Dear Ashi and family: I was saddened to hear of the passing of Ashok. I recently retired after a 43 year career in the HVAC business and one of my greatest takeaways are the many wonderful people that I had the pleasure of working with over my career. Ashok would be right at the top of the list as one of the kindest, nicest and genuine people I had the pleasure of working with. Reading his obituary, it does not surprise me that he was so loved by family and friends. My Sincere condolences and I hope you can take comfort in knowing that he touched many lives and there are many who care.

Ashok our friend. He was very kind,caring,loving,joyful,and full of life person. A priest once said " It is important how we live and help others. It is most important how we leave this world when our Creator calls us back." Ashok lived,helped and left in dignity. We pray for peace of his soul. We will miss him. Ashi, you are person of strength. We pray that God gives you and your family more strength, Always & All Ways, to bear this loss. Our prayers for your peace for this loss. Our loves to you all. Maya & Arjan

Ashok Mama was definitely the leader of the family, we all looked upto. I remember coming to Wisconsin and spending summers and him and eating chocolate bars in hiding from Ashi Mami and him pushing me to learn boating, jet skiing, water skiing etc and his huge suffocating bear hugs. I know he will be smiling down on us always.

As I think of Uncle, I am reminded that as jovial as he was, he was also so compassionate, caring and had so much heart, soul and zest for life . I am reminded that my dad and uncle shared that passion - for the community, family friends , our Puja family and being the adventurous Indian Uncles skiing, boating, camping and teaching us a sense of adventure and spirit . Auntie, Neil,Jay and family — may cherished memories stay forever in your hearts of a life well lived … Rest In Peace Uncle -

Dear Ashi I was quite shattered at hearing that Ashok is no more. I can well understand that you all who were with him till his last moments were more affected. Since our last Zoom call at end of August till his posting on WhatsApp till mid September there was no indication that there was anything wrong with him. Our deepest sympathy on your loss. He was so full of life despite his health issues that he put us all to shame. Our Reunions between 2008-14 was only possible because of his conducting it and motivating all of us to get out of our inertia. I treasure the links we renewed after a gap of 45 years and he made me feel ashamed for leaving it for so long. He was well read, knowledgeable, humane and a perfect gentleman. He touched the lives of everyone he met and made it better. Such people are irreplaceable and unforgettable. Pray Almighty God will shower His Choicest blessings on this very noble soul. Om Shanti Om Shanti 🙏🙏🙏 Prakash Kamath 😢😢
