He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Daksha Shah; survived by his older sister, older brother, younger sister and younger brother, nieces and nephews. He leaves behind dozens of family and friends in both the United States and India. A native of Ahmedabad, India, he left his hometown for the US in the 1960s to pursue his MBA in New York. He and his wife started their life together in Norristown, PA. and they eventually moved back to India in the late 1970s where they raised their children. He had a truly global mindset and lead his family by example to be inquisitive, adventurous, knowledgeable, and above all accepting of people and ideas of any culture or background. He was generous beyond measure and he gave of his time and money to anyone or anything in need. He was quiet and humble, and most people never understood the depth of his generosity. Ramesh put his family first above all things, dedicated his life to their growth and well-being. He was proud of his children and grandchildren and often spent the time letting them know this in his quiet way. Despite a hearing impairment in his later years in life, he was always an amazing listener, and this ability provided his family with access to his wisdom and experience. He was a kind, gentle and religious man; always with a smile on his face; enjoying peaceful time with his wife on a swing. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Our memories will keep him with us forever more.
