His family will remember him as devoted son and father. He brought his mother to the Swaminarayan temple every week without fail. His favorite food was eating his mother’s typical Gujarati dinner (Daal, Bhaat, Rotli, Shaak). He was the type of person who would choose to repair something over buying a new one. He valued hard work, honesty, and loyalty. To his daughter, he was loving, gentle and fair. He made sure to instill his values on her as well as the importance of family. To his wife, he was loving and caring. He made it a priority to keep the romance alive, and always wanted to put his wife before himself.
Shivam is a survived by his loving wife Chintal, his daughter Saanvi; and his mother Rama.
