Dear friends,

It saddens us to announce the untimely death of our beloved friend, Anuj Khandelwal. Anuj passed away due to an unfortunate accident at Deer Creek State Park in Utah on Aug 12, 2017. He was only 32 years old and is survived by Anshul, his wife of 3 years. The two were out kayaking when the accident took place. Anshul was saved by a samaritan but there wasn't enough time to rescue Anuj.

Anuj was always a brilliant, top-of-the-class student. He had recently completed his PhD in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Kansas and was working as a Post Doctoral Researcher at the University of Illinois. Anuj and Anshul began their careers a year ago and were slated for a great future ahead.

He brought much joy and love to all he knew. There will be a noticeable void with his absence. 

As you can imagine, the family is grieving right now and the last thing we want them to worry about is finances. Funeral expenses are only the beginning for this family. Funeral expenses will include transporting Anuj to India, his wife, Anshul's flight tickets, funeral arrangements and memorial service.

We are reaching out to the community for donations to help offset his final expenses, and if possible to help relieve some of the financial strain Anshul will face during this devastating time.

Anyone who knew Anuj, knows that he had a huge heart and would help anyone who needed it. Please consider helping his family in their time of need.

The angels looked down from heaven one night
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.

They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven
Forever to remain.

Look down on us from heaven
Keep us free from hurt and pain,
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again.
