Glenn Dooley Toyne, 65, of Sedgwick Colorado, passed away November 28, 2023, at his home
after a return of an aggressive tumor.
Glenn was born Friday June 13, 1958, to Dooley and Ellen Toyne in Cañon City, Colorado. At
the age of 4 the family moved to the Toyne homestead in Sedgwick, Colorado. He graduated
from Revere High School, Valedictorian of the class in 1976. He spent two years at CSU and a
year at NJC before he found his true passion, farming for two Great Uncles and a Great Aunt.
Glenn started his Black Angus herd with Frosty Toyne and his great affection for John Deere
equipment with Chuck and Jean Toyne. He bought Frosty’s farm when he passed away.
In 1982 Glenn’s first son, Jason, was born. Then he met Sandra Tonga they were married
November 29, 1986. To this union two more sons were born, Charles in 1991 and Forrest in
Glenn wasn’t one for sitting still for too long in his younger days it was hunting, trapping,
fishing, arrowhead hunting, shooting, and reloading. With age he still didn’t wait for someday
or for retirement to enjoy all the things he liked to do, hunting, fishing, traveling, RVing, ATVing
and going to and watching NASCAR, BBQing home grown beef, and drinking with friends. Best
of all he loved driving his JD combine and finished this year’s harvest. He really cherished the
times when he got to go round up cattle in the ATV and shoot with the grandkids. His favorite
ones were pheasant hunting with Jennifer and trail riding in the ATV with Flynt in Arizona.
Glenn always had a dog or two, either hunting or cattle dogs to keep company with. His dog
Riggins that he liked the best, was there to the end and looks for Glenn everywhere.
Survivors include his long aggravating wife of just shy by hours of 37 years Sandy (Tonga) Toyne.
His son Jason and wife Jan, and their children Jennifer and Flynt. Sons Charles Toyne and
Forrest Toyne of Sedgwick. His parents Dooley and Ellen Toyne of Sedgwick. Sister Carolyn and
husband Jim Peterson of Fort Collins and their daughter Katherine of Denver and daughter
Diana and her husband Ben Zigterman and their sons of Longmont. Brother David and wife Kris
Toyne of Sedgwick. Great Aunt Jean Toyne of Sedgwick.
A tribute of Glenn’s life will be held December 11, 2023, at the Sedgwick Community Center at
11:00 AM. Spreading of ashes will be later in the summer, over a corn field with the use of
Tannerite and a .270 rifle.
