TOBMAN, JEAN  
JEAN TOBMAN Jean Tobman, 90, widow of entrepreneur and civic leader Herb Tobman, of Las Vegas, passed away the morning of Saturday, April 23, 2016, surrounded by family members. Jean and Herb Tobman were instrumental in founding WestCare, a Las Vegas drug rehabilitation clinic, which now has locations in 17 states. The Tobmans bore witness to formative decades in Las Vegas history, having arrived in 1953, after visiting Jean Tobman's mother, who had recently moved here. "We drove back to New Jersey, packed up as quickly as possible to come to this beautiful, beautiful desert," Jean Tobman said Nov. 5, 2013, in an interview with the Oral History Research Center at UNLV. And the Las Vegas Valley was a good fit. "The serenity, the warmth, just everybody knew everyone," she said in 2013. "There was no discrimination. Everybody got along so beautifully." After arriving in Las Vegas, Jean Tobman worked in her mother's rooming house while Herb Tobman worked with her father at City Furniture Exchange on Main Street, she said in the UNLV interview. Herb Tobman had taken out a $1,200 loan to invest in the furniture store, but a blaze destroyed it in 1955. He bought his first taxi about the same time, and the family's cab business was born. The furniture store reopened and was family-run for another 20 years. After Herb Tobman's death, 10 years ago, Jean Tobman "jumped in and filled in my father's shoes" helping to run Western Cab Co., her daughter Marilyn Moran said. "And they were big shoes to fill." Jean remained involved in the family business and passionate about philanthropic causes into her twilight years, according to her daughters. Jean Tobman's philanthropic endeavors included donating to the University Of Nevada School Of Medicine for an ongoing scholarship, according to the school. UNR's medical school student lounge is named after the Tobmans. She also supported veterans and contributed to the business and athletic departments at UNLV. The family will ensure Jean Tobman's philanthropic spirit lives on. "You know, she was the whole thing," her daughters said. "She was the matriarch and the glue for this family; now it's going to be up to the next generation to continue that legacy." She was preceded in death by her son, Alan Tobman; her grandson, Alan Joseph Martin; and her husband. Tobman is survived by her daughters, Marilyn Moran, and her husband, John, Helen Martin, and her former spouse, Tom and Janie Moore, and her husband, Barry; grandchildren, J.T. (Melissa), Addie (Kurt), Zachary, Andrew (Yolanda), Jaime (J), Rachel, Blake, and Mia; and nine great-grandchildren. Services will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, at Palm Mortuary, 1325 N Main St., Las Vegas. In lieu of flowers, the family said, donations may be made to WestCare Foundation.

URQUIDI, PETER  
PETER URQUIDI Nov. 7, 1921-April 27, 2016, Today we say goodbye to a very special man, Peter C. Urquidi, who not only left his mark on the early days of the Las Vegas entertainment scene with the Peter and Hank Duo and his solo career, but he also left his mark on all those he touched. His kind-hearted nature and musical talent was the magic he possessed. Never was there a moment when his goodness, his smile along with all the love in his heart, was not felt by everyone who knew and loved him. His life journey was an unbelievable tale of goodness, compassion, family and love. Peter was a proud man, a good man, a wonderful companion; a loving husband, a gentle father and a beloved grandfather who was always giving of himself to make others happy. His love and music will live on in the hearts and minds of many. Together, we will always hold him in deeply within our heart and soul. A man like this only comes into your world once in a lifetime. For that, he will be eternally treasured. It's with great pride that I call this man, father. "Thank you for always giving of yourself and all your love. Most of all, thank you for setting such a beautiful example of how to be a wonderful human being. Thank you papa. I love you, I miss you and will see you again as you light up the heavens with your songs and goodness." Services are pending in Santa Barbara, Calif.
