Scott Edward Toney

October 18, 1979 — June 17, 2021

Scott Edward Toney also known as Slickster and Scotty T, age 41, of Bellevue, MI passed away unexpectedly on June 17, 2021, in Jackson, MI. Scott was born on October 18, 1979, in Battle Creek, MI to parents Carl T. and Sharon K. (Peck) Toney.

During his childhood, Scott participated in Boy Scouts, 4H, and enjoyed sports of all kinds which carried on throughout his entire life. His pitching was a force to be reckoned with at every level of baseball and softball he played.

Scott was a stay-at-home dad as well as an incredible homemaker and loved playing outside with his children, wife, and fur babies. He enjoyed the outdoors, everything from fishing to yard work to riding and driving recreational vehicles with his cousins and neighborhood friends. He also loved kayaking down the river with his family and friends, even by himself at times to enjoy God's beauty. Scott coached his daughter's softball and basketball teams (with his wife, Zimmy, and Lacy) from the time they started playing until the high school coaches took over. He enjoyed taking them to as many tournaments as he could. He was also very involved in each of his girls' dance careers at Dance Dynamics, where they followed throughout the years, in their Aunt Melinda's footsteps. Scott took great pride in the upkeep of his property including trails for the family and pets to enjoy whether by foot or on wheels. His favorite holiday has always been the 4th of July which he spent at Lyon Lake with his friends and family. He loved the Detroit Red Wings and Michigan State Spartans. Scott also enjoyed riding in the wind and had the shot of a sniper while enjoying target practice throughout the years. We know he was a believer and met at the gates of Heaven by all those who left before him.

Scott is survived by wife, Mandy L. (Arrington) Toney whom he loving referred to as "Mandalicious" His three daughters, McKenna "My Angel/Kenna Kaye", McKayla "My Princess/Kayla Rie" and MacKenzie "My Monkey/Kenzer"; parents, Carl and Sharon Toney of Marshall, MI; sister, Melinda Holbrook (Adam); nephew, Addison Holbrook; niece, Ashlynn Holbrook; many bonus children, Thomas Mason, Jayna Morris, Madison McClain, Harley Pritchard, Rylie Powell, Karley King, Kourtney King, Karter King and many others throughout the years; brothers for life, Tony Travis (Jessica), and Joe Dow (Tiffany); special friends for life, Brianna Novak (Jeff), Jason Clemmens (Jeanette), Jason Huggett (Lisa) and Chris Hazen (Melissa Eich).
