 Rameshbhai Ranchhodbhai Joshi

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved Rameshbhai Ranchhodbhai Joshi, residing in Leicester, England, on Sunday 21st February, 2021 at Glenfield Hospital at the age of 69.

He was blessed in that he was not alone and that his daughter-in-law Surekha was by his side, holding his hand until his last breath.

Rameshbhai was joined in prayer with close family over video call shortly before his passing, where he smiled and laughed and told his family he was at peace and in ‘aanand.’

Rameshbhai was a kind and gentle man, whose generosity had no bounds.  Born on 4th October 1951 in Nairobi, Kenya, he moved to Leicester in 1969.  He touched the lives of all those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.  He was the happiest when performing ‘seva’ and helping those around him.  He was a pillar of strength and wisdom, not only to his family, but also to his community.

Rameshbhai is survived by; his wife Hansaben, son Nayan; son and daughter-in-law Mahesh and Surekha and grand-daughters Ayaana and Sienna; son and daughter in law Kiran and Preeti and grandchildren Aarav and Anjli.  He will also be missed by the family dog, Tilly, his ‘Prani’,  who he was incredibly close to and who was very dear to him.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we politely request our family and friends to refrain from visiting our family residence.
