. You may even want to wear a handkerchief in honor of Toby that day. God speed to our dear friend.
Keep’em laughing Toby!
“Saying goodbye isn’t for us. Instead, we will say looking forward to seeing our friend again. Each time we are reminded of him through a phrase, a joke, even an item of clothing, these are the things that will keep us close despite death.”
My thoughts and prayers are strongly with all of you during this time. Toby holds a dear deeply rooted place in the core of my very soul. From being a six year old little girl who helped him and Jesse's momma take care of him right after he was born to having a shoulder to cry on when I lost my mother many years ago and then finally losing my dad too. I am never going to forget about those times and I will always remember your smiling face. Dear friend!
