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 4th 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 $210,000 was raised during the past two years. These donations have benefited thousands of kids with cancer and blood disorders from the metropolitan area being treated at The Valerie Fund Children’s Centers.
Luke and Art continue to be inspired by the leadership roles Toby held in the community including service on his local board of education. Toby’s own educational background was impressive –he received his BA from Amherst College and his MBA from Harvard Business School. A highly successful businessman, Toby’s accomplishments were cut short in 1993 when he lost his battle with cancer at 48. This wonderful family man missed out on being a grandfather to 12, making the legacy to helping children beat cancer today so vital and enduring.
Sadly, Luke was quite young when his Dad died and was very fortunate to have Brock Lovero as a surrogate father and later, as his father-in-law. A man with golden hands and a golden heart, Brock led teams for over 40 years in the construction of new homes. Brock died in December of 2015 and is missed dearly by family, friends and community. He left behind two very strong woman–his wife, Kathleen and Luke’s wife Stephanie–who continue to make the big man proud.
As Luke and Art renew their commitment to this event for the fourth year, they are motivated by the spirit of both men they love and look up to every day. Luke says, “It is our sincere privilege to continue to honor Toby and Brock at our 2017 charity golf event to raise funds for children with cancer and blood disorders being treated at The Valerie Fund.”
