Charles loved aircraft and attained his A & P license to fly commercially. As a professional student he never stopped going to school and had been working on obtaining his Doctorate and venture into a political career in Austin where he was from. Charles has not only soared above the clouds as a pilot, but has traveled the world in the process and enjoyed scuba-diving, swimming, boating, skydiving and a host of other adventures. Charles loved his life, family and friends. They say those who constantly cheat death are Order Of Service living life to the fullest. Perhaps it’s the lack of fear that opens up one’s world, allows one to take risks that constrain lesser mortals. Charles did live a full life, despite his too soon death. He loved and embraced those around him, with long arms and with his fearless heart he made a positive impact on those of us who knew him, who loved him, and brothers who worshiped him. We’ll miss the friend, brother, the one who tested his limits, who brought home the trophies, who befriended and defended the neighborhood dogs and children, who was always quick with a funny line, who was always eager to go off on another adventure, who fought with us and loved us with equal passion. We will mourn the man who’s gone, whom we lost so suddenly, but we’ll remember him, and above all, he would want us to remember him as he lived, on the edge of life whether it was sailing around the world in his boat or hang gliding over the mountains Charles was always on the fearless edge of "ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE".

Lee, Timothy Byron
May 25, 1956 - Oct 25, 2004

Died at age 48.

Family-Placed Obituary Timothy Byron Lee born, May 25, 1956, in Houston, Texas to Charles and Penny Lee (deceased), died this October 25, 2004 at the Veterans Hospital Dallas, Texas after a year long battle with Cancer. He is now in a better place. He is survived by his brothers John and Rodney Lee. Tim has one daughter, Elisha, who he loved dearly. Tim grew up in Austin, Texas and graduated from Reagan High. After graduation he joined the United States Marine Corps, where he excelled as a "Sharpshooter" in the Marines, attaining the rank of Sergeant. He served in both stateside and overseas deployments. He received an Honorable discharged February 12, 1979. During his service he was awarded three Expert Rifle Badges as well as Certificates of Commendation, Meritorious Mast, and Good Conduct Awards. Tim was an avid outdoorsman, to say the least. He loved to hunt and fish, it was his passion. He spent more time at deer camp and on the end of a rod than most would consider normal. He loved to cook and most people who tried his fare enjoyed it! That is, as long as you like your food WELL SEASONED and your STEAK RARE. After the Marines, Tim attended Austin Community College where he studied electronics, which later led him to a career in electro-mechanical repair of semiconductor equipment at companies such as Motorola, AMD, DuPont Photomask and DPI. He enjoyed travel and saw many places including Japan and Israel. Later in life Tim pursued construction work, mainly restoration and renovation but, also barn and deck construction. Tim loved the outdoor lifestyle. Those who knew Tim well knew, how he struggled with alcohol in his earlier years - this lead to many problems in Tim's life. In 1994 he made a conscience decision to change his life (although the Texas Court System nudged him along). He was sober the remainder of his life slowly rebuilding himself. Tim had accepted Jesus Christ as his "personal savior" and like all of us was "a work in progress". We will miss him dearly.

Tobias, Susan Marie
Sep 20, 1956 - Mar 22, 2016

Died at age 59.

