Richard (Toby) Tyler and Brock (Fath) Lovero were two men who lived life with purpose, grace and meaning.
They shared similar passions---family, business, golf---and their leadership and selflessness touched many lives
The 3rd Annual Toby Tyler Golf Invitational continues a tradition of celebrating Toby’s love and advocacy for children at an important fundraising event. Through the tireless efforts of Luke Tyler, Toby’s youngest son and Founder/CEO of Simplicity Title and great friend Arthur Moss over $100,000 was raised during last year’s golf outing. These donations benefited thousands of kids with cancer and blood disorders from the metropolitan area being treated at The Valerie Fund Children’s Centers.
Toby’s own battle with cancer was lost at the young age of 48 in 1993 making his legacy to help children beat cancer today so vital and enduring. Sadly, Luke was quite young when his Dad died and was very fortunate to have this year’s event honoree, Brock Lovero as a surrogate father and later, as his father- in-law. Brock died on December 2, 2015 and is missed dearly by family, friends and community. He left behind two very strong women---his wife, Kathleen and Luke’s wife Stephanie---who continue to make the big man proud.
A man with golden hands, a golden heart. Brock built a strong career in housing development and led teams for over 40 years in the construction of new homes. Brock never said no to anyone who asked for help and was active as a church youth group leader. His mantra was “anything is fixable” and whether he was putting together a crib for his only granddaughter or helping Art with a fixer upper in the Poconos, he took tremendous pride in being a craftsman.
As Luke and Art renew their commitment to this event for the third year, they are motivated by Brock’s spirit which continues to live on. Luke says, “This year, it is our sincere privilege to honor Brock at our 2016 charity golf event to raise funds for children with cancer and blood disorders being treated at The Valerie Fund." Both Luke and Art hope to pay tribute to their “lost hero” by making this year’s event twice as successful as the last.
