In Remembrance of Palani (PJ) Vanderford

In Remembrance of Palani (PJ) Vanderford

It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Palani Vanderford. Palani left us suddenly on September 28, 2020, leaving behind two daughters, Violet (6 years), and Genevieve (3 years). He was 44 years old.

Palani was an inventor, an artist, a dedicated father and an extremely hard worker. A cherished brother and son, he never failed to lend a hand or go the extra mile for family or friends in need. Above all else, Palani loved his girls and was the best daddy to them. He loved to take them hiking and exploring, cooked amazing meals for them, and gave the best snuggles on the planet.

Palani was a loving father, husband, son, brother, cousin and nephew and we are all devastated by his loss. Please help us raise funds to cover funeral expenses and for a trust to support his daughters. Thank you so much for your love and support.
