Former Texas House of Representatives, Toby Goodman passed away Monday July 19, 2021. Goodman’s contributions to the State of Texas and Mansfield community will be missed.
”Toby Goodman meant so much to me and I loved him like a father. We lived next door to each other for many years and I’ll miss the conversations we always had. I was his Halloween candy passing out buddy each year and despite the weather we were always outside greeting the kids. I’ll really miss him but I’ll never forget all he’s taught me and hearing the funniest stories known to man. It would be the greatest book ever written “The Life of Toby”
Toby was a long time State Rep for our area serving in the for 16 years. He is known for writing much of the Penal Code, Family Code and Juvenile Code and probably passed more legislation than any legislator in history. Toby and the late Senator Chris Harris were an absolute force in Texas Politics. I’m sure their reunion has been interesting today. Toby has always been there every time I needed anything and he always did so much for me. I’m deeply thankful and I’ll always miss him.” Clint C Burgess posted on Facebook.
He is survived by his wife, Gloria, and kids Brian, Lauri, Christie and the entire family.
”Texas lost a True Statesman today with the death of Toby Goodman. I have known Toby for over 30 years and have sought his advice and help many times. He was always there when needed. As a Legislator he was responsible for passing much of Texas Family Law. Toby was always warm and friendly to those around him.He leaves behind a sweet family of just good people. His wife Gloria, Son & Daughter, Grandchildren and more friends and people that he impacted than we will ever know! The world & specifically Texas are a little less today while Heaven has welcomed him with Well Done My Good & Faithful Servant! Please pray for his family!” Wesley Craig Ownby posted on Facebook.
