It is with the heaviest of hearts we inform you the loss of our beloved Shrinath. Shrinath was a kind-hearted person who has supported so many friends, families and the broader community. His sense of humor always brought out a smile in everyone’s face. He was a great leader, team player and mentor for his colleagues. He is survived by his amazing wife, Amrutha, who is a homemaker and a cute son who is 4 years old.
The unthinkable does happen. Shrinath had gone for a normal planned heart procedure three weeks back. Unfortunately, he developed some complications and had a massive cardiac arrest on 02/16/19. He battled for his life courageously for three weeks. Despite undergoing multiple surgeries his condition deteriorated and he passed away on 03/09/2019.
His elderly parents in India are in a severe state of shock, his wife and son are under tremendous emotional pressure and grief. He was on a work visa and the only breadwinner of the family. We want to stand together with this wonderful family and pave way for a smooth transition during this sad phase of their life.
We, Friends of Shrinath, are organizing this campaign on behalf of his wife, son and parents. We are a team of his close friends and colleagues from Atlanta GA area and have known him personally for years.
This go-fund me campaign is to raise funds to:
1. Support the family to relocate to India
2. Manage living expenses for the next year until Shrinath's wife can get job training and find a job
3. Secure funds for the kid’s education (we would like his bright, naughty and adorable son to thrive and succeed as per his dad’s wishes)
4. Support his elderly parents who have deteriorating health and other medical ailments (Shrinath was the only ray of hope for them till date)
5. Handle local expenses, debts
All the funds that are getting collected in the campaign will be directly deposited to the beneficiary's/Amrutha’s account. The funds collected will be managed and invested by the beneficiary after consultation with a financial adviser to cover both short-term living expenses of the family (Shrinath's wife, son and parents) and also to cover long-term educational expenses for the kid.
With high hopes, we sincerely request you all to support this campaign. This was a simple planned procedure. Many of us undergo such simple procedures, but for Shrinath, it turned out to be a fatal complication. His loss can neither be compensated nor his family’s grief can be taken away in a short span of time. However, we all can make a big difference in their lives by contributing towards this campaign.
We will always remain grateful for your generous contributions. Please respond to this GoFundMe if you need any additional detail and we will be more than happy to respond as early as possible.
Thanks in advance and god bless you all!