Susan Marie Tobias, nearing her 60th birthday, died of cancer on March 22, 2016, in Denver, Colorado. She was born in Cambridgeshire, England and moved to Houston, Texas soon after. Susan having dual citizenship chose American citizenship before her 21st birthday. Although she spent her early years in Texas and Arizona, she considered Denver home. Susan enjoyed a diverse professional career. Bookkeeper, accountant, trainer for implementing software programs; Boulder School of Massage; Metro Pre-Med - the professional path from her University of Houston Bachelor's in Business Administration and Accounting degree to her present music-filled life was as varied as it was serendipitous. Starting her career at American Natural Resources in Houston, Susan was then offered a position as an oil and gas accountant at Forest Oil in Denver. Her first introduction to teaching was at Gathers Software, where she trained users on utilizing oil and gas software. During that time, Susan discovered massage therapy and, in 1986, completed the massage therapy program at the Boulder School of Massage. In an effort to better help her clients, she enrolled in the Pre-Med program at Metro State/U of Colorado at Denver, where she completed the scientific requirements to apply to medical school while volunteering at Children's and Craig hospitals. In the application process, Susan realized that she could be of more service as a massage therapist; this has served as a wonderful compliment to her teaching career. Another area Susan always wanted to explore was music; she began as a volunteer in the band program at St. Ann's Episcopal School, thus launching her music career! After teaching there for a number of years, Susan was hired as Highline Academy's K-8 general music teacher. There she implemented such programs as guitar, before-school band, Shakespeare while serving on the playground and garden committees. At Highline, she became a part of an incredible community of talented and dedicated faculty and staff. Susan's cancer diagnosis prompted an overwhelming offering of love and support from Highline's Board of Directors, its administration, teachers, students and parents. Over the past months, this generosity of spirit has extending to so many who have reached out to her. No greater gift than the caring of others. Susan's musical journey included a certification in Suzuki piano and classes in Suzuki violin. She played clarinet in the Denver Concert Band and the Souza Band. She was a rehearsal assistant with Young Voices of Colorado and also taught reed sectionals to students in the Colorado Honor Band. Susan loved travel, including Japan, Egypt, and Israel, contra-dancing, bike riding and attending the Colorado Symphony. Susan's life was filled with learning, exploration, and sharing her love of life and is honored to have been able to achieve that…..working with children. Susan is survived by her best canine companions, Sasha and Sophie; her father Ben Tobias and step-mother Phyllis Webb Tobias of Willis, Texas; her brother Donald Tobias of Houston, Texas; her brother Paul Tobias and sister-in-law Michelle Tobias of Austin, Texas; her sister Elizabeth Tobias Riley and brother-in-law Jack Riley of Montgomery, Texas; her step-sister Nicki Webb Jones and step-brother-in-law Ernest Jones of Dallas, Texas; nephews and nieces with whom she shared a very special bond. Susan was preceded in death by her mother Sarah Anne Windrow Tobias of Orange, Texas. Susan's family would like to thank the Highline Academy community for all of the love and support they shared with Susan and to the physicians and staff at the University of Colorado Hospital (Anschutz) who cared for her throughout her illness. A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. at Grace Methodist Church on April 23, 2016, located at 5131 East Yale Circle, Denver, Colorado 80222. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to your favorite music-related charity, Highline Academy, or the charity of your choice.

Williams, Todd Radford
Aug 27, 1956 - Sep 24, 2006

Died at age 50.

Todd Radford Williams, known to thousands of Austin schoolchildren as "Farmer Todd", died in San Antonio on Sunday, September 24, 2006, at the University Hospital Transplant Center. He was 50 years old. Todd was born August 27, 1956, to Prescott and Jane (McMillan) Williams in Baltimore, MD, and moved with his family to Austin before his third birthday, when his father took a position at the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Todd attended Austin public schools and graduated from John H. Reagan High School with the class of 1974. He received a Bachelors degree in agricultural education from Stephen F. Austin University. Todd was a hard-working, kind and patient man with unflagging enthusiasm and humor. He possessed tremendous practical intelligence and was unassuming and without malice. He loved his job with the City of Austin's living museum, the Jordan-Bachman Pioneer Farm, where he spent over 23 years. He was particularly proud of his "Barnyard Babies" program, which introduced very young children to equally young animals. When his health forced a move away from close contact with children, animals and old farm implements, he transferred to the Zilker Botanical Gardens, where he worked until forced into complete retirement in 2005 by his health. The cliché about never meeting a stranger was true for Todd. He enjoyed meeting new people and learning all about them. He was also a private individual, sharing innermost thoughts and feelings with only a select few. He was a loving and committed father. He was a generous, thoughtful, fun-loving, caring, respectful and tolerant man. We, his family, firmly believe it was the love he gave and received that kept him alive longer than anyone could have expected. Todd loved his childhood summer vacation in Colorado, and dearly wished he could retrace, with his own children, the camping trip route that his parents and siblings took in 1965 from Iceland to the city of Jerusalem in Jordan. Todd and his brothers and sister frequently entertained the whole family with hilarious and poignant stories of their 18 month stay in the Middle East. Todd is survived by his much beloved children, Megan and Adam; his parents, Dr. Prescott and Jane Williams; brother Scott and wife Cheryl; brother Andrew and wife Kathy; sister Peggie and husband Steve Tufts; nieces Mary (and husband Daniel Brown), Katy, Jenny and Laura, nephews Pete and David, and great-nephew James; dear childhood friends Michael Joseph, Joe Matthews, Donna and Laszlo Eosze; a close extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins; and an even larger extended family of friends. The family thanks the doctors and nurses and staff at the University Hospital Transplant unit for all their care and special efforts. We also appreciate the support and care from Todd's friend, Michael, who stuck with him and us throughout these difficult years. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to an education fund for Todd's children. Contributions can be sent, in his name, to 5412 Tipton Drive, Austin, 78723. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2006, at 2:00 p.m. at the Elgin First Presbyterian Church.
