Obituary of John Anthony Tobias
John Anthony Tobias, 53, of Bay City, our humble, driven, and funny father, son, Papa, brother, uncle, and friend was born into eternal life unexpectedly on Sunday, August 5, 2018. John was born in Bay City on September 4, 1964, the son of John and Sharon (Humpert) Tobias. Known for his mechanical and handy ways, John worked in the automotive field where he was talented with body work. Naturally, he enjoyed fixing up cars. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, reading, writing, barbecuing, and was always putting others before himself. John was a man of many talents; a good man and a good father who will be deeply missed, but lovingly remembered for years to come. He leaves to cherish his memory, his daughter, Alexandrea Tobias and son, Travis Tobias. He was the most wonderful Papa to Gavin Wiegard and beloved son of John and Sharon Tobias. Also surviving are his siblings, Jodi (Mike) Jaskiewicz, Susan (Brad) Nettles, Tonya (Dave) Prankienas, along with many nieces, nephews, aunt, cousins, and friends.
