In memory of Suresh Thambirajah

On May 15, 2020, Surendran Thambirajah (Suresh) was killed in a tragic vehicle accident near Smiths Falls, Ontario. He died a hero while helping another driver who drove into a hydro pole (

He was a tireless community worker who dedicated his entire life to the betterment of Canadians and the Tamil community around the globe. He was also a proud father of five children and a loving husband.
He is loved very much and is dearly missed by his family, friends, co-workers, the community, and everyone who had met him. We are all heartbroken by the loss of our beloved Suresh Anna.

This fundraiser is organized by the Ottawa Tamil Community to help alleviate some of the financial burdens of his heartbroken family. The raised funds will be deposited in a trust fund to be used by the family of Suresh Thambirajah.

Please help with what you can and we thank you for your kindness during these difficult times.
