Murray Toborowsky, 80 died unexpectedly on Friday, December 4, 2020.  He was born on October 20, 1940, to Julie Sher and David Toborowsky in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Larry Toborowsky.

He graduated from the University of Kentucky, returned to New Jersey, and taught history in the school district before moving to Louisville where he met his future wife, Bonnie Zegart Stoler. Murray always had a smile on his face, loved life, and was loved by everyone.

He was retired from Bill Collins Ford and a member of Congregation Adath Jeshurun, of which he was a current board member and remembered as the “Cemetery Warden”, a position he held for many years.   His passion for history and teaching included lectures on “Jews in American History” at Rollins College.  He also presented on Abraham Lincoln and his Jewish friends, acquaintances and how these connections may have influenced the direction of American history.

Murray is survived by his loving wife Bonnie; his beloved children Leigh Toborowsky (Beata), David Toborowsky (Annie), and Nancy Grzesik (Art); two sisters Beryl Wild (Frank) and Soni Capolupo (Joe), seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.  He is also missed by his stepchildren, Dr. Robert Stoler (Andrea), Kevin (Stephanie) Stoler, and Kimberly Schiller (Ron).

Due to current pandemic restrictions, there will be a private graveside for his immediate family with interment at Adath Jeshurun Cemetery.  The services will be streamed live on Monday, December 7, 2020 beginning at 1 p.m. via the Herman Meyer & Son, Inc.
