Alfred K. Toomey, Jr. (commonly Known as Boy Toomey)

It is with heavy heart that the Toomey, Woart and Scott families announce the death of Alfred K. Toomey, Jr. (commonly known as Boy Toomey) of Aluminum Factory, Gardnersville, Liberia. He departed this world on Friday, July 29, 2016 at his residence in Gardnersville, Liberia after a period of illness. Alfred was born on October 25, 1962 in Harper, Maryland County, Liberia onto the union of Alfred K.  Toomey, Sr., and Elizabeth Toomey-Scott (Elizabeth Woart).

He was raised in Harper, attended Harper Elementary Demonstration School and upon completion, enrolled at Bishop Ferguson High School, where he graduated from in the early 1980’s. Alfred then migrated to Monrovia in the mid 1980’s, where he resided throughout the Liberian civil war. Following the civil war, during normal times, he was hired as Chief Investigator at the Security Department of the University of Liberia, where he served until his death.

Alfred leaves to mourn his loss, his wife of more than 26 years, Rita Toomey of Aluminum Factory- Gardnersville; three sons:  Pastor Cyrus Toomey of  Kakata, Margibi County; Martin Toomey and Franklin Diamond Toomey of Monrovia, Liberia. (Emmanuel Toomey was his first son who predeceased him).  He also leaves to mourn his loss five siblings: Theodosia G. Toomey of St. Paul, MN; Hon. J. Kla Toomey (Jane) of Gardnersville-Liberia; Sara Y. Toomey of St. Paul, MN; Sarai Scott-Savage (John) of Charlotte, NC; and Huroye D. Scott (Michelle) of Woodbury, MN. (Other siblings included Jane Toomey-George and Daniel Hodo Toomey who predeceased him); Six grand-children; several nieces and nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends of the United States of America, France, Germany and Liberia.

Rest eternal grant unto him O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in perfect peace. Amen!
