Help support Naveen's family

Naveen, a compassionate human with cheerful disposition met with a fatal accident during a trip to India. On February 4th, Naveen (31) died in a tragic drowning accident. The tragedy took place in Tamil Nadu, India as the family was travelling to celebrate their son’s 2nd birthday. While standing on the banks of the Coleroon River, Naveen and his son slipped and fell into the water. Naveen was able to save his son but could not save himself from the strong currents; he will forever be remembered as a hero. 

Naveen is survived by Padma (26) and their son. The three had travelled from their home in Kirkland, WA to visit their family in India. Naveen worked full-time in Redmond and Padma is pursuing her Master’s degree. Needless to say, there are many pieces to pick up and many years of healing ahead. Naveen will forever live in the memories of those who knew and loved him.

We ask for your support in helping Padma get back on her feet. The funds will go towards housing, education, and childcare. We request you to share this page on Facebook and other social media with your friends and acquaintances.

Thank you for prayers, support, and contribution.

God bless!
