Tory Austin Holobaugh
August 11, 1995 ‒ August 22, 2016
Tory Austin Holobaugh, 21, of Marengo, passed away early Monday morning August 22, 2016 at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, after a courageous 13 month battle with Leukemia.
He was born August 11, 1995 in Columbus to Dillan and Christy (Inscho) Holobaugh and he graduated from Buckeye Valley High School in 2015 where he was an FFA member. Tory was also an active 4H member for 12 years. In 2014, Tory was selected as the 4H Junior Fair Prince of the Delaware County Fair. Tory was also a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association. He worked at Meijer’s and for Care Free Lawn Care, both of Delaware.
A true outdoorsman, Tory enjoyed fishing, kayaking, four wheeling, flying remote control airplanes and riding horses. He also enjoyed cooking and within the last year he took up playing the guitar.
Quite the prankster, Tory enjoyed making people laugh. He truly loved his family and friends. He had aspirations of serving his country as a member of the United States Navy before his cancer diagnosis. The treatments he received were part of the research for ALL Leukemia cancer that were not only important to him but for his desire to help others.
Left to cherish his memory are his parents of Marengo; sisters, Rylee and Samantha Holobaugh; maternal grandparents, Mark and Cheryl Inscho of Marengo; paternal grandparents, Bill and Durena Holobaugh of Centerburg; great grandparents, Janet Inscho of Delaware and Wayne and Carol Riesen of Roanoke, Virginia; aunts, Kelly Oiler of Marengo and Roshelle Dickason of Centerburg; cousins, Katie (Brandon) Hoyt, Kolton Oiler, Savannah Inscho-Lewis, Kenzy Oiler, Kaden Oiler and Anique Dilarenzo.
Tory was preceded in death by his aunt Cindy Jo Inscho and great grandparents Jean Riesen, Walter and Natalie Hunt and Foster Inscho.
