Melvin "Toby" Earl Thorman, age 90, passed away on Sunday, October 7, 2018, at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg. He was born March 1, 1928 in Spring Green, the son of Frederick Carl and Wilhelmina "Hattie" (Homann) Thorman.

He was united in marriage to Violet Arndt on May 24, 1947. They were together 43 years and raised two children. After Violet passed away on October 31, 1990, he was united in marriage to Grace (Nehls- Paske) on December 27, 1991. They were together 26 years until her passing on August 7, 2017.

Melvin worked as a welder at Creamery Package in Lake Mills. After retirement, he and Violet bought an Apple Orchard and farmed in Lake Mills. It was at this orchard his grandchildren grew up and made many fond memories with their grandparents. Melvin enjoyed traveling with Grace and liked watching the Brewers, Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers and Chicago Cubs. He often times would have two TV's and the radio playing different games at the same time. He also loved woodworking and could build anything from just the plans in his mind.

He is survived by his daughter Darlene (Marty) Larson; his brother Larry (Cathy) Thorman; his grandchildren Jason (Tammie) Thorman, Tammy (Tim) Earl, Roxanne Thorman, Chad Larson, and Becky (Will) Klein; his great-grandchildren Sam, Maddie and Jax Thorman, Will, Wyatt, Weston, Willow and Whitney Klein; his daughter in law Barb Thorman; his stepdaughters Debbie Paske, Sandy (Mike) Buege, Barb (Rick) Elsing and Brenda Paske.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his wives Violet (Arndt) and Grace (Nehls-Paske); his sons Ken and Daryll; his brothers Glenn and Harold; his sisters Marian Goers- Wright, Grace Dieter-Touten, Barbara Thorman, Frieda Siebarth and Donna Roehl- Fischer; his granddaughter Marcia Larson and his stepdaughter Liela Kittleson.

Deacon Todd M. Martin on Oct 11, 2018

I was Toby's foreman in 1973-5. I was a young know-it-all. Toby taught me leadership and reason, the hard way. I will always hold my experience with him in the highest regard. My sincere sympathies. Warm Regards, Todd M. Martin, Madison.
