Art was a faithful supporter of countless kids involved in the local FFA and 4H groups. He was always one to be unconditionally giving of his time and knowledge to anyone. His legacy lives on in his family, blood and “adopted”. From the life lessons and skills that will forever be remember in mechanics, ranching, heavy equipment operation, hunting, and fishing. Arts greatest joy was his family, the he worked to provide for, to teach, and ultimately showed unconditional love to everyday of his life.
Art is survived by his wife, Sandy, his four children Toby Tobiason, Vanessa Aspin, Tom Tobiason, and Jamie Tobiason, his eight grandchildren, Travis Aspin, Justin Aspin, Brandy Tobiason, Amber Hardin, Lane Tobiason, Sierra Tobiason, Tanya Tobiason, and Jake Tobiason, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, in-laws, and countless friends. All who knew his love and enthusiasm for living life to the fullest will miss his larger than life personality. His jokes and recognizable laugh will be greatly missed, but nothing more than his unconditional love
A celebration of life will be held in November. More details to be determined on a later date.
