In Memoriam

Col. (Ret.) Toby D. McCoy '92, '95L (1970-2021)

For Toby, giving back to W&L Law was more than an intention; it was his personal mission, and he often characterized his service as Law Annual Fund Chair as an honor. Of course, the honor was all ours. Before he discovered he was seriously ill, he asked if, in addition to joining Law Council, he could stay on as the alumni representative for annual giving. Even after his diagnosis, he remained determined to help the Law School until he was unable to serve.

Toby was always eager to relate how his seven years in Lexington changed him forever--meeting lifelong friends in the classroom, on the baseball diamond, or around campus. In his absence, we will cherish his warmth, good humor, and unwavering dedication to his values.
