Help Chandra's family build a Life.

Life is so unpredictable and this family has experienced the worst of it. Things were going well for Chandra's family until this tragedy struck in a most unexpected way. Their lives turned upside down within minutes on June 12th. God decided to take him back.

Chandra with his extended family went to William O'Brien State Park for a fun evening. In the process of  moving kids out of water, Chandra got caught in the turbulence himself and could not be found for several minutes. He was pronounced dead around 4pm on Saturday June 12th leaving his family and friends in shock.

 Chandra is survived by wife Shylaja, mom and two young kids, 12 and 5. The grieving family also includes his loving sister Mona and brother-in-law Murali and their two kids. Chandra had great plans for his kids and it is unfortunate that he is not here to fulfil.  We wanted to start this fundraiser to help the family with immediate needs and  for his kids' higher education.  Please help this family in need!

Chandra was fun loving and loved to spend time with his family. There was never a dull moment with him around. We have lost a good husband, awesome father, brother and a friend. 

Please Keep Chandra and his family in your thoughts and prayers. May God give his family the strength to overcome this immense loss. Appreciate your kindness and support!!
