I am a retired mathematics professor from Tufts University, about the same age that Professor Tobler was. I want to tell you about a recent contact I had with him. I have an amateur interest in map projections. In late January, I emailed Professor Tobler about one of his papers. His reply mentioned map projection software so I wrote back on January 31 and mentioned that I had none. The very next day he sent me some such software. I was able to use it to put the outlines of the continents on a map I had been working on, and having done that I am now able to submit the map for possible publication. About two weeks ago I happened to look again at his Wikipedia page and was stunned to find that he had died three days earlier. Although I had sent him a peremptory thank you, I feel really bad that I had never let him know how helpful the software was to me. I want to let you know how helpful he was in his last days to someone he didn't even know. Although I never met him, I feel that I have lost a friend.
