Tobin Richard Harris, 25, died Sunday, December 3, 2017 at OSF St. Anthony’s Health Center. Born August 1, 1992, he was the son of Valorie (Robbins) Harris (Susan Kidder) of Alton and Mark Harris (Corinne) of Alton. Tobin was proud of his work with the City of Alton Parks and Recreation Department maintaining the parks. Along with his parents he is survived by his “little man” and son, Wyatt Richard Downey of Godfrey, maternal grandparents, Kay and Richard Robbins of Sunrise Beach, MO, his great aunt, Nina Madison, who was like a grandmother to him, his Uncle Eric and Aunt Nancy Harris, his Aunt Vanessa and Uncle Dan North and his cousins, Jessie, Josh, Alex, Drew, Samantha and Randy and lots of friends from all walks of life. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Richard and Kathryn Harris. Tobin was big-hearted and generous, charming and funny, and never met a stranger. He was adventurous and had a little “Eddie Haskell” in his personality which could be endearing. He cared deeply about his family and friends. Toby was so loved and will be so missed.
