Father, grandfather and great-grandfather; World War II Navy veteran, 'dedicated himself to serving others', of Piscataway, 94 Frank Theodore Tobias, 94, passed away peacefully in his Piscataway, NJ, home on November 22, 2021. He was predeceased by his wife, Marilyn Tobias (2005), and his siblings Anna Fitz, Marion Artim, George, John, Joseph, Michael, Steven and Paul Tobias. Growing up a son of Czechoslovakian immigrants, he was committed to creating a better life. He dedicated himself to serving others - first to his country as a WWII Navy/Seabees veteran in Japan where he was awarded a Purple Heart and then to his family and friends. He was employed by Johns Manville, Zeston in Fords as a shipping supervisor, he was a parishioner of St. Francis Cabrini Catholic church in Piscataway, and he was a lifelong parishioner of St. Mary's Byzantine Catholic Church in Jersey City, NJ where he sang in the choir. He enjoyed road trips, painting houses, photography, food, and of course cracking some classic dad jokes. He was a busy bee, always wanting to go go go, but that didn't stop him from taking the time to notice kindness and hard work in others and he was always sure to tell you that he appreciated it and that it didn't go unnoticed. He was predeceased by his son, Frank (1998), and he is survived by his daughter, Lynn Bryant (Robert) of Piscataway and Suzanne Renshaw (William) of Pennsylvania. He is also survived by seven grandchildren-Frank Tobias Jr of Piscataway, Robert Bryant, Nicholas Bryant (Amber), and Alyssa Bryant all of Piscataway, Brittany Becker of Piscataway, Samantha Cuevas (Edward) and Holly Renshaw of Pennsylvania, and a great-granddaughter, Brianna Porter of Piscataway, and two great-grandsons, Ezra and Oliver Cuevas of Pennsylvania.

Mr. Tobias and I were a great team together. We were always working on a house or rental together. He loved to paint and I hated it, so we were a perfect match. Without fail, every time he finished painting a house or room, I'd come back in and say "I've got some bad news for you Mr. Tobias", I just realized that I have to run one more electrical wire in that wall. Without hesitation, I'd start to break holes here and there in the drywall to snake the wire through. He looked like he was going to cry as I destroyed another perfect paint job. Even so, he told me he still liked me. I could have not asked for a nicer father-in-law. He was a super nice guy. See you in heaven. Save me a spot. Bob
