It sometimes so happens that we miss the moments and only memories remain. Words are left unsaid and goodbyes are incomplete.

On Saturday October 6th our good friend, Nataraj Venkateshappa, passed away due to a sudden and massive cardiac arrest, aged just 37.

Nataraj was a kind hearted person, highly dedicated at work, resourceful, extremely passionate about politics and loved sports. You could always rely on him for a good lunch topic to de-stress.

Nataraj worked as a Project Lead at SLK America working for client First Tennessee Bank.

He loved to spend his personal time with his 3 year old daughter Shradha, and the naughtiness in her is quite evident as a trait passed down from him. His wife Vidya was very supportive of his passion for work and sacrificed her job to support him at onsite when the opportunity came his way in March 2018.

In an ever more heartbreaking note, Nataraj’s parents tragically lost their other son about 2 years ago. Nataraj’s dad lost the use of his arms, legs and speech to paralysis after the incident and continues to be so. With both of them gone now, they are left with no support – both financial and moral.

Short of words, he leaves a big void in the life of family and friends whose life he has touched. The bereaved family is trying hard to come to terms with such a tragic and sudden loss. Friends and colleagues are doing their best to support them in the process of logistics back to India along with mortal remains of Nataraj.

We are reaching out to all good hearted fellow friends for extending financial support in this hour of their extreme sorrow. It would be great help for the family to cope with the situation without a financial burden on their minds, though it cannot compensate the loss of a beloved son, a loving husband and an ever affectionate father. We hope and pray that Nataraj’s soul rests in peace and the family finds strength to handle this extreme loss.

Please pass this link along to all your friends and relatives.
