Can someone expand upon the OBIT for this amazing man?

This is just a para from Wiki :

"Tjilpi Bob Randall (c. 1934 – 13 May 2015) was a Yankunytjatjara elder from Australia, member of the Stolen Generations and NAIDOC's 1999 Person of the Year.[1] He is credited with bringing to light the issue of forced removal of Aboriginal children from their families, in 1970. His song, "My Brown Skin Baby They Take Him Away," written at the time, is described as an "anthem" for the Stolen Generations. Randall died in Mutitjulu, Northern Territory, on 13 May 2015, aged approximately 81.[2]"

This is a link to him singing his most famous composition "Brown Skin Baby (they took me away)" :
