Toby was born on December 11, 1948, in Shreveport, Louisiana to Opal and William Shaw, Sr. and peacefully entered into rest on Friday, October 6, 2023.

When Toby was young, he worked for his dad as a farmer and then joined the Air Force and after he was honorably discharged, he went on to hold many jobs over his lifetime where he was the “jack of all trades and the master of none”, until he surrendered to preach. He was the founder and pastor of First Community Church of Mansfield, where he truly found his calling. Toby loved farming and the outdoors. He loved to fish and hunt but riding his horses was his favorite thing, especially with his kids and grandkids. He loved his family, church, and his members. He enjoyed his mornings with the coffee group. He will be missed by so many.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Deloris “Sis” Shaw; daughters, Michelle Burr (Dale), Stephanie Locke (Chris) and Jennifer Hobbs (Gary); sisters, Linda Porter, and Melba Shaw; granddaughters, Jessica Bolton (Blake), Madison Knippers (Jaylynn) and Sydney Martin (Richard); grandsons, Justin Burr and Silas Hobbs; great-grandchildren, Hallie Bolton, and Waylon Martin; and a host of nieces and nephews. Toby was preceded in death by his parents.

Honoring Toby as pallbearers will be Chris Locke, Blake Bolton, Dale Burr, Jaylynn Knippers, Richard Martin, Justin Burr, Bubba Locke, and Gary Hobbs. Honorary pallbearers will be the Men’s Coffee Club.
