Lively life lost forever.

It's with deepest sadness that we inform you of the demise of our beloved friend Raveendran Chinnasamy. Wife in mid 30s and her two daughters in middle and elementary school, suddenly found the floor yanked from their feet when their sole care giver collapsed in front of their eyes. One moment he was coaching soccer to kids on the field as rest of the family watched from the side lines. Next moment he came down for water and suddenly collapsed with heavy cardiac arrest in the soccer field. He was declared dead in the hospital about an hour later (on April 16, 2016). Bright future of a close-knit family was suddenly eclipsed by brutal reality.

Raveendran was beloved husband and caring father. He was a very active person and also good soccer coach for kids. As seen in the below photo, he was last seen coaching the kids along with his daughter Mahathi moments before he passed away. Raveendran was special to everyone and can never be forgotten.


Tragedy struck at the worst moment when his family needed him the most. His elder daughter Mitra will be going to high school next year, and younger daughter currently in elementary school. His wife Maheswari is a homemaker.

As family friends, we will do our level best to provide moral, emotional and other support necessary to carry on their lives in East Brunswick, New Jersey. We express our heartfelt condolences to Raveendran's family.

In an effort to assist the family financially and address the numerous inquiries from friends who wish to help at this time of need, we are establishing this campaign. The primary focus of this fundraiser is to assist with the children’s education.

Your contribution towards this campaign and any assistance is highly appreciated.

Rest In Peace, Raveendran!
