Tributes To Theasen Pillay
Across social media users’ timelines are statements that show respect, admiration, and gratitude towards Pillay as people mourn the passing.
“I am totally devastated to hear the extremely sad news that attorney Theasen Pillay has passed on earlier this morning. I am truly heartbroken and shocked by this tragedy. Theasen was a regular guest on my radio show over the years and it evolved into a friendship that I valued immensely. Last year he turned the table on me and I was a guest on his popular podcast. In 2015, when I was inducted into the South African Radio Hall of Fame, Theasen and Lisa Sukdev helped Mariam Seedat produce a memory book for me, which featured hundreds of messages from family, friends and colleagues. Theasen and Lisa even paid for the printing and production of the one-off book. They surprised me with it on the morning of the induction ceremony and the memory book remains one of my most treasured items. Apart from his humility and sincerity, Theasen was very generous, whether it was feeding the poor or making food parcels for those who were struggling, Theasen made a positive difference. He was authentic and he had purpose and passion. I am still trying to come to terms with this loss but I want to convey my sincere condolences to Theasen’s mom aunty Babs, to Lisa, to his brother and sister and to the rest of his family and friends. And sympathies to the team at TPA Legal. Rest in Peace my brother. Your memory will always be a blessing…”
“I don’t care what anyone says I don’t believe that Theasen Pillay who was such a strong proponent of humanity and women’s rights and the rights of the vulnerable would have taken his own life. Here he was with me at a meeting planning for our Women empowerment program in KZN. This loss is so huge for the community he served with such grace and enthusiasm. Theasen, only you know what happened in those moments. May your soul find eternal rest. I’m devastated by this loss!”
