Daily, Charles  Ray1957 B.M.E.

D.O.D 02/15/2013 - Charles Ray Daily was born February 25, 1935 in Ponca City, Oklahoma to the late Edward C. and Sarah (Andrew) Daily. The nickname "Toby" was given to him as a child by his beloved uncle, Walt Andrew, and it served him well all his life. Toby attended Ponca City schools where his love of music was nurtured. He played his first dance job while in high school.

Attending Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma, he continued his study of and performance of music, graduating in 1957 with a B.M.E. He married Marilyn Hollar, also a Phillips graduate. Toby taught music at all levels from Kindergarten through 12 during his career, starting in Oklahoma and Kansas. The family relocated to Broomfield, Colorado in 1964, where he was employed by Adams County School District #14 until his retirement in 1990. Throughout his teaching career he nurtured and inspired a love for music to countless students, including his own daughters.

In Denver, he discovered a large fraternity of professional musicians who became wonderful friends and remained very important to him throughout his life. Toby played in jazz combos and large dance bands on trombone and bass. He was an excellent singer of big band ballads and loved doing it. Classical music was also a favorite and a huge highlight for him was attending a live Pavarotti concert. After retiring, Toby enjoyed traveling with his wife, Marilyn, and spent winter months with a community of close friends in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Toby passed away Friday, February 15, 2013, in Boulder after suffering a severe head injury. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Marilyn; three daughters: Joy Chitwood; Joni Bettge; and Kimberly Matagora.
