He is to be admired not only for his intelligence but also for his heart and his stand against apartied. My condolences from a stranger in Mississippi, U.S., a lover of science, nature, and good people. Marion
I never knew Mr. Tobias but I had just stated to study his work at home. I am sorry for your loss, and the loss to the nations he was a great man he will be missed.
A paragon of erudition he was. The world is better off for having had him. May he rest in peace (with our Ancestors).
With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of sorrow. Psalms 46:1 says: God is for us a refuge and strength during this difficult time and May God grant you the comfort to endure.
My condolences to the family. May your fond memories bring you peace as well as the comfort that our heavenly father gives.
Our condolences to
One of a Kind person"
Admired Wise & educated
A most respected and revered man. A privilege to have known him and been taught by him. Condolences to all family and friends.
A Titan has fallen. We were classmates and I was a member of his staff for decades. But my most cherished memories are as a friend. I saw him regularly on many visits to S Africa, the last time six months ago. He was an acknowledged genius but above all, a true "mensch". He leaves a huge void nationally, internationally and personally and he and is forever irreplaceable.
People such as Professor Tobias are a blessing to mankind. So few and far between, it's a real loss when such a huge contributor to education and moral values, passes.
Thank you for enlightening the world. It was a privilege to have been in your paleontology course in the 1970s. You were always a gracious and humble man. You will be missed.
To the the family of Philip Tobias - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
