True story: A Sith, after being mortally wounded and stranded on a planet, came across a man and his family. He tortured and killed the man's family, feeding off his sorrow and pain, and became strong enough to continue. He survived that encounter.
I suspect that while the Sith feed their strenght by suffering of others the Jedi are weakened by the pain of others... Remember, the Sith only think of themselves and care for noone else while the Jedi were selfless, carring deeply for the others and helping if they could...
In his own words, "He's more machine than man now." I don't profess to know the inner workings of his mind, but if he had come to the conclusion that Vader could not be turned back to the Light, pity would not be an issue any longer.
Even as he was standing near the almost completely dissembodied Anakin he still had the pity that stalled his saber
Anyway, on to the topic. Whether or not Obi-wan could have taken Vader is irrelevant. Now, if you wanted to get into that, you would have to factor in the facts that Obi-wan squeaked by with a victory only because Anakin was foolish and was overconfidant in his abilities (maybe not an issue now that he's been smacked down a few times?). But, Obi-wan is older, and Anakin more powerful in the body and also in the Dark Side. And, it's a proven fact that the Dark Side is more powerful than the Light. It's feasible for the fight to go in either's favor, but I think definitively saying Obi-wan would win again is a mistake.
Well, after I indulge that "irrelevant" topic...
It doesn't matter if his death was necessary. Obi-wan felt it was necessary. So, it was.
Yeah, don't ask me. That's some Jedi mumbo jumbo. I prefer the Sith, at least they talk straight.
"Oh, come on... be reasonable. You can't destroy everything; where would you sit?"
