Toby Kovarik

MISSOULA — Toby James Kovarik, 34, passed away on Jan. 24, 2024, at St. Patrick Hospital. Toby was born on Dec. 15, 1989, to Curtis and Sandee Kovarik. He was the youngest of seven children. He joined Melanie, Kelly, Jade, Cawin, Angela, and Ruby. Later he gained a step- mother, Christy, and three more siblings, Ashley, Kelsie and Summer, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Toby had countless friends, too many to list, who loved him dearly. Toby had a love for plants, flowers, and trees, which led him to work in landscaping. Toby loved good food and cooking as well. This led to several jobs in the food industry in Polson. His love of the water led him to jump in the lake whenever he could. Toby had a strong love of animals including his beloved dog Foxy, his birds, and his bearded dragons.

Toby will be missed by all who crossed his path. Toby touched the lives of everyone he met in a special way. His sense of humor will be missed. A special thank you to the excellent caregivers at St. Joseph Hospital who took such good care of him and made him comfortable.
