Our beloved father, J. B. (Julius Byers) Tobler of Austin, TX peacefully passed into eternal glory on Father's Day, June 18th, 2017 and is now in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was 92 years old.

He is survived by a brother, Henry Tobler of El Paso, TX, a SisterĀ¬ in-Law, Wilma Deleon of Burnet, TX, sons Robert (Rita) Tobler of Kyle, TX, Doug (Linda) Tobler of Austin, TX, and Garth Tobler of Oneonta, AL, grandchildren Justin of Taylor, TX, Wacey Uess) of Leander, TX, Zachary of Austin, TX and Austin of Oneonta, AL, three great- grandchildren - Blaine, Ava Grace and Olivia Jane, and numerous cousins, nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by Jerline, his wife of 59 years.

JB grew up in San Antonio and moved to Austin, TX in the late 1940's. At age 17 (in 1942) he enlisted in the US Navy and valiantly served in both WWII and the Korean Wars.

After the Navy, JB attended civil engineer training and worked several jobs, one of which was for the City of Austin as Chief Draftsman. He was able to name three streets off of Dessau Road: Tobler Trail, Alma Drive, and Byers Lane. JB then worked for private companies Bryant and Carrington Constructors, Inc., and Freddy Dipple at Carlson & Dipple until he retired in the early 1980s.
