Tobias Joziah Tysdal was gently embraced in the arms of Jesus on May 26, 2017. Toby was born with a congenital heart defect called Truncus Arteriosis.

Despite his condition and the numerous surgeries he endured, Toby never stopped fighting. He was well known for his beautiful smile and array of facial expressions. Between surgeries Toby was playful, cuddly, curious, and loved attention. We had many memorable moments with him.

Although Toby lived his life at Children's Mercy Hospital, he was very loved and supported by our family, church family, hospital staff and the community. He was welcomed into heaven by his brother, Kaeden, and other siblings; his grandmothers, Renee Valerie Tomlin, Dorothy Mortensen Granberg and Beverly Houghton; grandfathers, Bill VanMeter, Victor Wager and Richard Tomlin; and several more.

Toby will forever be cherished by parents, Michael and Amber Tysdal; siblings, Hunter, Alexis, Elsie, Zoe and Kaia Tysdal; grandmothers, Mary Cline and Melinda Tysdal; grandfathers, Frank Tysdal, Kirk VanMeter and Kenneth Cline; as well as many other family members and friends.
